I've had the idea for awhile now to make an ugly Christmas sweater dress...and finally I had a party to go to.  So, I started this at the beginning of the month and knit like crazy to get done in time!







Derby Stripe!!


I used sparkly fun fur for the snowflakes and Christmas trees.


I added lights to the Christmas trees and pipe cleaner candy canes.

Great work!
And what an awesome job of only taking a month (less than!) to knit it up.
Well done.

Not ugly ... a bit busy maybe, but not ugly.
