Damson is FINALLY off the needles, It has been ongoing for so long that I deleted it from my Ravelry queue so I'm not sure when I actually started it. I'd be willing to admit to longer than a year! She languished in a zippie bag on a holder for a long time until Emily took her to summer camp and got her back on track. Then the lace border was one row from finished and my brain just didn't wrap around it so Silvana showed me the true meaning of knit INTO that hole and don't worry about those 2 yarn overs.
She's bound off and complete ---- and I think she will be a Christmas Gift. Much as I love her, this labor of love really should go to someone I think. I'm thinking about it anyway.
Unblocked at this point HotDamson is bundled up with a wee packet of Soak to be washed and given a good block when my Mom leaves this weekend. No sense in losing the dining room table at this point.
That lacey edge is going to be so pretty when it's blocked!
Elizabeth (and Emily and Silvana) were right........... Knit on with confidence and hope through all crises!
