The Lacy Bonnet by Erika Knight

Here is the Lacy Bonnet. I just put the bows on last night.

Here's Kate, eating the bow, like I knew she would.

My lips are permanently attached to those cheeks. And why wouldn't they be?

The back view of the starflower lacy pattern. I love that little bit of neck peeking out. The pattern came from the book Knitting for Two by Erika Knight. Things I learned:
How to make a stitch without leaving a hole in the work.
How to pick up stitches and knit them.
The hardest part was making the bows. Go figure.
