Lanesplitter Skirt

Another “I will never knit…” crossed off my list. I have learned not to say I will never knit something, because eventually I will. I used to say I’d never knit a skirt. Now I have.

It seems appropriate for my year of knitting dangerously though. The lanesplitter skirt from knitty.com is appealing in its diagonal stripes and noro. I chose Noro Aya, a cotton/silk/wool blend so that I could wear it in the summer. The skirt is as soft as butter. I have to admit I am considering a winter version too, would work with tall boots and stockings. But, so much to knit so little time!

  

Another item I said I’d never knit is a bag. I also have an aversion to felting. So guess what I am doing next?
