FO: Twize Skirt by Kemp/Cheryl
 
3 Attachment(s)
I wanted to knit this skirt for about a year now and finally got to it:thumbsup: The designer is our own Kemp aka Cheryl and DivaKnitting on Ravelry. I saw that skirt on her and on Scout52 and was hooked. I ordered the yarn and it sat still in my stash till now. Apparently, i had nothing to fear, since it was such a quick knit. It took me about a month with other projects on the way. On to the details:
Pattern: Twize Skirt by Cheryl ;)
Needles: 5.5mm
Yarn: SWTC Twize (worsted weight bamboo), very soft and lustrous. Great to knit with and not splitty at all despite the plied texture.
Size: Mine was actually M, but based on Cheryl's advice from last year, i knitted S and as you can see on the photos - it's not small on me at all, because bamboo is stretchy.ETA: I also made it shorter, because i'm..hm.. short. So i started the increases right after the decreases.
I found the buttons in an LYS in Haifa and decided that they are going to be on that skirt.

So, without further ado - me, my dog Tyra and the Twize skirt! Photographed near the Jerusalem Biblical Zoo.
