I finished Romantic Hand Knitsí An Affair to Remember just over a week ago, but Mr. Drop KickGrl (who also serves as Mr. Camera Man) was on duty.

I canít even begin to tell you how wonderful this project was.  It took three days to knit, and if you donít have a three year old, you may do it in less.  I changed the yarn to Knit Picks Main Line in Blueberry.  I used ten skeins, with some to spare, for the smallest size.  Actually, if you buy eleven skeins, youíll have enough left to make the High Society hat (which I think would be such a lovely pair).  I didnít change anything pattern wise, except I made mine just an inch shorter, but Iím 63″ tall.


But there is another picture on my blog.

This is so very cute! I love the idea of a knitted skirt but many of the one's that I've seen just haven't really clicked with me.  You're skirt looks great on you, congrats!

Beautiful!  I really like that.  That is such a great book.  There are a few things I want to knit from that book.  The skirt looks great.  Some knit skirts are a little too funky, but this one is classically, romantically beautiful.  Great work.

If all our life is but a dream, fantastic posing greed
Then we should feed our jewelry to the sea
For diamonds do appear to be
Just like broken glass to me.
