Wow that is a beautiful dress. 

One quick question, for the yarn detail did you sew with the yarn (ie needle threaded with yarn) or did you use thread to secure the yarn? 

By the way, I loved all the puns in your post too.

Holy shit! You made a dress with a yarn ziz zagy pattern, and it looks so couture. I don't think of the 70's or anything else that yarn and stuff brings to mind. What a fab contrast of textures you get, hope you win! You have to wear this somewhere fab, even if it just to walk around Hollywood and look important!

kjlutz, thanks a lutz for your support ( Wink). I used thread to secure the yarn. And would you believe I had exactly enough grey thread down to the inch to finish the grey rows? I gave myself a high five (which, to a passerby, probably looked like an everyday clap, but I know better).

zowiewoahie, thanks so much! I actually took this dress with me to the gas station to fill up and get an icee. Grin But no really, there was this old guy who looked baffled to see me there.  Cheesy

This is super awesome. I saw the poster for the Jo-ann competition and immediately thought of Craftster.  Smiley

I really love the trees on it, very striking.
