Thanks everyone for your kind words. I've gotten a few PM's about how I did the ruffle so I thought I would post it here
I copied this from someone's blog awhile ago and for the life of me haven't been able to figure out who's since.
"To make one, knit into the front and back of every stitch, doubling your stitch count and providing a base for seed stitch with the k1, p1 look of the kfb. On the next row, knit the purls and purl the knits. Continue until you’ve got enough ruffle to please you. I bound off all in knit stitches because I like the look of the chain of stitches around the edge."
*Be aware that this uses a lot of yarn. My one inch of ruffle took an entire skein of Cotton tots.
