I've had the worst cold this past week - terrible cough and so weak I couldn't even stand up and cross the room. It's finally fading and I thought I'd catch you up on my latest knitting adventure. I'm designing an entire wardrobe of clothes for my daughters' Groovy Girls (and mine now, since Dennis bought me a very cute one to cheer me up while I was sick. Yes, he IS the best!).
This particular ensemble is a one-of-a-kind creation since I pulled the yarn from my stash and used every last bit. The ball band was long gone, so I have no idea what this stuff was, but I do know it was some sort of novelty yarn one of the girls picked out last year when I first started knitting.
I made it in two pieces - a lace skirt with elastic waistband and a simple tube top with i-cord tie. I have some basic white yarn with a touch of silver sparkly thread that I think will make a nice capelet to go with this, and then Angelique will be ready for the ball!
