A Friday Finished Project

Finally, I have finished my "Minnie" project! It has been sitting in a cupboard for a couple of years, waiting for me to finish the lace edging. Today was lunch at the Philbrook Museum, so I finished it up last night and found a dress in my closet that matches!

Pattern: Minnie by Louisa Harding
Yarn: Ultra Silk by Berroco

I would like to thank my dear mother for teaching me how to sew when I was a little girl. A lot of knitters really hate "sewing up" the knit pieces -- but I actually don't mind at all, since my embroidery, hemming and sewing years taught me how to handle that! The worst part was knitting the lace edging -- which is knit in a strip about a mile long, and then sewed around all the edges.

Oh, it's lovely. And goes very well with the dress too.

I also am glad I learned to sew as a little girl.
