Skirt Love

Does this girl need a tan or what?

Oh it's done! I finally pulled the two skirt panels from my completed pile and seamed it up two weekends ago. Yesterday I found the courage to put it on and wear it to work and got rave reviews from co-workers. I don't know about you guys but I always find it difficult to wear things that I've made but it's always nice when others appreciate your hard work. I love the drape of the yarn and the skirt itself is rather flattering. A word on the Twisted Sister Daktari yarn--it's lovely, handspun cotton, however the colour can be inconsistent. Two of the balls that I purchased had black spots all through it which showed up in my knitting. Luckily I had knit most it of it into the lace panels which helped in making it blend in a bit more. I considered exchanging the yarn but I had actually bought it in LA at the Knit Cafe last summer. The pattern is Lacy Skirt with Bows from Greetings from Knit Cafe . I would love to knit this again except with different yarn and in the round.
