confusion between what we have and what we are...

It's weird.  It's obtrusive.  It's a 50gm ball of fun-fur away from a feature on You Knit What??...

And it's my prom dress.




(the flash caused my blue shorts to show through, but they didn't in real life.)


Compare it to the MS Paint sketch I did two months ago.  I didn't do such a bad job making it resemble my vision, I guess.


For more shots, goofy prom pictures, discussion on my sloppy hair and complaints about the bad music, see my blog here.

At your request, there is now a pattern on pg. 3.

I love the way you did the back.  If I could have this in a tube top I would be the happiest lady in the world.

Great job! That must have taken some patience to knit and design! The back is very sexy and you look great in it.
