An account of the craftwork I get up to, tatting, spinning, knitting, sewing, whatever

Frost Flowers Top
Well, it's done, Frost Flowers Top, from a pattern by Lankakomera that I found on Ravelry. I hope it fulfils all the criteria of the knitting competition - sleeveless, goes over the head, lacy but without long loops....The rules did say that a crochet edging was acceptable, but I felt that it looked unfinished, so I knitted a scallop edging for the neck. I used ladder stitch to sew the side seams and am pleased that they look more or less invisible:
And inside, where there is a slight ridge, but nothing too obtrusive. It will be months before the judging is done, but at least now I have done my bit.
