Off the shuttle: Tatted embellishments on christening outfit

Years ago, my mother's hobby was doll making and sewing outfits for the dolls. She used some of my early tatted edging as an embellishment. Now that I'm so much better at tatting, I decided to make new edgings. The light blue edgings are DMC size 20 and size 30. The darker blue on the bonnet is a vintage thread in size 70.

On the Needles: Knit Along Shawl

I bought this yarn from Warm 'n Fuzzy, the new yarn shop in Cary. It's "Crazy" from Stonehedge Fiber Mill. It's basically mill ends that are spun together in random order so no two skeins are alike. The pattern is a knit-along shawlette with directions given out from early August till Labor Day. So far, I've knitted all the clues and am waiting for the final set of directions.
