Another Beginning

At The Loopy Ewe’s Spring Fling back in April, I fell in love with the idea of knitting a skirt when I saw the skirt that Claudia from Wollmeise was working on. I don’t know what possessed me because I’ve never considered knitting a skirt before — maybe it was Claudia’s beautiful Wollmeise yarn (which is distributed by The Loopy Ewe).

Anyway, I bought three skeins in a beautiful dark teal called Moses and have been eying it hungrily all summer. I finally knitted a swatch (7.5 stitches/inch; 11 rounds/inch) and came up with a plan for a wide pleated skirt. I cast on 242 stitches for the waist.

I have a lot of travel planned for the next couple of months, which will give me plenty of opportunity to knit. At 7.5 stitches/inch, this isn’t going to be a quick knit!
