Love is not love Which alters when it alteration finds, Or bends with the remover to remove: Whose worth's unknown, although his height be taken.
Love's not Time's fool, though rosy lips and cheeks Within his bending sickle's compass come; Love alters not with his brief hours and weeks, But bears it out even to the edge of doom.

Carolyn Mills is a knitter, crocheter, spinner, dyer, reader, and history lover. Her dream would be to work with fiber for a living someday, but in the meantime, she makes the most of every minute she has to devote to crafting. She took pleasure in playing with her new- est baby nephew, George. Weston, with her baby on her knee, indulging in such reflections as these, was one of the happiest women in the world.
If any thing could increase her delight, it was perceiving that the baby would soon have outgrown Its first set of caps. If this is the case, then ignore the decreases and yarnovers as given in the chart and instead work Seed Stitch in pattern as set. N o Regency-era layette would be complete without a bonnet. It is knitted at a very fine gauge but is so small that it won't take too long to work up.
The del- icate lacy patterns bestow an heirloom quality — as certainly befits every baby. Bon- Stitch Guide Seed Stitch: Rep Row 1 for pattern.

Cont in established patt, until 48 54, 60 Lace Rows have been worked, end- ing after Row 6 of Chart D — , sts.
Temporarily transfer the live sts to lengths of waste yarn to make it easier block, remove m. Trans- fer them back to the needle once the blocking is complete and the pieces are dry. With cir and RS facing, pick up sts from the Back as foil: With WS facing each other, hold the Back and Main Section tog so that the needle holding the , sts from the Main Section is in front of the cir holding the , sts that you just picked up from the Back.
Simultaneously join the pieces and bind off as foil: Pull rem st open until the end comes through. Hold the 3 strands together and twist until they are tightly twisted. Fold in half, letting the 2 halves twist tog; smooth out if needed. Knot the open end tog; knot the oth- er end and cut it open at the very end so that both ends look the same. You now have a drawstring about 37 38, 40 " long. Attach a safety pin to one end of the drawstring and thread it through the hem at the CO edge of the Main Section. Pull drawstring so that there is a roughly equal length of drawstring on each side of the bonnet.
