Question on my skirty. Here's a poorly lit/flash pic of where I am so far...



How long to you guys usually make your skirt portion? I was looking through projects on ravelry and just can't decide. And do you think I should trim the skirt in the brown yarn for a few rows? I was thinking that might "bring in" the brown a bit more.
It's turning out so girly I can't wait to see dd in it. I never dress her in skirts! She has a few hanna dresses, but she wears the pants under them and they're not super girly.

On a side note, this project made me remember how much I HATE my denise needles. Ugh. I'm constantly having to move the bunched up stitches around the needles.

Good Morning ladies. Big birthday weekend here and lots of company. My biggest big boy turns 9 today WOW!!!! 9 years ago at this moment I was en route to the hospital in full blown labor....for my very first time. *sigh* where does the time go? It was a super fun weekend though

And....I knit a waist band this weekend! I scrapped it though LOL, cuz I got stuck and didn't know what to do next

I am on my way to my knitting class in about an hour. I will be way ahead heehee, thanks to knitting help .com

I hope y'all had a good weekend. I bet I missed alot of your pretty work. I need to go try to catch up.

I do my skirts 1-2 inches below the soaker. And I really like trim on the edges of my skirts.

Thanks. I was afraid you would say that LOL I'm so ready to be done with all these stitches and see how the ruffles lay.
