That looks great! I hate weaving in ends.

Ok, I don't have much time left of the nap, so I'm not going to fuss around trying to get my image to work...

Here a link:


I can't wait to get more done, I'm having fun with this one.  The pattern is so well written and easy to memorize.  I've been in a knitting funk all summer, this is the first thing I've been able to stick with!  Thanks Gudrun!

Nice to see a few more of you have joined this KAL! Yes I agree about weaving in ends...bit of a pain I know...but as pointed out the yarn being carried could show through at the yarn-over portion...you could obviously carry to that point then have tails? I did opt for weaving all and I made three of these skirts (including one in adult size)!! (I survived)
I'm so glad that the pattern is proving easy to follow (the technical editor at Knitty helped with that and improved upon the chart I gave her).
Looking forward to more images!

Count me in!  I just placed my order online for the Hempathy.  As soon as it arrives I will start it for my 8 year old daughter - hopefully she can wear it her first day of school in late August!  I'll keep you posted on the progress!  She and I are both quite excited!!!

We could learn a lot from crayons. Some are sharp, some are pretty and some are dull. Some have weird names, and all are different colors, but they all have to live in the same box.

Aww thanks!  I'm usually totally color impaired, I ALWAYS have to ask for help, but these ones just jumped out at me.  I can't wait to see it on my daughter!

But, I'm a little concerned...my fabric seems a little, um, pucker-y for lack of a better word...have any of you had this problem...do you think it will block out?  I'm worried maybe I'm knitting too tight.  Huh

weaving--I guess I will stop carrying when I get to the eyelets section. Carrying has been a pain anyways.

I am doing the size 2 so it is going pretty fast, I am just 4 sections away from the eyelets and decided to inc to a 4 stripe instead of 3 stripe to give it some more length for longer wear.

The colors (dont know the technical names) deep blue, grey blue, dark purple, sage/mint. I wasn't sure when i saw the balls next to each other if it would look ok but the colors blend beautifully together.

Since I always seem to have so many wip's I put it down yesterday to do some other knitting but will get back to it today. I want the girls to wear the skirts when their daddy comes home from deployment!
