All the pretty flowers....

Pattern: Indigo Ripples Skirt - IK Spring 2007
Needles: US 7 / 4.5 mm
Yarn: Brown Sheep Cotton Fleece in Pink
Mods: None.

I love how it turned out, but it's a bit too big. I have to keep that waist band tied tight to keep the skirt up and still it has a tendency to ride down. I might have to throw it in the dryer full heat - has anyone dried brown sheep cotton fleece before? Tumble dry style? Will it shrink? Even if it doesn't, I'll still wear it. I'll just have to buy cuter underpants.

Incidentally - spring is in full bloom. Welcome to Colorado.

That's so pretty! I love that you did it in pink, and it really looks cute with your boots. I don't have any experience drying cotton, so I'm no help there. But even if you can't get it to shrink, it still looks good on you as is!

That skirt looks so fantastic on you! I don't think it looks too big but if you don't like the fit, I hope you got the dryer to shrink it a bit!

The skirt is beautiful on you! Unfortunately, I have no experience with drying Cotton Fleece either...

P.S. Your garden (and Cherry) look fab!
