Time for a Springy Dress

After the last few weeks of snow, ice and daytime high temperatures in the teens, I'm ready for spring. According to my husband, we have received another 3-4 inches and it's supposed to snow for the next 18-24 hours. (I'm in Atlanta where it's a balmy 45 degrees.)

So, I do what I do everytime I'm at one of these cheerleading competitions and I'm bored.... I get online and buy stuff!!! First, I added to my knitting needle collection with an order to Knitpicks. And of course, I overbought to make sure I got the "free" shipping for orders over $45. (BTW, if they have a promotion for free shipping on orders of any size at the moment, do not tell me.)

Then, I purchased supplies for a new dress. I purchased a cute halter dress pattern from McCall's (free shipping and all patterns $6.99 through end of day today and some Kaufman fabric from fabrics.com. I'm picturing the black / pink polka dot for the main fabric and the pink will be the bodice lining. I may also make some pink piping. Cute, yes? Here's what it will look like:

oooh, very pretty!! Love the color combo!! Now with all your shopping, hop over to discountinuedyarns.com and grap some bamboo or silk for a pretty pink shawl to go over your shoulders!!
(sorry, I just bought a bag to make the claptosis so I'm all in the mood for pink bamboo, I'm not affiliated, only addicted)
