colors of the evening sky at sunset~
I've had this yarn and this crazy idea
for a while~
my stash overflows you know-
and these skeins were calling my name.
Ombre Knitted Skirt
Fiesta yarns - La Boheme (2 skeins)
Pattern -- well, I made it up!
(a circle skirt, knitted in the round, gathered into an elastic waist at the top)
I did not enjoy knitting with this yarn.
But - I do love the way the colors blended together
After the skirt was finished~
each side was ruched and gathered
(kind of off center)
at the bottom.
I also ruched one area in the back of the skirt
on the right side.
The flower embellishments
were crafted from my never ending supply
of yarn scraps.
The ribbons were from my
(and you thought I had a fancy pattern!!)
the skirt has a loose open weave pattern-
(so I wear a beige skirt slip underneath)
easy, no pattern,
letting the yarn dictate the direction.
This skirt hangs beautifully~
the weight of the yarns helping to shape the lines
I'm thinking this skirt screams
