My first skirt!

I'm so excited.

Pattern: New Look 6843 view A

I'm a little embarrassed to have had to use a pattern for this skirt. It was a very easy shape and took less than an hour to do (including cutting time). I still need to hem it, but I think it came out great. It's light and skimmy and perfect for a spring skirt. This pattern will be used a few times.

In knitting news, I've completely abandoned the kid's cable pullover to knit some socks for Matt. These are coming along quickly and I hope to have them done by Wednesday so I can finish the pullover, so I can start Rusted Root. Whee.

Pattern is here.
Yarn is Regia crazy color 112

That skirt is the bomb! My sewing machine and I are not on speaking terms. I have several bags waiting for Lora to come back. Maybe she can patch things up with me and my sewing machine.
