a break from lace

After finishing the Lily of the Valley lace section, I threaded through another LifeLine, just in case. And boy, am I ever glad I did! I've had to rip back to that LifeLine three times. I just can't seem to get the lace border section right. More than a little frustrated I put aside my lace project, instead knitting this newborn sized hat for the Burera Hospital in Rwanda. I'm using up some Shepherd 4 ply baby wool I bought last year. With the babies in primitive, often damp shelters and exposed to open cooking fires, wool seemed to be the way to go. Can you imagine, the hospital delivered quadruplets to a local Rwandan woman by natural childbirth last week !?!
