For some reason I got bit by the "must finish something" bug yesterday. Thankfully, I have many projects in the "almost finished" category. I decided to pick up the Baby Bolero from Debbie Bliss' Cashmerino Baby II. I'd finished everything except for sewing up one side, sewing in the ends, and doing the edging. I improvised on the edging, because it called for about 2 feet of 5 stitch wide garter stitch, which was then to be sewn along the front, neck, and back. Honestly, I had no interest in dull work like that, so I crocheted the edge.
I think it turned out well, and with use, it will get better. I find that crocheted edges need wear to look their best. The yarn is Debbie Bliss Cashmerino Baby in a pretty raspberry color. I don't know if you can tell from the picture, but the sleeves are 3/4 length, which will be great for the warmer weather.
I think part of my need to finish some things comes from my desire to get the house cleaned up. I've realized that I have way too much yarn, and way to many WIPs.
