This is my first attempt at a dropped stitch project. I'm not a huge fan of the colours (orange and yellow), but seeing as it's a gift for someone who likes them it turned out well. It was also easier than I thought it would be, which is always a bonus  Cheesy

Please excuse the quality of the pictures...my camera is pretty average.

It's actually really cheap acrylic yarn I bought at a dollar store, it came in heaps of colours and I was attracted to how bright it was.

Cheap yarn is great. A friend of mine got some gorgeous yarn for 50 cents a skein... and spent 40 dollars. I'm jealous. I need to go to the dollar store more often. Smiley

Oh, I like it!  The colors are a little bold, but if a person likes such bright colors, they'll like the dramatic stitch, too!  ^^

I know, the whole time I was knitting it I kept thinking...woah it's going to be bright. *laughs*
