Noelle Renae Browne

My honorary nephew, Sweet Willie Browne's, sister Noelle arrived on Sunday! 7# /4oz/21 inches long and absolutely adorable.  She gets that from her Aunt Molly Bee! (NOT!)

 Here are some pictures of the christening gown I made for her.  She received them yesterday so it's safe to post now.

I was a little disappointed when I realized as I was blocking it, that there were color shifts in the yarn even though it's white and all the same lot number. You can see where I started a new skein twice although it's not all that noticible unless it's laying flat. The yarn got a shiny thread running through it and I wonder if it has to do with which direction the skein was knit from-outside or inside-might make a difference in the sheen and be noticible. Don't know for sure.

I also knit little Mary Janes from a free pattern that I found on the internet. It was only when I was packing them that I realized that they both button on the same side. Doh! You get what you pay for pattern-wise!
So, see! There has been knitting. And, hold on to your hats, People! I'm posting ANOTHER finished project tomorrow!

Big congrats, auntie!
