I cast on for the lace cable photo mat (another great project from Handknit Holidays...did I mention that I love that book?) on Saturday and just put the finishing touches on it this morning. For such a small project it sure did take a lot of time. I am thrilled with the results though. I knit it from Peruvian Silk in celadon (our wedding colour) and I think it adds a special touch to one of my favourite wedding photos. I hope I have enough yarn left to knit the willow leaf mat in a 5x7 size. I'd love to frame one of Julian's newborn pics in a similar but not too matchy-matchy way.
Speaking of the little guy, he has a tooth! It's not out all the way yet but you can certainly feel a sharp tooth there now. So one down, how many to go?
