I love this skirt!???????????????????????????????Habu Textiles Kit A-84

It drapes and moves beautifully and feels fantastic.


???????????????????????????????border knit with a single of mohair/silk

The pattern calls for a drawstring at the waist, but I added a studded skinny belt instead.
The skirt is knit with two yarns held together; it comes on one cone of a-1 tsumugi silk and one cone of a-32 silk mohair, with no knots.???????????????????????????????

I met squiffyknits at Madrona and she gave me The Best Advice:

Mark every decrease as you knit.

I would have LOST MY MIND if I had had to try to find and count the 47 decreases on each panel of this tweedy mohairy knit!

I ran a light colored thread through the edges before soaking so it would be easier to put in the blocking wires when it was all dark wet silk and mohair.
I made a template for the pieces to simplify blocking.
I used two blocking wires at the hem, one through the main fabric (two yarns held together) and a second wire through the mohair/silk single border.

    Non ho capito: ma è Windows nel senso che ha dentro Windows e ci gira la roba che gira su Windows… oppure non ci gira niente? Se fosse un Windows futazoninne insomma le App non ti servono perché ovviamente ci gira già qualsiasi cosa, no?Simone
