My mom went to make bottles for the babies and came back to find them celebrating joyously. Victory was theirs; they had found a hidden prize and their determination and efforts had finally paid off. They were waving their quarry in the air, cheering and poking their little fingers through the lace. It's a good thing I love them so much. Now I just have to figure out if and how I can repair the damage. Yes, there are nupps, yes, there are many broken ends in the yarn, and only a couple of the marked areas are pulled stitches.
