before photo and a couple a pictures of me wearing it on Saturday. If you click on the photo here, it will take you to Flickr where I wrote a brief description of how I did the alteration. When I thought about altering it, I went to the forum on Etsy to ask the advice of people who crochet. Everyone seemed to have strong feelings about it one way or another, and having a conversation with other people about the process while I was doing it made it a lot of fun. Here is the link to the interaction on the forum. It is really a generous and talented group of people at Etsy. So I wore this on Saturday at a leadership seminar where John C. Maxwell was the keynote speaker (that will have to be another post) and got a lot of compliments. People even stopped me on Sunday to tell me how darling I looked on Saturday. Yay!
