The Hush Dress is Done!!

The Hush, Hush dress from Knitty is done!! Finally! I needed to have it done to wear to a knitting class that I teach on Fridays - so here it is. And I actually love it!! It is not blocked, yet. I was so over this project at the end, I was worried that I would hate it, but it fits, its flattering - the first photo is of it on the floor before wearing. The second is the dress after a long day of knitting, work, dinner and drinks out! So it was worth all the effort and the re-knitting! And I would say to buy the one pound cone of yarn - my dress is a small, so there was a bunch of yardage left, but there were only three ends to weave. (And now I will take a cue from Stella and try the leftover yarn on socks!) Done, Done, Done!! Now I am making only small projects for a bit....

Happy Knitting!!
