Progress! thanks to pins.

A few weeks ago I asked about some troubles I was having sewing up a picot hem. Thanks for the suggestions! I adapted trek and twistle's suggestions — I put pins in the spaces between the picots so I could line up with them (though I didn't actually pin the hem shut). Whew. It made it go MUCH faster and I was able to make a lot of progress on the dratted hems. I rewarded myself with some mattress seaming, so I'm here:

Still knitting the final arm, and then I'll get the rest of the finishing done. Yay! Maybe before the intended recipient fully outgrows it, even.

In other news, Earin won the drawing for the copy of Interweave Knits Holiday Gifts. But I discovered I actually had two spare copies! So, I put the names in the hat again and this time drew Becky's name. You'll both get a copy of the magazine.

Stay tuned for more giveaways... I have other magazines, yarn etc to slowly destash.

You are so productive! Love the top, especially the ribbing.

I LOVE winning things! Thank you Valerie! I have yet to knit a picot edging. It's on my list of things to learn. Right now the simple lace is taking ALL of my brain cells!
