Last week I showed a second edging (and a variation) from The Home Book of Pleasure and Instruction, by Laura Valentine and Mrs Aylmer, (published in 1867). The net edging was called Another and Wider Edging. This week I tried another variation on this same edge. This time, instead of having a single knot tied in the loops at the beginning and ending of the row, I net 3 knots in the first and last loops of the row.
Today I had the time to starch all three versions of this edge.
Which of the three versions do you like best? I think I like version 2.

This week I net two small bags. I am calling them Puppet Pouches since they were made to hold small knit finger puppets. The instructions were the same except for the handles.
The bag on the left has a regular, single handle.
The bag on the right has a twist in the handle that makes the entire bag a moebius bag. That means that the entire bag has only one surface: no back or front, no inside or outside, just one surface.
