Today's unseasonable and very soggy weather reminded me of this outfit. I was almost tempted to throw on a wool sweater in the middle of April. What is going on?!?
And what the heck happened to our beautiful Spring weather? I am really getting tired of the gray skies and the rain.
This garment will be getting a whole lot of wear towards the end of the year, but for now, I am much more interested in light colors and fabrics (even if the weather is not playing fair).
I sure do love a circle skirt, though! If I can find a suitable mid-weight wool in a beautiful color, I may just have to make myself another for next Winter.
The most irritating part was, you guessed it, evening out that darn hem. Even thick wool coating is not immune to the dreaded bias droop.
The sweater was a quick knit when I was in need of a portable project that would not require a lot of fuss, and one that I would be comfortable stopping and starting at a moment's notice.
It served its purpose quite well, and I may want to make another in a warm weather appropriate fiber. If the rainfall keeps up, I may finish my current knitting project soon and do just that!
