The economy is bad but..........

What is a girl to do when she sees something as beautiful as these:



She buys them! That's what I did yesterday. I was minding my business,having a sister bonding day and there we are in the Macy's shoe dept and I see these beauties staring at me( yes I know that shoes have a hypnotic effect on me).these are Michael Kors and they just were so different from your usual summer sandals, very classy and elegant. To top it off they were 65% off, yes 65% PERCENT OFF!. so I picked up those bad boys and they're all mine......

Then I come home and realized what I did so I pick up my knitting and excitedly start working on my lacy dress because I have to to keep myself entertained so I don't go back and go on the hunt for more shoes. I don't know if I loving my lace work, but I don't like to quit so I'm going to give this another couple of rounds before I throw in the towel on this one. I have ripped this piece a couple of times but I 'm getting the hang of it and I do love the dress.

This is the start of the bodice part and I can't find to many knitters that have tried it. So it's hard to find help or ideas.
So let me know what ya 'll think about it.........

I SO don't get the shoe thing. But to each their own. If it makes you happy, I think you should have it.

The lace dress is looking good. I say keep at it. I'm going to show it to my aunt, who is an avid knitter and crocheter. She does a decent amount of lace work - though I think most of the lace she does is crochet, not knit. But I'll ask her if she has any advice for you.

The lacy dress is looking good. This project requires quite some patience and perseverance. What yarn are you using?
