Okay, just one skirt. My Winter Wonderland Isobel:
Small side project-- always great for morale when you're working on something big. I got a sweet new camera and my old camera case is a bit too small so I decided to knit one. My first try was this:
Here's a close-up of the cool wicker stitch:
It goes like this-- with multiple of 13 sts:
Right twist-- skip one stitch, k second stitch tbl, knit first stitch and remove both stitches from left needle.
Left twist-- skip one stitch, p second stitch, p first stitch, remove both stitches from left needle.
RS: K1, work right twist four times.
WS: P1, work left twist four times.
SO EASY! I worked it with a 4-st purl border on either side.
I'm also going to "line" it with another layer of fingering weight knitting. But probably not tonight. My eyes hurt.
