wrong side - nuntium ducentesimum undeoctigesimum

I thought "I'll do this in a different order".


Turns out I put the final row on the wrong side!
Maybe I'll finish this week.

Baby bonnet - nuntium ducentesimum duodeoctigesimum

I've been working on a baby bonnet.  I'm trying Karen Cabrera's lovely pattern.  I'm afraid I don't really like size 10.  This is my "backup bonnet".  I have a dear colleague who will be having a baby in May.  Even though I've stopped making such time-intensive items for others, this woman is very special.  Not only is she one of the sweetest people around, she also asked to learn to tat a few years ago.  She hasn't been too active (got married last year) as a tatter, she understands what tatting is and the time involved.  Plus I just wanted to make something special for her.
Here's the start, needed 18 of them.

Very easy but with size 10, the shuttles had to be filled all the time!

Got going and forgot to take a middle picture.
Now still has restarted, so we'll see when this gets done... : )
