So i made this skirt out of the knitwit book.  I'm kind of on the fence about how i feel about it.  On one hand, i love the uniformity of the stitches and the green and purple contrast.  However, worsted wool does nothing flattering for the hips and thighs.  I feel a little strange wearing it but I'm so damn proud of it.    I'm considering frogging it and making it a purple cardigan with the fur on the cuffs....  What do you guys think?

I think it looks great!  And great on you, too.  There is nothing wrong with accenting your hips, they look good!

I gotta jump on the bandwagon here and say that you look great in that!  AND it's just plain cute.  I think the matching cardigan idea is great.  It would be an adorably edgy suit!

I love it! I would wear it. I just got a bunch of mossy green polypropylene, and I was thinking of making a skirt with it. I've got some dark purple fur... so maybe I'll make a reverse color version of this!
 It's awesome. I'm going to hit the "this rocks" button for you.
