Check out this free pattern at Elann. It would be okay even for those of us who aren't size 2!

shimmered and swished

now THAT sounds good. ahhhh I remember the days I used to wear stuff like that!

Ok, so I don't follow rock bands so much. Actually I never did.
But U2 is not bad. (I thought that WAS Peev!) :rollseyes: (Really) Ha.

Oh Yvonne, yeah I love that skirt! I think that's included in my first post... (whoops, no it's not but I have seen that skirt....) I am just so not ready to begin another lace project. I just finished my first one ever, a shrug in Interweave Magazine that was relatively easy lace, and it took forever it seems. My digital camera got lost (or stolen) so I can't post a picture of it til I get another one. Come to think of it though, I really want to make that skirt..... just not now. It would be beautiful for not too freezing weather. hmmmmmmm :thinking:

The elann skirt is stunning! I'm in love

I wonder if it'll be hard to make; I know it says "intermediate" for the skill level but I haven't really figured out how skilled "intermediate" really is

It's definitely high on my "projects to make"-list though so it seems I need to look into my finances and see if I can find that particular type of yarn in Holland aswell. *sigh*

I've only been back on the list for like 3 days and I'm already trying to decide if not eating for a week or two so I can buy yarn will be an option

Yes, I definitely would.. especially that Elann skirt.. <drooling>

Surely upping the sizing wouldn't be that hard..


I've looked at the rollerskating one off Knitty too..

Once I drop to a size 14/16 (aus) then knitted skirts are on!

Hmmmm, I was just looking at that pattern to see exactly how HARD it really is.

It definitely will take a LOT OF CONCENTRATION!

Does anyone know, what's the difference between YO and YF?

I mean, if you bring the yarn forward then when you knit the next stitch it's just like a yarn over isn't it? Time to do some research....

not that I"m going to make this skirt right now! Wouldn't it be a beautiful Christmas skirt though? ! (especially if you could afford to do it not in the rayon/cotton they have the pattern in but say a silk blend....)
