All Hail Queen Mary Jane!
I needed knitted happiness. So I did something quick and dirty. For the Sweet Mary Jane cardigan, your gauge swatch is a little sachet. How cute is that. So that is Celeste's Sachet blocking. I'll post a finished pic of her today.
I do see a problem though. The sachet is 54 stitches knitted on size 6 dpns. Despite being really careful, I got some pretty serious ladders that didn't seem to wash out. The sleeve is about the same number of stitches worked on the dpns. I don't want ladders in my sleeves. Course I'm only really seeing the ladders in the stockinette. It might not affect the lace pattern. I'll have to wait for it to dry.
The majority of this knitting was accomplished while waiting for the dentist yesterday afternoon. I just finished it up this morning. Talk about quick and dirty! This would make cute little Christmas ornaments. Done in a hollyberry red with some cinnamon potpourri stuffed inside.... Hmmmm.....
