The Ogee Lace Skirt

Ogee lace skirt.jpg

This is one of the projects I have no WIP pictures of at all. While I was knitting on the spiral boot socks from Interweave Knits summer number my daughter found the pictures of the Ogee lace skirt in it. I had some Rowan Linen Drape yarn that I found somewhat suitable, if I went down in needle size. Hanna is smaller than the smallest size, but on the other hand, Linen Drape is thinner than the suggested Rowan Bamboo Tape. I could even had gone down one size more, the blocking of the skirt made it bigger than I had calculated. But all in all I think it turned out pretty ok, and Hanna is pleased. The pattern was fun to knit, and not difficult at all.

The skirt is lovely as are the Chalet socks.

I think I may have to find a nice yarn and try my hand at the skirt. It certainly covers more than my current beach wrap.

Very cute!

That is very cute! Looks great on your daughter!

Tulipa hieno! Tuo on todella hauska asuste.

Very, very pretty, Maud. What a lovely gift for Hanna from her beloved mama. Maud, I will keep you updated on George's situation, and I'll be sure to share the finished pottery, too. The children are so excited about what they've made. They'll be *over the moon with delight* when all is said and done and they can *use them*. I am sending love and a big gentle hug along to you across the miles, my precious friend ((Maud))

Very nice!!

Very cute - this is on my to do list for my daughter.

Very cute! and in my favorite purple!

Lovely!! I really like this pattern, it looks so fun to knit :)

What a cute skirt! Almost makes me want to wear a swimsuit and need a cute skirt to cover up in!

That is GORGEOUS. I love the leafy lace pattern and the way your daughter is wearing it. Any chance of her having a future in fashion? :-)
