I have tried to make something out of it twice before. The first time, I just decided I didn't like the pattern I'd chosen. And I was glad to frog it.
The second time, I loved the pattern (still do) but the gauge wasn't right. So after some time, I frogged it too.
This time, I have hit the jackpot! I decided to use this very special yarn to make a special something for me for my birthday. So for about 6 weeks before my birthday, I was quietly working away on this, which I called my birthday suit!
Pattern: Charlotte Skirt by Doris Chan, Interweave Crochet Summer 2010. I know! A crochet skirt! And it's not even the (19)70s! heh heh!
Hook: 4.5mm hook
Time: 30 September 2011 - 9 November 2011. Crochet really does go so fast!
1. How hard it is to find a plain black straight skirt to wear underneath! If I'd had time, I would have sewed a skirt. In fact, I probably could have sewed one in the time it took me to find this one at the shops!
3. Best not to store your yarn out on the coffee table, no matter how attractive it looks...because when you go to wind it some years later, this is the outcome:
I do love my lovely rosered swingy birthday suit skirt! And because I frogged a pre-2011 project to make this, I figure this counts as another Binding off 2011 challenge project done! Woohoo!
