well done! its adorable on her. I definitely think blocking will completely smooth it out. I just ironed my under a damp cloth and it went perfectly smooth and flat. Cool that everyone is moving along so quickly. its kind of addictive and yes, once you get the to c/d the yarn overs make is so much faster.

looking forward to more finished skirts!

just finished it today after waiting and finally recieving more orange yarn in the mail. just a quick steam blocking and voila! She LOVES it, and so do I... Definitely a rewarding project.

Hello andreacs, tribe and elaineofshallot. welcome.

regarding the weaving; as i PATIENTLY wait for my extra yarn to come in the mail, i have little do but weave in the ends... it actually didn't take long, about 1/2 hour, and in the end its pretty tidy. At the outset, Elisha and I were lamenting having to do this and coming up with lots of strategies to avoid it, but it was not a big deal actually. I would think the problem with carrying the yarn down would be that when you get to the eyelet part, there is an eyelet right where the colors change and the vertical strands might show through through, unless you can tack them to the side around that section or something . its pretty open in those areas, and i had to be very careful when weaving to keep the strands hidden.

glad to have a few more knitters along for this!

UGH! i have 3 more rows and just ran out of orange yarn, yet i have a whole unused skein of yellow leftover. this is of course due to my own carelessness, no lets say exuberance!, when i wanted to keep going at the beginning while impatiently waiting for my CC 3 and 4 to come in the mail, and therefore moved to my 3rd stripe in my main color.

On the bright side, after calling every yarn store in a 20 mile radius (actually a fair number of them!) without success in finding good old hempathy 015, I just ordered 4 more skeins from yarnbow on ebay. Ill be moving over to the the circular shrug KAL with the extra skeins when this skirt is finished!

now i just have to keep to my mantra... I will wait patiently and not finish the skirt in yellow...I will wait patiently and not finish the skirt in yellow...I will wait patiently...

How is everyone coming along? I am really almost finished! I just completed my last stripe and just have to do the final border. I added an odd stripe at the beginning so i ended up with the border being not in my main color but in CC3. I'm hoping i have enough orange yarn to finish. When i finished my last green stripe I literally had about 6 inches of yarn to spare. phew!

here's hopefully my last in progress photo, showing the close call in vivid green...

Good luck everyone... I want to see pictures if anyone has any!

Hooray for Elisha!! Beautiful!

I'm closing in on the last 4 stripes...

hi yogamomma and banana anna...
glad you are joining us! its a lot of fun to make. Are you doing kids sizes or for yourselves? I'm probably just past half way making a size 6-8 so i'll be with you for a while... Check out yarnbow on Ebay for a pretty good price on the hempathy. that's where Elisha and I picked ours up...

Good luck!

Thanks for returning to us Gudrun!

I agree that making it longer will really make it last, especially with an elastic waist. Also i took a closer look at the photos on knitty and its actually clear that the waist is purl side out, so hopefully no one else will be confused. Just us--and Elisha and I tend to think alike (although i guess we did come to opposite conclusions on this point). I've gotton a zillion compliments on the work in progress so i'm showing everyone your pattern.

I would post a photo but its not changed much since my last picture. The eyelets are really nice!

oh Elisha-- are we going to have enough yarn? are your running low?
