My Creative Space

I've been operating in slow gear here, not my usual self.
I have managed to finish my granny square skirt , inspired by the creative Sara from Tangled Happy and Michelle from The Royal Sisters. The stages can be seen here and here.

I joined the squares with dc, and the waistband is made of rows of hdc, the hem has hdc rows too followed by a simple sc, chain 3, skip one, sc, chain 3 ...pattern.

Sorry couldn't seem to rotate the photo.
Left side is actually the bottom.

This is another skirt I made. Probably shouldn't as my mind was not on the job. Don't know how many times I looked at the pattern before I cut and still managed to stuff it up. Fortunately I think I managed to overcome it.
It's the same pattern as an earlier wrap skirt I made. Still think I might need to tweak the back waistline.

And to top it all off we are now waiting for results for whooping cough for 2 out of my 3 kids. And my third is now sick and my husband too.I'm hoping it's very much not, but it's chronic in our area, even for kids like mine who have been vaccinated.... :(

  1. Your crochet wrap skirt is wonderful! I need to learn to crochet asap!!!

  2. Very clever skirt. I have not been brave enough yet to try a granny square project.

    Yeh whooping cough is rife here too. My son had it at 12months. Dreadful. I can really sympathise.

    Hope all the tests are clear

  3. love the crochet skirt, great work

  4. I love your crochet skirt! Good job!

  5. Beautiful skirts Trudi. I love the material you used for the wrap - looks great with the rest of your outfit too. Hope it's not whooping cough - definitely a dirty word around here because of Imogen's immunosuppressants - so frustrating that it's worked it's way back into being such a common illness.

  6. Lovely skirts - but poor all you with the illness! Hope you all recover swiftly!
