Knitted Skirt Design Class with Carol Lansinger

My pal knit1frog2 and I took Carol’s great skirt class yesterday at
So Much Yarn

I have wanted to knit a skirt for quite a while, then I heard about this skirt class with words like:
“you should take this class before you knit a skirt”,
“now I *know* how to knit a skirt”,
“I love my skirt”.
See janetcharb’s skirts on Ravelry here and here, she brought them to a Seattle Knitters Guild meeting. They were gorgeous. I was smitten. She recommended Carol Lansinger’s class…

It’s a great class.
Carol talked about style. Style in fashion, personal style, designing and knitting style for yourself or others.
She talked about skirts. Knitting skirts, designing skirts, shaping skirts, FITTING skirts.
Knitting ‘butt sprung’*-free skirts.
She had many many samples, it was EXCITING.

*Carol’s term for that unflattering pouf you get in the back of your skirt after sitting.

Now I want to knit several skirts:
