She's all done. Fern has been put together and ready to wear. No buttons to sew, and no collar or button band to attach. Made in three, that's right, three easy pieces. I learn a new technique with the ruffled collar. It's done with a wrap and turn, similar to the short row method, and the ruffle-y bit at the very edge is made with a chain stitch. I'm still getting used to the purl stitch being the right side, it so different. It's so ingrained in me that purl side is the wrong side.
We had fun poking around the new Central Library. It's big! Very modern. Very cool.
Do you have pink and purple foam rubber chairs at your library?
Look, a casualty of the library's labyrinth.
