Fantasy vs. Reality

Fantasy:

I was looking through a magazine recently and saw a little project that caught my eye. (Project 18, crochet tunic in FC Easy Knitting Spring/Summer 2005 for those, and you know who you are, that are going to ask!) I thought it would look really cute on me. Great with a little pair of jeans or over my bathing suit. Sure it is crochet but I am a clever and crafty sort so I can learn. Really. How bad could it be??

Reality:

I have to make 72 of those darn flowers. Then I have to make 72 rectangles out of those flowers. Then I have to crochet those rectangles together to make the tunic. 72!! If I make 5 a day, it will only take me about 2 weeks to do it. In 6 days I have made a grand total of 5! At this rate I'll be done in time for Christmas. I don't even know if I enjoy making them enough to make 72.

Chris says it looks outdated.

Do you have a picture of this project? Don't listen to your husband as I am sure it will look beautiful on you when you're done. Then you can say "See, honey, how wonderful this tunic looks" : )!!
