Mason Dixon After Dark Nightie is Complete!

Despite my busy work schedule this week, I made a point of attending my favorite knitting circles to get some pointers on finishing my Mason Dixon After Dark Nightie as well as to take the piece for a test drive.

Having used 100% Egyptian cotton, I was reticient to block the nightie. Consulting with a few members of the UWS knitters gruop confirmed that I was on the right track. Therefore I just sewed the front and back together.

For finishing around the neckline and armholes, I picked up stitches and knitted 3 rows of garter stitch to match the bottom of the lace at the lower border. I like the way that it lays.

My friends have been urging me to wear it out with my man and stockings and heels but I’m still debating this one.

Here’s how the top finishing looks:
