Thanks! I love the texture also. The yarn is an interesting thick & thin spin (mostly thin). It was fun to knit, and felt wonderful flowing through my fingers. Each row added a teeny bit to the length, because the yarn was so thin. But, I just love the finished fabric!
I'm hoping that simple is what the baby's parents want. I wish I had been able to knit when my boys were little. I would definitely have made a top like this for them. (with a different embellishment, of course!) :teehee:
Thanks Jan! When I got that yarn, I couldn't decide what I would make with it. Then, when I looked through that vintage pattern book, I glanced over and saw that yarn...BINGO!
Thank you! I've been doing embroidery since I was a young girl. I think it's best to do a small bit of embroidery, to keep it looking clean and bright. I considered doing a blanket stitch all along the edges, but decided that would not look right. I'm very happy with the little blossom.
