I really loved this pattern. I used some Vanna's Choice from my stash just in case it went into the Pile of No Return. But, after knitting and knitting and knitting and then putting off sewing the buttons on for a month, it is finally finished! Hoorah. The Pattern comes from www.knitty.com.











I will definitely be making more of these! (after the new year, of course!)

I dream of a house covered with your art, and would love a personal swap. Pm me if you'd like to spread the crafty love! I also need blue fabric scraps for a scrap quilt!

Very pretty! I'm actually working on a knit skirt (for a friend) made of Vanna's Choice; coincidentally, it's also yellow. It's a different style, though; plain stockinette with embroidered embellishments, A-line shape and elastic waist. I'm afraid it will turn out too much like wearing a blanket. Sorry to bug you with questions, but is your skirt awfully warm? How does it hold its shape? What size needles did you use?

Thanks, and thanks for sharing your pictures!

Sempster,
Thank you! I think with the stockinette you'll be fairly safe. The Vanna's is wearable but, I think next time I'll use a wool blend so it'll drape a little better. I was a little disappointed but, it was sort of a test so -yeah.  So far, it's kept it's shape well. No stretching out or anything like that. You might want to make a simple lining for your skirt.
I haven't found that it's "too warm" but, I also wear leggings or tights or something underneath so that adds extra warmth. It isn't clingy, either so that probably affects how warm it feels.

Let's see, I believe I used size 6 or 8 circular needles. -sorry, I check my notes and I didn't put which size I used! beh. Hope that helps anyway! Good luck with your project!
