Moment of Decision and another progress shot

I'm working on the skirt of this dress. You add stitches at evenly spaced points every so many rows. For my dress I'm instructed to knit an increase row 7 times - but here I am at only 4 increase rows and look how wide that skirt is getting. I believe I will stop here and just knit down. I'm wickedly short waisted and smaller on the bottom than the size of my top would call for on any ordinary fashion sloper.

Fewer increase rows mean less stockinette knitting to do and less weight overall - a consideration with Big Knitted Projects. On this last day of 2010 it will be interesting to see how many inches of skirt I can knit.

Of course - since it's finally warming up into the 50's AND it's sunny outside - I believe I shall plant those last 100 daffodil bulbs first.

2010 was the best year of my life and something tells me I ain't seen nothin' yet. Hope you are in the same place.


  1. What you have done so far is beautiful. Wish I could knit. Its going to be so pretty and warm.

  2. Oooh! It's turning out so beautifully! Wish I had your curves...I'm built like a box -- no bosom, no waist... :-(

  3. Thanks, guys. LOL, M, I wish those curves contained less volume! :-P
