I decided this morning that for my next interview, I was going to wear a black knit dress. The issue with this? I am a pale girl with blue black hair, and would look a lil too goth to be taken seriously. So I decided to take a lesson from the Breakfast at Tiffany's era, and wear a brightly colored ascot to offset the black. I went stash diving and discovered that I had this 100% cotton yarn left over from a headband earlier in the year, and decided the color was perfect. I cast on three stitches, and then did some increasing and decreasing to make a leaf-like shape, and then did garter stitch for the main body. Another leaf-like appendage on the other end, and I was done. It only took about 40 minutes of knitting, and that's because I was being distracted by LB playing WoW.

Hopefully it makes me look professional enough to be taken seriously at my interview. :D
