This is knitting up pretty easily with minimal wth moments .. and of course some self inflicted aw craps as well lol .. missed the cluster stitches on the 12th row twice but there is no way I'm gonna fix that .. all in all I'm extremely pleased with the yarn (wish it wasn't discontinued) and the pattern is easy .. so far .. let's see when decreases for shaping start lol

Much better .. the holes are there .. just hard to see in one pattern repeat .. as usual .. I knit to gauge :D .. now fest swatch for other then I'll definitely make up my mind .. but this one seems to be the definite leader

A few years ago I bought some yarn at knitpicks that is just so soft and a gorgeous shade of green. I've been waiting for just the right pattern for this yarn to speak to me. Course with my luck, two spoke to me LOL. One's a summer sweater and one's for fall. Mind you, it's winter now, but by the time its done, it'll prolly be spring.
Since I did this in acrylic yarn, the edges rolled, even with it being blocked and steamed. I just need to go digging in my sewing room for bling for it.
Gina said that this design would flap around Ghia's hips with her moving around and suggested that I knit a belt and use blingy fasteners sewn on to secure the belt ... awesome idea Gina!! Thanx

I found this on Cheap Easy Eats on facebook.
To make this, you'll need:
2 crescent roll tubes
1 LB ground beef (or ground turkey)
1 packet of taco seasoning
1 1/2 cups grated cheddar cheese
Lay out the two tubes of crescent pastry, thick sides in. Use some of the left over crescent rolls to to make the center a bit thicker.
Brown beef and add taco seasoning.
Lay beef in a circle inside of the laid out crescent rolls
Add cheese to the top
Pull over crescent rolls and tuck in under meat and cheese.
Add cheese, lettuce, tomato, black olives, sour cream or whatever you desire for your tacos, in the middle.
Follow cook time on the pack of crescent rolls, and once it's done, you're good to go. Easy, cheap, and yummy!

this on Ravely and i couldn't reis making this for Ghia. Easy Peasy to make - hardest part (and that was mostly on my hands)was the increasing for the ruffles. Im thinking the front will knit up just as quick as the back. I cant wait to finish this and ship it off to Jenn :)
