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
" 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
)? 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!
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!
