I’ve been finishing things so quickly around here lately (one of the benefits of being unemployed) that I don’t believe I ever had the chance to mention I was working on this skirt. And now it’s done!

Pattern: Carnaby Skirt from Knitty
Yarn: Knit Picks Wool of the Andes, 5.5 skeins in Hollyberry
Needles: US 6/4 mm KP Options
Mods: I apparently can’t read, so my wedges don’t have the purl rows and I didn’t do the garter hem around the bottom, so I just did a couple rows of crochet.

I absolutely adore the buttons I used for this. They’re super sparkly. I love silver. The problem was that I only had four so the top two are just plain black buttons. I figured those two will almost always be covered up by my shirt, so it’ll be fine.

This was a super fun knit and it kept me entertained all the way through it. It came out a titch too big but I crocheted a chain to weave through the top and it fits just fine. I can’t wait for the weather to get cooler–this skirt will look great with tights, boots, and a blouse.

In more life-related knitting, I sold my first pair of shark mittens of the season yesterday on Etsy. I dyed up some yarn and am currently knitting them up. Tis the season, so get ready to see lots of sharks on the blog. I certainly won’t complain–I could do with the income.
