So. Are you going to Yarndale this year? Last year I went as an exhibitor but this year I'll just be going as a visitor. I'm really looking forward to seeing round all the lovely things that I couldn't really see very well last year.
It must be almost a year ago that I decided to make some Granny squares as an edging round the bottom of a Boden cord skirt, to make it a bit longer. I made the squares, joined them and blocked the strip but it just didn't look right with the skirt.
The edging has lain in my bag ever since with the vague notion that some day I'd make it into a skirt. On my last trip to the hairdresser I called into my local wool shop first and bought the yarn I needed; it's Style Luxury DK which is 51% wool and 49% acrylic and the colour is Mink. At last I was able to get going on the skirt while my hair was being done.
This is how it is looking so far. I thought I would line it but then remembered that I have a brown merino wool slip that is perfect for wearing under the skirt.
I'm really hoping to have this finished very soon and I will wear it on the day I go to Yarndale. So. If you see someone wearing my crocheted skirt please stop and say hello. It will be me because no-one else would be crazy enough to wear it.
Hope to see you at Yarndale!
