I typically don't post finished objects that I make because I'm afraid they won't measure up to everybody else's skills, but here goes...

After about three days of doing mostly only crocheting, I finished this skirt last night. It's from the Caron web site, their "Open Work Skirt (http://www.caron.com/projects/shadows/sss_skirt.html)" pattern. It's my first garment ever, whether crocheted or knitted, and I'm so proud!!! I've knitted hats, shawls, scarves, legwarmers and handwarmers, but never a skirt, and only started a few rows for a sweater.

The best part about the skirt (besides that its done :wink: )? I was pretty nervous that I'd look very bulky in it because it uses worsted weight yarn and because I felt the fabric crocheted up a bit bulky, but actually, I don't think it looks too bad on me. It definitely needs a lining, though! :oops: It's not the greatest picture--there are snowflakes falling that blurred the picture. We're getting bombed here, and it's not looking like it's going to let up anytime soon.

Hope everybody had a fun new years!

Wow, that's beautiful! Thanks for sharing your work, as well as the location of the pattern. I've bookmarked it for my own evil purposes later :)!

Your work is excellent!! Take pride in what you make and don't let someone else tell you that it isn't good because they are just jealous of the fine work you have done.:cheering:

I think your skirt is beautiful. Well done.
As for not being up to scratch with other peoples projects . I think you underestimate yourself. :)

Great job, and it sounds like you worked it up quick! -- to me anyway!:)

Yes--definitely!!! For whatever reason, I'm intimidated to do knitted garments, but not crocheted garments (why would that be?). So I'm ready to plunge right into some new crocheted garment, although I don't know what it is yet.:teehee:
