OKAY! I know I posted already today...but I suddenly just had a lovely idea and had to share it. With um...absolutely nobody cuz nobody reads this. lol But still...here it is:

I'm going to make an ENTIRE outfit! I might have to use cheap yarn, but I don't think I will. lol It might cost a bit and take a bit, but I will get this done. Anyhow, the outfit will consist of a Lelah top customized for my belly, a Lelah skirt, and the Gwen-a-be Zim hat. All done in purple and white. I want to use Bamboo for the hat (as I've said before) except I think the purple they have will be too dark. So I think I might use the Debbie Bliss cotton DK (13) or maybe I'll just use the same yarn as I use for the top and skirt.

For those I plan on using Classic Elite Four Seaons in Violet (7656) and Violet Print (7654), I'd have to buy some white for the hat. But that's fine. The top and skirt will have the stockinette part done in the print and the lace part done in the solid. Anyway it's a cotton yarn, which means I won't have to worry about overheating! YAY! I think the whole thing would look too cute as an ensemble. ;) They all have ribbon and lace/eyelet patterns. Plus the hat would give me a chance to seperate the colors (so to speak) from the print.

This is probably a total of 13-14 balls of yarn. (I'm thinking 6 for the top, 5 for the skirt, 2 for the hat...plus one for good measure) Which will total me about $64.45. Actually. That's less than what I'm spending on my Cleaves. :( How sad is THAT? lol

Kitty's Story

Vintage 008

First, I must confess my name isn't Kitty, or anything even close. It just comes from an affinity for cats. Second, I love to craft, create, and imagine. I can draw a bit, knit a lot, and sew just enough to get by. My world revolves around the loves of my life; my three children. Anything more you want to know about me is on Ravelry or check me out on FB!
