I was so excited to show you – please excuse the mess in the background and the bit o’ belly!

The waistband was surprisingly painless – I roughly pinned the top edge leaving enough space for the elastic, then slip stitched it using Koigu. Then I shoved the elastic in using a safety pin (middle school family studies, you taught me well), sewed the ends together, and closed up the hole. There’s a bit of wonkiness in some of the hexagons – needs to be slightly reblocked.

Yayyyy!!! Better pictures soon, I promise!

    Better Pictures? Those are GORGEOUS! I love the skirt, and you’ve inspired me to make it (right after I make your cardigan). I love finding creative uses for Koigu. Is that the pattern from the last issue of Vogue, or did you make it up yourself?

    That is so cool! I was having a hard time visualizing what it was going to look like, but I really like it.

    It’s really gorgeous! It looks so much prettier – and more wearable – than the one in the magazine. Great work! :-)

    It’s fabulous! The picture of the full length one in VK was kind of scary but your mini skirt version is great. I’m tempted to make myself one.

    Wow — the skirt is gorgeous. I have never been tempted to knit a skirt before because the patterns I see always look a little “grandmaish/too homemadeish”, but your version is awesome. Too cute!

    That is one HOT skirt! Way to go, I am inspired to make one for myself. It looks like an A-line — is that true or is it more straight? I have a small waist but big hips — A-lines look great on me but straights are B-A-D.

    Supercute! I didn’t realize you were making a shorter version so I thought you had a lot more to do and then, voilĂ , it’s done and it looks great!

    Koigu love. Mmmm. And that safety pin technique has to be one of the most useful things I learned in school.

    That is fantastic. You took a pattern I had extreme doubts about and turned it into something spectacular.
