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!

The first part is a guideline that was created to let clients know if knitting out their specific designs are even possible. Clients can read through these guidelines and adjust their designs as needed to meet these guidelines. sock mockup
