Cast on 42 stitches for the waistband and knit in 1 by 1 ribbing until it fits you. Then, pick up stitches along one side. Divide the number of stitches you have (I had 260) by 4 and mark 4 increase points. Increase every 6 rows three times, then every tenth row until the skirt is done. I'm about 20 inches from being done. It's slow but steady knitting, and I can't wait to have my finished skirt to wear!
I've been working on some other fun projects, too. This pretty purple shawl is in a lovely yarn - Hemp 6 - with a lot of drape. Edda crocheted a flower to add a little extra charm.
I'm especially excited about this last shawl - it's for my future daughter-in-law! My son is getting married at the end of December and they asked me to make something to help keep the beautiful bride warm. I wound up asking Betsy to help me with the edging, and she did a great job. It's Kidsilk Haze on size 9 needles. The pattern is called Purity.
