I am so excited. I finished what I think is my favorite pattern/item ever (and that's saying a lot since I've been knitting obsessively for about 5 years).
here is my lovely daughter equally excited.


more:


and with her brother:


thanks to Gudrun and Knitty for this amazing pattern. By the way, I used the Hempathy (the suggested yarn) and knitted the size 6. I made it longer, though, following the chart for size 10.

Amazing!!  I just started one of these last night.  I'm sizing it down for my 3-year-old daughter.  How many skeins did your's take?

Uh-oh - my 8 year old was looking over my shoulder and saw the skirt!  You did a fabulous job - it turned out quite nice - wish me luck as it seems that is also a task for me now!

We could learn a lot from crayons. Some are sharp, some are pretty and some are dull. Some have weird names, and all are different colors, but they all have to live in the same box.

thanks everyone!
cherry blossom, she came out of her room with the whole outfit assembled like that (we just picked up the shoes yesterday 2nd hand for $1.50!) we love it, too. oh, and we love the kids a lot as well!  Cheesy
MaddiesMom, if you have any questions, let me know...we also have a knitalong in this forum where we voiced a lot of our confusion (although the pattern really is simple and clear).

This looks great.  Good idea to make in longer.  Now she can wear it for a longer time.

That is adorable! (though, I fear, something I think looks so so so much better on her than a grown-up one would look on me).

It looks like a perfect first day of school outfit (not that I was the sort of kid that planned them out pretty much as soon as I got out of school in June).

isearchtobelost, on the knitty website the pattern is adapted for many sizes, and i think the skirt would be flattering on all figures. (most of us are more curvaceous than my 6-year-old!)
yumichan, i really thought the pattern was very clear and easy to follow. not really any difficult steps. it looks intimidating because there is a chart, but when you look it over, you see that the chart is simple to follow. there is a knitalong in the knitalong section where people would answer questions.
and yes, it's beautiful here most of the year, if you like the heat. judging by your avatar, you live somewhere chilly? also my husband is addicted to gardening like i am addicting to knitting!

Great job!  The skirt is gorgeous and so are your kids.  I really want to make this skirt so I'm trying to find a suitable girl (as I don't have one) or convince myself that it wouldn't look silly on an adult  Grin
