Devil Skirt
Here's what I've done so far on the skirt that started out with 774 cast ons. I've got 3 more rows of seed stitch, then plain stockinette until I get it the length I need. It's reduced down now to a manageable 258 stitches, which is still a lot, but better than what I started with. I'm using KP Telemark 100% Peruvian Highland Wool in Tidepool Heather on size 7, 60" circular needles and this pattern:

It's been 100 degrees here everyday for the past couple of days so working with this wool is done only with the air conditioning going

Oh I love it! I did that Bell Ruffle on my Red Aran Afghan last year!
It is fun to knit! This skirt pattern is ADORABLE! And a person could easily knit it a longer length...or shorter, I guess, too!

Thanks for including the link! I saved it in my Knitting Patterns folder!

I started out knitting it flat because of the sheer number of stitches...I was not able to join in the round without a twist or two. I'm going to have about a 2" seam at the bottom, but that's not going to show. I started over three times, but finally got it joined. I'm going to be doing some shaping and will eventually go down to probably a 47" circ or maybe smaller, I'm not sure yet. I'm only using the bottom part of that pattern because I liked the way it looked. I'm going to improvise with the rest. Just a little too short for an old woman, if you know what I mean Maybe if I were 30 years younger I'd wear it that short, but certainly not now.

Thanks, ArtLady! Your knitting is amazing. I wish I could crank out FOs as fast as you. I only have a couple of hours a day where I can knit so it takes me quite a while to get anything finished. But, I just enjoy the knitting...my job is extremely stressful and so knitting at lunch and when I get home helps me to relax.

Devil Skirt? Did I get diverted to another site? The one that came up, blue with a pretty border, would look great on my DIL.

It's really nice, thanks.

That is so much work. It sure is starting out with an adorable ruffley edge though.

That skirt is adorable! But 774 cast-on stitches??? I'm impressed with your determination. I love the color you chose. Can't wait to see the finished product.

That skirt is so cute I had to save the pdf file! I might try it, too but that is a ton of stitches to CO.

I live not far from you and it has been so uncomfortable here!!!! I have a two year old and we've been hitting the pool almost daily. It is really hot to be working with wool.
