Isobel

Happy Monday Dear Friends!  How about those Broncos?!?!  Ok, I just had to throw that in, because...well, that win was pretty darn awesome! 

I wore Chantelle the other day, and it reminded me how comfortable my knit skirts are.  It was just the incentive I needed to pull out Isobel and get her done now that all my "deadline" knitting is done...


I am so pleased with how it turned out!  The yarn became so amazingly soft after blocking too.




Isobel Skirt
Interweave Knits, winter 2010
yarn:  Takhi Yarns Milano
needles:  sz5 and sz7
(you can find my modifications here)



Next up is going to be this Noro yarn that I bought a year or so ago.  Hopefully it'll turn out to be this :)


And that's about all that's goin' on in my neck of the woods today.  Thanks for stopping by and for your sweet comments.  Sending you all a little Colorado Sunshine!

Sweet finish, Staci! The skirt is so pretty! I'm anxious to see the skirt that you make with that Noro yarn--oh my gosh, the colors are scrumptious!

It is so pretty! I wish it were cold enough for knits here, but we seem to be hanging out in the 70's these day!

Those knitty skirts are so cute.

And how about those Broncs? Can you believe it? That was an incredibly exciting game, and I hope we have another one just like it next week.

Being from Pittsburgh, I'm afraid I can't be nearly as enthusiastic about those Broncos as I am about your pretty skirt, Staci :) That really does look very comfortable!

Isobel is beautiful. Congrats on finish.

That NORO will make a great skirt.

Yep --- how 'bout them Broncos. I'm sure Pittsburgh didn't see THAT coming.

Wow, your knitting skirt is AMAZING! You are so talented... (I'm still in awe that you knitted that cute mini jumper + hanger that I won in your giveaway!)

Thanks for the lovely comment on my post today, happy new year Staci :)

VERY nice! Can't wait to see the Noro one done up too. The striping on that one is fab.

What a pretty skirt! The colors in the Noro yarn are gorgeous - can't wait to see it made up. The pattern doesn't look too difficult - wonder if I could get away with wearing my long underwear under one. :)
