Victory of the giant purple earthworms!
Here is the finished product.
This is flat-out adorable. Even my teenage daughter thinks this is one of the cutest things I've ever made. And cute in an oh-wow-I-gotta-have-that way, not an aww-doe-eyed-puppies kind of way. A quick knit with serious impact. The kind of piece you plan an outfit around (and I did). If I didn't have a shirt that went with this, I would have gone out and bought one. I love it!
Completely makes up for my Easter disappointment, and that's a lovely thing.
