For me, knitting and crocheting evolved from a hobby to an all-consuming passion (some would say obsession). Inspiration for my designs is drawn from all over the place, including past travels -- from Turkey to Kyrgyzstan and many places in between. I dream about wool during the long Canadian winters, often waking from my sleep with visions of knittin’s dancing in my head.
Things I never leave home without: Chris, my handsome traveling companion, a knitting project, trusty e-reader, and a picture of my slightly obese cat, Ivan.
This skirt works up so quickly, you could make a lollipop skirt in a different colour for every day of the week! The skirt is constructed to flare out in a bit of an A line to complement many figures.
You can wear this skirt with buttons to front, back, or side. I like to wear this skirt with leggings or tights, but you could easily add a lining or wear it over another skirt.
