A pretty show & tell set

If you were at the August meeting, then you saw Donna showing off this beautiful layette set as a work in progress. It is finished! Donna started off with the cute bonnet. Then she thought maybe she ought to work up those adorable little booties as well. And somehow she found herself casting on for the dress. This is for her granddaughter Elizabeth who should be coming into the world around 2 September. The outfit will likely be worn for Elizabeth’s dedication.

Donna was kind enough to supply some technical details. The book is Leisure Arts LA-75012. Donna used size #2 needles with Phildar Coton D’Egypte Sport. She made a slip with cotton fabric. And apparently she hasn't yet tired of this 4-row lace pattern, because she is now working on a knitted bib with the same design for the trim.

As beautiful and adorable as infants are, it is hard to imagine how exquisitely lovely Elizabeth will look in this outfit.
