I was looking for a skirt pattern, and Knitty's was the prettiest I found.  I wanted something that would match a blue shirt I had, yet didn't require me buying more yarn.  Here's the result:

I'm pretty happy with it.  Nice and sassy.  ^_^

Oooooh, I like yours! That color gives the skirt a different feel. How'd you do the elongated stitch rows? I did this skirt last year, and I had to ask a few people what to do. I kind of wonder how other people figured it out.

My alarm clock still holds a grudge from the time I threw it at the wall

The elongated stitch rows were tricky; it took a visit to the Knitty forum to find out that the pattern was actually wrong.  Took me more than one frustrating row-ripping to figure out that it couldn't work as it was printed.  I thank the questioners who paved the way for the successful completion of this skirt, and also you all for your comments!  ^_^

I'm looking forward to making this skirt; I already have the yarn for it. I don't have very good google-fu, and even more terrible Knitty forum-fu. Could you let me know the errata to the pattern? Or link me to it somehow?

Sure thing.  The error is here (actual pattern directions):

row 5: *K1, double YO, rep from*
row 6: K the K sts and first wrap of YO, dropping the second wrap

And here is the clarification from Redyarn:  "For the drop stitch, on row 6 you're supposed to knit the knit stitches and drop BOTH yarn over wraps. So row 5 and 6 have the same number of stitches in them."

There also seems to be some confusion regarding the terminology of the picot point bind off.  I read this topic right after I read the previous, just so I'd know what to do when I got there.  Don't know if you'll have trouble, but might as well put this out there too.  According to sarebear100:

"Most of the time, when instructions say BO 1, this means 'knit two, slip the first over the second.' In other words, it is assumed that you will take two stitches to BO one stitch. HERE, however, BO just means 'slip one over.' So that's the first thing. When it says BO 1, just do the slipping and don't knit any more as part of that step. 

The next thing you have to do is 'knit on 2 new sts.' At this point you ALL of your sts are on the left needle and you must CAST ON two new sts onto your LEFT needle. You can use the cable cast-on or the knitted cast-on. I used the cable cast-on because I just preferred the look. It doesn't make much difference. "

Hope this helps.  It's really a fun knit!
