Wow. I had no idea that my last post would elicit such a response. I am overwhelmed with your kind, sweet, thoughtful words! I knew how much you all "get" life. I also know, that you all know, that my life is not "perfect". Nobody's life is. However, everyone has a slice of perfect in every. single. day. It's all about finding the simple pleasure in the simple moments.
Then I decided that I actually DO like it buttoned. Hmm. The pattern calls for you to fold the collar over and fasten it underneath the other side. I omitted that.
Before I blocked it, I thought, wow. I just made myself a tutu. Seriously! It was sticking straight out, just like a tutu. But after blocking it settled down a bit and drapes nicely. Oh! And about that blocking. The yarn was absolutely one of the worst wet yarn smells EVER. It seriously stunk up our whole family room. However, once dried, the smell completely dissipated.
