Top 'O The Mornin'


Little Colleen and I wanted to wish everyone a Happy St. Patrick's Day!

French knot curls peek out under her bonnet, and a shawl of Twedie 18 in diagonal mosaic stitch keeps her warm. (Note: Rainbow Gallery discontinued this thread several years ago, replacing it with Rainbow Tweed.)

Her apron is stitched in alternating rows of braided knitting and slanted gobelin stitches, while the bottom of her dress was worked in the Milanese stitch. Over her arm hangs a market basket in mosaic stitches.

Hope you all enjoy this grand day!
