A Micro-Mini Skirt





The Sasha skirt is turning out to be a fun knit. I've just started the pattern on the underskirt. I've got a long ways to go, but it is a faster knit than I thought it would be.

The hardest part was threading the elastic into the enclosure, and then sewing the elastic together. I really hope to have this done by the time the weather gets cold! I'm looking forward to wearing it over snug warm tights in the winter. It'll be a spot of cheerful color in an otherwise gray season. That, or I'll static-cling myself to death.

In other news, I'm not too happy with the progress on the homespun shawl. The pattern is Sari Silk Crescent Shawl, which is gorgeous in the photo ... but not meant for a thick heavy yarn. So I don't know what I'll do with it now.




Meh. 

Don't forget to stop by Tamis Amis for Work-in-Progress Wednesday!

  2. If the shawl is MEH than you'll have to rip. The yarn is much too pretty for something you won't be happy with. Love the skirt pattern!
