The nice thing about summer knitting is that the projects go quickly. I was able to finish my Isabella in less than two weeks. Having a long weekend helped, since I had more down time to do all the seaming and hemming.
The edging is a neat trick. You knit about half an inch, then do a row repeating YO, K2tog. This creates a row of small circles. When you fold this over, it becomes the scalloped (or picot) edge.
