142,646 Stitch Skirt
About a month ago, I ranted about how thin American clothing is and how I couldn’t find a decent summer skirt at the store.

Well. I took matters into my own hands (literally) and knit this skirt. In four weeks. On US size 0 and 1 (or 1 1/2, depending on how you convert) needles. (That’s very itty-bitty tiny.) I used some yarn I bought from Elann in September 2005, and used 1/2″ elastic for the waistband. Total cost of the project came in at under $30.

Look! It skims the body. Skims! It’s not skin-tight!


It looks good when it’s moving.

Move, Skirt, Move!

And it’s the perfect length!

Perfect Length

Yes, indeed, I love this skirt. I can dress it up. I can dress it down. It’s work appropriate. And it’s done at a small gauge so it’s got a great hand.

The name? I kept track of how many stitches I knit and it was 142,646.

How He Sees Me
I suspect this is how Good Man sees me, even when I’m at my worst.
