Sometimes I see a knit design that I just have to make. And sometimes after the knitting is done I wonder what I was thinking.
I really like the idea of Maude.
Maude does not like me. Or more specifically, Maude and my rear view do not compliment each other.
Knitting Maude was a piece of cake. I did make a modification to the design, however. I was not happy with the unfinished look around the back, front and arm openings and the stockinette stitch wanted to curl. Still in denial about our compatibility, I decided to add a purchased bit of lace. As if 3 yards of lace would distract from the upholstery.
I figured out a way to crochet a chain around the edges to attach the lace. It worked like a charm and added a nice touch.
I was feeling very Downton Abbey about it.
If not, Elle has a pretty new frock.
