Ellie in her Skirt

Ellie woke up and put her skirt on.  She says she loves it and isn’t taking it off all summer.  She has commented at length about the pretty patterning and the soft fit at the waist.  This pretty much sums it up.


She is the perfect person to knit for — so appreciative.  She even looked sad when I told her she would have to take it off tonight so I could finish and block it.  But, for today, she’s off to ballet with it on, and looking very happy.



Miles of stockinette.  Vicious, boring stockinette in clingy mohair.  All worth it.  Yes, indeed.
