Knitting = Me Time
Slow Scarfing

Carnaby skirt


I finished my skirt! I rather like it!



And because the cold weather is never going to stop, I've even happy opportunities to wear it.



It's a good fit, but does stretch a bit. I'm planning to reinforce the waist with grosgrain ribbon, or pick up stitches and do a waistband and add an elastic.



The tweed yarn is perfect. It's not very soft, but it's sturdy and firm. It's a cone from the back catalogue of my stash and I still have enough left for a sweater.


And I know I was pessimistic about ever getting this done. And to that I say:



We will ignore the fact that I finished it weeks ago, had to sew the buttons on 3 times to get the fit right and am just blogging about it now.

Love it! Love the whole outfit, looks great. Did I miss you posting the pattern? I'd like to attempt, although I knit at a snail's pace

That is pretty fabulous. I am most impressed. Well done.

Looks great! Love your shawl too!

Oh man, that looks amazing!! I just spent yesterday going down the Rav rabbit hole of knitted skirts and shorts, and I am clearly going to have to cave soon. This looks gorgeous on you and the fit is wonderful! Totally worth all the endurance it took to get the finish, in my opinion.

I LOVE that skirt. You have insprired me to look at making a skirt myself.

so adorable! and the skirt is nice too! :-)

It looks like a great fit; beautiful skirt!

Lovely skirt - and fabulous scarf - what is that pattern?

Oh wow, this is such a great outfit. I looove your skirt, super buttons and fit. But your boots and shawl are awesome too. Maybe you should hope that winter doesn't end because you are rocking that style (I'm just kidding about the winter, sending spring warmth to you!)
