i saw this pretty little skirt in the winter '05 interweave knits (http://www.interweave.com/images/imagesknit/img_knit_backissue/toc_win05/goredskirt.jpg
) ... it looks so sleek and classy. it had gores to make it wider at the bottom and looked the sort to be worn with a nice white shirt to work.
i changed the yarn & colors and got this crazy thing instead:
it turned out SO nicely. i'm quite proud
the waist shot is to show the finishing at the top. i changed it a wee bit and have a new love of i-chords. heh. the large gores are pink and the small ones are fuchia, if you can't tell.
i used karaoke (soy silk/wool blend) and it's now my new fav yarn. it's warm like wool, but has just enough silk to have a little bit more drape. i taught it as a class at the store where i work and none of my students used the same yarn. one cotton/acryillic, one 100% acryllic, and one wool/mohair blend. i can't wait to see them when they're done. woo!
