BSJ approaches the finish line!
and lace prepares for take off

The BSJ has been completely frogged and reknitted so that there are no more M1 holes - I quite like the pattern the 'knit into front and back of stitch' increases made. All that is needed now are seams and buttons! Mind you, the buttons will be on the wrong side - I miscalculated which side was which and I'm not going to frog again! Instead, I'm going to call it the Lefty Mama BSJ 'cos lefties [like me] will find it easier to do up!

It's time to cast on for the wedding stole - I have 14 weeks to turn hundreds of metres of lace-weight into lovely lace: DD has chosen "Myrtle Leaf Shawl" from Victorian Lace Today [p.140ff]


  1. oh how exciting! That's a lovely shawl. I will watch and admire!

  2. You never know your BSJ may go to a boy. :)

    Good luck with the lace.

  3. Good work on the BSJ! Are we going to get to see a picture?!!!
    The shawl sounds lovely, too-does a deadline help or hinder your knitting?

  4. Oooh! I did the Myrtle Leaf in VLT - but I did it as a scarf. I loved the pattern, and I can see myself using it again. Make sure you check the errata thouhg, I am pretty sure there was a small but significant error in the book :)
