here is proof:

this is what was left of my green ball after the last green section...

well, i am just making it with the yarn - something i probably should have thought about before i jumped into the extension! but each color has come out with just enough. it's looking great - i am so excited to finish it!

oh right, yes, i agree about the pattern. i have moved into the size 10 chart and it is working fine. i see that we have to repeat a whole cycle of colors to get back to the MC for the finale...this is definitely going to be long enough!

incidentally, optimism, what is the painting that is your avatar? i love it. looks familiar, too....

it looks great, optimism! (and especially sharp with the help of that new camera). i really, really love the colors you chose.
so i am facing a small dilemma...i am in my final c section (that sounds like something else) and i am just not sure if the skirt will be long enough. (by the way, i seem to have 41 stitches between each marker?!?) i have counted that there will be an additional 7 rows after the chart...but, hmmm...will that make the skirt long enough to last many many years?

 i love the fall color/brown boot idea...i think that will look great with this pattern. when i finish the one for my daughter, maybe i will start a skirt for me.
here she is today:

 on the right by the needle, you can see the 'lacy' scalloped part that my daughter LOVES.

Hi Gudrun!
i love this pattern! it is so well-organized and -written, clear and fun. I am now in the c/d section, so it is going really quickly. i am actually surprised at how fast the skirt is knitting up. i am making the size 6 for my daughter. i'll keep you posted.

i love it! (nice lawn)
i think the colors are beautiful, and your knitting looks perfect!
funny you should mention the waistband because i puzzled over this for about 15 minutes...it didn't seem at all clear to me from the pattern which side should face out. it sounded a bit more like the purl side would be out, because why else would we be asked to purl those first 10 rows? well, in the end i decided that i would simply choose, and i chose purl out...wait, i'll go snap my progress...

i just started the first c row...it is really quick because in the place of making a stitch is a yarn over...
i am wondering, though, if i am half finished...because the skirt doesn't seem very long...but i guess i could read ahead to figure this out.

I really love how it turned out, too. I had a big scare today because I was so excited to send it to my friend that I didn't wait for her to get back to me with her address, and I looked them up online. There was an address listed, so I sent it. Then she called to give me her address which was completely different!  Shocked
So I searched for that and found it is the place where her husband works...phew!
As far as buying the book...I have made about 20 things from this book which is way more than any other book or magazine I have ever gotten. I find the designs to be really appealing, realistic and just challenging enough.

I have a progress photo.
it's moving along, thanks to an emergency tutoring session with optimism.

It's difficult to see the pattern emerging...so far I don't really see the waves at all. Just a bit of bunching where I hope/assume the waves will drop down.
I loved the elastic joining part, knowing that there will be no sewing and seaming in the end.
And the yarn is really nice to work with.
