very nice, good job.  It's a good way to use up ruined pantyhose too....

Sati~  I kind of haphazardly sewed the pieces to the band on my sewing machine.  You can actually see just a touch of white thread here and there because that's what my machine is currently threaded with.  The whole idea finally hit me at 3am the morning entries were accepted so I've been rushing to try and get this finished.  If I had more time, I would have used black thread for sure, maybe even the hose.  I bet it would work just fine, then the project is not only unconventional knitting, but a total reconstruction, too!

Jodi~  Wish I could say I made the top, too, but I bought it at a department store (I've had it a few years).  But thanks, I love it, too!   Grin

Actually, you can't see it too well in the pictures, but the white thing on my wrist is pantyhose, too.  I was doing some swatching to see how it worked up and test stitches.  I ended up sewing it together into a tube and it actually supports my wrist really well while I'm knitting.  I never knew how useful old pantyhose could be until this challenge!!

You are brilliant!  Prep time must have taken FOREVER!

Have you tested it?  Like in the bathtub or something?

Library Queen~  I thought about testing it...haven't yet, though.  I'll throw it on in the shower tomorrow and let you know!!  I'm guessing it should work out pretty well, though.
