This was a pleasure to knit, thanks in part to all who contribute to this blog. Your input urged me to knit this and your sugessted changes guided me down my own path of perfection. So, without further adieu, the following are the modifications I made - I think you'll recognize most of them ; )
Needle size - suggested needle (size 6) gave me stitches that were not quite tight enough, so I took it down a size. The guage wasn't perfect, but it was close enough. The Stockinette Portion of this skirt is about 15". The length the pattern suggested was too racey for the polished Boston IP firm that greatly contributes to the support of my fiber addiction. The Lace Section is worked using only the first 40 rows, which perfectly complimented the length of stockinette and allows the hem to just flirt with bottom of my knee. Also in the lace section, as so many have suggested, I used the sssk instead of sl 1, k2tog, psso. In the Ruffle Section ... I substituted knit rounds (rows 1 and 11) instead of purl rounds. Finally, I elected to do a traditional bind off, as the release date of Harry Potter loomed close by.
