Things are finally getting done!
Specifically, my long personal nightmare of a skirt is finally finished! I’m dramatizing a little bit here, mostly for comic effect, but it seriously felt like I was knitting this darn thing for at least a year. Now, when I check my project page on Ravelry, it turns out I was actually working on it for slightly over a month, interspersed with two other projects. But trust me, it felt like a lot longer.
So how did it turn out? Well, I made it wider and longer than I really needed to, but that is actually not such a bad thing. It is nice and warm, and I think will be a nice warm addition for cool/cold weather. Which is a good thing, because I have this same yarn* in a different colorway, which is intended to make this same skirt again. Who knows, maybe this time I’ll actually follow the pattern?
*Why did I buy the same yarn twice? Because it was on a really good sale in the clearance bin at http://www.yarn.com . If you hurry, they probably still have some – they seem to be having a heck of a time getting rid of it. I think it’s nice yarn, it has a good texture, good fiber mix, and knits up nice and tweedy.
