Speed Stix Mini Dress Reviewed by Joanna Garrett on 2008-09-24 **
There are so many threads that have to be used at one time that after I made it, and I am an experienced knitter, I thought it rather too bulky. The weight of the dress pulls entirely too much on the neckline. I suggest one use less numbers of thread to carry along, make it to gauge and then wear a full slip as a liner. It is much nicer this way.
