28 inches

That’s the current ‘width’ of the skirt. I need 32 inches. I feel like I’ve been knitting all day and got nowhere, this centre straight section is the skirt equivalent of second sleeve, or second sock. Then again I keep stopping to measure it every few rows, in the vain hope that 4 rows will miraculously become 6 inches (in reality 32 rows is about 6 inches). All this stopping to measure, all the sulking because it’s not big enough before restarting the next few rows makes for very slooooow going and is eating into some good knitting time.
Sleep now.
Tomorrow I will make 32 inches and start the decreases. Or die trying. No pictures as it looks hideous in all the ones I took with my phone, and I can’t remember where I put the camera.

Pattern love

I have fallen in love with a pattern. So much so, that, as well as knitting one from yarn in my stash (fingers crossed I have enough), I have ordered yarn to make 2 more.

It’s Lanesplitter, from Knitty, fall 2010. It’s just so bright and cheerful and will be toasty, well, as toasty as a knee length skirt can be. It also reminds me of a knitted skirt of my youth. My love has nothing to do with my current stripe obsession, honest.

Pictures soon.
