And finally, here are pictures of the finished Intolerable Cruelty:

Reading is sexy!

Kickin’ it

Love the way the color moves

I have worn this skirt three or four times now, and I feel like the sexiest thing on two legs every time I do. I love the way the patterning worked out, I love the wide ribbon in the back, I love the length and the way it clings to my curves…I really just adore this skirt. The only change I need to make is to tighten up the elastic a skosh, but that’s a quick and easy thing (if I ever get 5 spare minutes again).

One more angle for the road

    What is that yarn? It’s gorgeous!

    It is Cascade 220 Hand Dyed in the Red Paints colorway, and then the ruffle I did in LB Collection Superwash Merino in black, just for a little contrast (and by “for a little contrast” I mean “because I was pretty sure I would run out of the Red Paints”).

    The ribbon, incidentally, was part of the packaging from the Darth Vader fleecey blanket I got for my birthday. It’s this great heavy grosgrain and it was the perfect length. Upcycling FTW!

  • VERY stylish & chic!
