Do you ever dream of knitting?? I do, in fact, my dreams are where I get my best ideas! This latest project ( and bucket list item #31 ) is a knitted tutu, designed by yours truly and was featured in one of my dreams about a year ago. Every now and then my brain reminds me of this dream and nags at me to get working on it. I always had a reason not to until last week I finally I gave in and knit away to create what you see below.
I will also be offering the pattern for any knitters who want to try a fun project using ruffle yarn. First however, I need 5-10 knitters willing to test knit this pattern for me.
