It looks fantastic!!! I bought that book solely because of the skirt pattern but I haven't worked up the courage to make it yet. Is it very difficult?

I haven't lined it. The knit is pretty tight, and I guess I haven't decided if I want to yet or not. Thanks for all the compliments. Thewench- If you go to the store let me know if you like it. I would be very curious to know what the store is like.

I don't know when I can go but when I do I'll take pictures and send them your way. Smiley

The pattern wasn't too hard, but it was a lot of work. Making the lace panels is what took the longest. Also, working the waist band and the band above the lace at the bottom was kind of hard because there were lots of yarn overs and the yarn was really tight on the needles and basically my hands got sore working on it. I definitely got some hand cramps from this one, but I don't see any reason why anyone shouldn't do it. The reward is so great!

Love this skirt!  Good job!  This item is on my (very long) list of things to knit!  Did you use the recommended yarn or did you sub?

Love it!  I bought the book (Amazon had a sale so it only ran $8 or so) for this pattern in particular.  Hopefully, someday I'll actually get around to making it.

I subbed the yarn. I just used Sugar and cream cotton in softly taupe and then a ribbon yarn I found at the store that had similar taupe and brown colors for the bows. I even got the yarn in the super sized balls on sale. The skirt ended up being right around $25 for the yarn and extra needle I needed to buy. I was happy with that price  Smiley
