Granny Square Challenge - The Skirt Reveal

Hellooo! Well, shock horror, would you believe it, I missed last week's Granny Square Challenge! Truth be told, I was absolutely shattered after completing a huge work project (of the non-crochet variety) which had taken most of my time for two-three weeks, and the Challenge completely eluded me!

Anyway, you are now long overdue a proper reveal for my Granny Square Skirt, which I finished two weeks ago, and which several of you have kindly asked to see worn.

So, without further ado, I give you... the Granny Square Skirt!




I must say, it took me a while to warm to this skirt. It was a bit stiff to begin with, and it didn't help that in the first pics we took of them, I absolutely hated the look of me. But having worn it a few times, I find that the stitches are beginning to loosen up a bit. Unfortunately (but very predictably indeed), so is the waistband, so I am really going to have to sew in a piece of elastic inside it. For now, I am making do with a bit of ribbon passed through the top row just underneath the waistband, just so that my bottom suddenly doesn't find itself unduly exposed...

Anyway, I am now very pleased with my new skirt, which I have found can also double up as a poncho, although I am hoping I won't need to use it as such, should spring be willing to come (and stay). Yay, I can't wait for spring! :)

Thanks for reading, peeps, and as usual, don't forget to go have a gander here for more Granny Square love.

See you next week! :)
