Hip in Hemp from the summer knitty.  Only mine is Hip in Cotton, becuase I was too impatient to order yarn and my LYS didn't have the Hempathy.  I subbed Manos Cotton Stria, and fiddled with the pattern for my guage, which was surprisingly easy for a first time pattern-adjuster!




Not the best pic, but it looks perfect!  (Big bro couldn't stand not getting his picture taken too, lol)

Here's a close up:

I can't say enough good things about this pattern.  Clearly written easy to memorize and really easy to knit!  Gudrun was nice enough to expand the sizing on her blog all the way down to a size 2.

If all our life is but a dream, fantastic posing greed
Then we should feed our jewelry to the sea
For diamonds do appear to be
Just like broken glass to me.

SO SO CUTE...the skirt AND your kids! Grin  I think I might have to make one for my 2 yr. old niece now that it's been downsized.

Thanks for all the kind words!  I would totally recommend making this, it is soo cute and was a really fun knit.  I'd been in a knitting funk all summer, kept casting on, then ripping things out.  This totally cured it and I can't wait to cast on for something else!
