FO: Christening dress
This is the christening dress from Hell that I frogged about ten times. Glad it's out of the house and with my daughter in Seattle. Sheesh! It's a Gingerbread cable with Fireside lace on the bottom. I made the pattern up. It was my first lace project.

You can post it here so people don't have to wait for two pages to load.

It's very pretty!

It's lovely. If there is one thing knitting has taught me is patience. I have frogged stuff so many times my croaker is broke! lol

Jan, I tried to post photos twice on this forum, but it doesn't like me. The first time I got an error message saying I wasn't authorized to post or something like that. The second time when I went to upload this, I keep getting messages saying there's an error. Flicker's my only option at this point. And I did resize the photos.

I put it in your original post for you. I think you just haven't learned how to do it yet. In the photostream I clicked on the picture. Then on the next page I clicked the arrow next to actions that is above the photo and selected all sizes. Choose the size you want then right click and choose "copy image location" (In firefox) and then click the image button in KH and paste the link in the box and click okay. Voila!

Thank you! You're so sweet. I'll play around with it on my upcoming days off. Gotta work today. Tonight is Monday night football with the big Packer-Vikings rivalry game, so that's booked.

Lovely dress! I especially like the lacy border. And I didn't know Lionbrand had a stitch library too.
