Skirt, done.

As mentioned in my last post, the “simple straight skirt” I had knit last year was too big.  I started another one, two sizes smaller, using Cascade 220 Heathers in a purpley colourway.  It was a quick knit, even with my limited knitting time.

I didn’t change anything from the pattern, just a smaller size.  I love how it turned out and it fits perfectly!  I am itching to start another one!

I have a couple of hats to knit first, then I’ll start another skirt.  Or perhaps the same skirt but the ribbed version which also looks very cute.

The skirts!

The skirts!

As noted in my previous post, the photo on the left is when I originally made the skirt in December last year.  It fit me okay, maybe a little big.  The middle photo is the skirt when I tried it on a couple of weeks ago.  And the photo on the right is the new skirt and me!
