Fully Dressed

The Bikini Girls followed my directions. I present to you the first Dress Girl. Don’t you love the demure neckline and the red strappy shoes?

I’ve heard talk of a line of prom dresses for spring, so I’ll keep you posted.

I treated myself to a new cell phone this weekend. I love it, but it looked . . . well . . . kind of naked. Almost like a bikini girl without the bikini.

I hated the thought of this pretty-in-pink naked phone thrashing around in the bottom of my bag with keys, coins, and other nonsense items scratching and clawing at it.

So I made it a sock. A cell phone sock. Don’t you love the demure neckline and the sleek, body-hugging silhouette?

It was pure luck. I cast on 18 stitches in my tried-to-remember-how-to-do-it-like-a-toe-up-sock-figure-8 cast on (don’t think it’s right, but it worked) and just knit my little heart out magic loop style. Two strands of Knitpicks Cadena on US 10 (6 mm) circulars. Purled a round when it was tall enough, knit one more round and then bound off. Voila. Fit like a glove. No swatching. No frogging. Easy peasy lemon squeezy. Amazing.

    The parents of the Bikini Girls should be very proud. We seem to have some future fashion designers there!

    Nice new phone and I love the cozy!

    Forgive me, but “lemon squeezy” reminds me of Led Zeppelin. And those flowy sleeves remind me of Stevie Nicks. It’s like a classic rock Tuesday, I guess.

    Those girls have talent! So do you :). I can’t believe it fit on the first try…I’m so not worthy!!!

    I do think you should have used a silvery faux fur…you would *never* miss it in your purse!
