Great News

Look - My Ballerina is blocking and she's almost done.

I am so glad that I did it this way. Now that I have blocked her I can see that I only need a neat little edging on the cuff of about 5 ridges. If I had followed the pattern to the letter and done 13 ridges - it would have been waaaaaay too long. So thank you ladies for your input. I can't wait to get this baby finished and handed over to my Mum - I hope she really likes it, this has been a cathartic knit for me. I started it when I moved to Oman - knitted it whilst I was pregnant - knitted it after I lost my twins at 15 weeks and it has really seen me through my emotional and physical recovery. I means a lot to me and so I hope it means a lot to my Mum and it is something she will wear and think of me.

I'll try to post a picture of my Mum wearing it if I can get her to pose in it for long enough !

Thanks again ladies - you have all been of great help to me.

Becky, your Ballerina looks beautiful!
I'm sorry about your loss. I am sure your mother will love it, what a wonderful gift.

Knitting is so therapeutic for me and it sounds like it was for you as well. I hope your Mum does stand still long enough so we can see how wonderful it looks on her. This kind of gift will last for a long long time.
