I wore those rollers when I was a kid, too. But I would never go out with them. You put them in at night and sleep (uncomfortably) with them in and in the morning take them out and look fab the whole day. That's how you do it, people.
Yeah, I would never knit that. It's funny, but I have to many things that are a bit more useful to use time for a curler wig!
I'm not that enthused about Smock, either. It's alright, I guess.
