I’m done with my skirt! I’m very happy with how it turned out. It is based on the Simple Straight Skirt pattern from Churchmouse Yarns and Teas, though I took a lot of liberties with it. For one thing, I changed the hem to a garter stitch band. The pattern hem is a 2×2 rib,… Continue reading Simple Straight Skirt Done!
I have finished knitting the main part of my skirt – now for the finishing. I need to find or get some elastic for the waistband and sew that together, and I need to knit my pockets!
