I typically don't post finished objects that I make because I'm afraid they won't measure up to everybody else's skills, but here goes...
After about three days of doing mostly only crocheting, I finished this skirt last night. It's from the Caron web site, their "Open Work Skirt" pattern. It's my first garment ever, whether crocheted or knitted, and I'm so proud!!! I've knitted hats, shawls, scarves, legwarmers and handwarmers, but never a skirt, and only started a few rows for a sweater.
The best part about the skirt (besides that its done )? I was pretty nervous that I'd look very bulky in it because it uses worsted weight yarn and because I felt the fabric crocheted up a bit bulky, but actually, I don't think it looks too bad on me. It definitely needs a lining, though! :oops: It's not the greatest picture--there are snowflakes falling that blurred the picture. We're getting bombed here, and it's not looking like it's going to let up anytime soon.
Hope everybody had a fun new years!
