Elly’s 5 Tier Skirt

While watching the Golden Girls, May and Walsh, win their 3rd and final Olympic gold medal, I finished Elly’s skirt.

I love how it turned out.

The best part is the ruffle. It wasn’t in my original drawing. I was inspired to add it after looking through Nicky Epstein’s Knitting on the Edge book. I’m so glad I did.

Elly hasn’t been feeling herself due to a mild cold and lack of sleep, so she balked at my request that she pose for pictures while wearing a wool skirt in 90 degree heat.

Still I think she liked the fact that she could twirl in it.

Statistics:
Pattern – my own
Time Frame – 1.5 months
Yarn – Lovely Malabrigo and Claudia Hand painted yarn

So, should I knit Elly another skirt just like this one except in greens and blues or should I knit a skirt for myself in a dark chocolate brown? I can’t decide.
