Hemlock Anyone?

She's done!!!!

And I get to use my Mother's Day gift - Knitter's Block! It's not big enough - so she spills over the sides. But I love it!

Jada loves Hemlock too!

As previously mentioned, the cast off takes a while, but after you get used to it, it is not too bad. I will still use the crochet cast-off for any future versions.

And - Hemlock has a sister Rona that is coming along....

I lurve Rona. She is silky and sexy.

And she is not boring, while it's pretty easy to see what is going on. Each row is sort of different. There is some knitted lace, some lace knitting, even some ribbing which I had not done in lace before. She keeps you going each round. I only wish she had a chart - too many words! But not to difficult to visualize and follow what is going on.

Baby girl has rice all over her face, Babee Tenda and bib. I question how much is in her stomach. Back to being a mommy.

I love it! I cannot wait to see mine done too. I've got some ideas on how to block it out. . . How many rows did you do? Jared's count, or the full chart? And how much yarn did it take? I'm making mine larger so I'm curious. I'm past Jared's count but mine seems smaller :( Looks lovely, and little J is so cute as your model.

I love it, it's absolutely beautiful. I haven't tried lace yet, but this really makes me want to dive in.
