There is a fantastic skirt in the new "Color" book by the lady who did the knit and purl stitch books. It's actually a whole suit, but the skirt struck me cause it is fair isle and looks like something I would actually wear.

No, I am not ashamed that I have a major crush on a man who dressed in tights and made faces for most of the 80's, and now plays a crippled drug addicted doctor...and is almost the same age as my father.

There's a nice kilt-style skirt (two lengths as well) in the October issue of the UK mag 'Simply Knitting' (I guess copyright issues mean I can't scan in the piccie :( ). Shame I'm still at the 'scarves and small things' stage of knitting. Plus I have hips, thighs and an ample derriere. I'd feel guilty about all those poor sheep losing their fleeces just to cover my curves. :D

Ha, don't feel bad Peev, I think they like to get rid of the extra baggage! I just read a really interesting fact about a particular type of sheep in Australia (I forget the name) that are very special and expensive to breed... it said they can actually die from the weight of their fleece if they aren't sheared. Can ya imagine!

I love kilts on men!

P.S. Never saw that UK magazine. Is it in bookstores or online?

P.S.S. Who's Edge?

at my local yarn shop a lady made one with fringes in layers for her granddaughter, it was so beautiful. I could imagine it in a nightclub or many places, this was for the beach, and she did so well, it shimmered and swished. If only I didnt have hips I would live in one.
