So I found a half done afghan bedspread weight thread ruffly 1930's blanket at a thrift store.  The original maker couldn't keep the tension even so I took it apart and sorted all the hexes and decided what I could do with the three sizes of hexes.  This is one of the things I have made thus far.  I have also made three size 5 kid shirts and one adult small shirt.  I still have enough hexes to make 1 more skirt and 1 more shirt both adult sizes.  what do you think   I am happy with it and I am happy with the skirt and think it looks real nice on.
Update
there is no lining on the skirt that is just the slip I picked for the day.  I don't like to line skirts that way I have the option of color change.  I wanted graphic patterns that day.  If I want just soft color I would have picked a pink, white, or ecru slip.










this is the large and small size there is one in between too


this is the adult shirt I made took a photo this morning

Beautiful skirt!  It'd look really good with some black high-heeled boots, probably with a rounded toe and skinny two-three inch heels.

Oh, it's just kittens.

I want to leave this world the way I came into it:  naked, screaming, and covered in someone else's blood.
