I would like to knit a skirt. You know, kinda straight, mid-calf, not too tight and if possible in the round. I have considered just making it up, but I don't have alot of spare time right now to think it up. I've heard that knitting a skirt in the round can cause it to go kitty-wampus (twist). Does anyone have any good skirt patterns or ideas about them. Thanks.

Hi--I love your knitting blog, but for some reason, I cannot subscribe to it via Google Reader. When I try to enter the site information, I get subscribed to some blog about your mother. There doesn't seem to be an RSS or XML feed button on your site--only a Subscribe via Bloglines, which I don't have. Is there any way for you to diddle this so I can subscribe directly? I don't have Bloglines.

LOVE the pattern. I've actually knitted socks with the same yarn before. The yarn is soooo soft. I noticed the way the sock coloring layed out. Thanks for posting!
