I knitted a purple skirt.
I'm so proud of myself being able to finish this knitting project with a satisfying result. I'd say I'm getting used to knitting! (I'm still just a seasonal and occasional knitter though.)
The pattern is from my favorite old knitting book "A/T creation-knit" from NIHON VOGUE-SHA Co., Ltd. (Unfortunately, the book has been out of print for ages...AND written in Japanese.)
The original version in the book is an ankle length-, hem fringed-, rather sporty- and tight brown skirt. As you can certainly see I shortened it quite a bit, but I knitted as exactly as the chart said except some minor executions and length.
It has a knitted body with a crochet hem with fringes.

I really like the color of the yarn. Isn't it nice!
**the raspberry colored hooded jumper is also one of my latest results. made of woolen jersy. pattern from anneeduex* (PDF), omitted front zip and front kangaroo pockets from the original. **
