I made some adjustments to the Tempting 2 pattern; I described it more fully in the Tempting 2 KAL. I used TLC Cotton Plus: my new favorite yarn.

I also made an adjustment to the Flirty Skirty pattern; it was only written for one size, and it wasn't my size. I used Wool-Ease, and was pleasantly surprised. It knitted up softer than I expected; it felt a bit scratchy in the skein. I made a belt to match, and just used a pin that was my mother-in-law's to secure it.

very cute. I have always wondered how knitted skirts 'wear' -- do they hold their shape, do they need to be reblocked after each wear? Keep us posted.

Here's the link for Flirty Skirty. I had to do some math to make it fit me. My hips are 42 inches, and I didn't want it to be skin-tight. As it's written, when it's stretched the hip size would be 41". But once I got the math figured out, it was super-easy!

I already commented on the top on the KAL page. The skirt is really cute. I like the little pleats at the bottom. You are really good at making changes work out. The fit is perfect.

I like Wool-Ease and use it for a lot of things. I have never used the TLC Cotton Plus. Is it about 50/50 cotton and acrylic? I'll have to check it out.

The skirt and top are really nice, great job. I love the skirt and my hips are about the same size, so I may just try the pattern. Another project in the for later pile.:)

Yes, it's 51% cotton, 49% acrylic. I love it so much, I just bought a bunch more off ebay. I can hardly wait to use it!

Christine, I too am in love with the Cotton TLC, that is what I am using for my Tempting. It is very soft to work with. (I have been hunting it down on ebay also.;) )
Once again, nice sweater and great skirt.
