So, I finished vest #2.
Plan on getting photos as soon as it warms up a bit.  I foresee an unhappy model with temps in the 40's.  

I started this skirt for myself.  Call me crazy, but I would like to wear it on Thanksgiving day.
Brown tights.  Brown boots.  
Lunch with friends.  And this for dinner. 
Have a wonderful day.

  10. Oh, you are too quick! I cannot believe you've made three PT items, and my languishes on the needles as I find other "shiny objects." Love the idea of the skirt. I say "idea" because you wouldn't catch me dead in a knit skirt, but it's going to be oh-so-cute on you!

  39. Ooooh, I do like that skirt. Of course you can do it, just don't do anything else from now until D-day. Clean houses and fresh laundry are so over-rated.

  40. I love squash soups. They always are wonderfully filling (though I always feel like mine come out a little bland, so I'm still working on a good balance).

    The vest looks great! You get so much done. I can't imagine how you do it all!

  41. That is a great vest! I can't wait to see you modeling that pretty skirt!

  42. I'm sure the vest will be enough to induce a smile from your model. Pretty does that, don't cha know.

    You will, indeed, be rockin' that skirt by the holiday.
