what's going on

So, I finished vest #2.
Plan on getting photos as soon as it warms up a bit.  I foresee an unhappy model with temps in the 40's.  
I started this skirt for myself.  Call me crazy, but I would like to wear it on Thanksgiving day.
Brown tights.  Brown boots.  
Lunch with friends.  And this for dinner. 
Have a wonderful day.

I think you can do it. I have faith...

The vest is beautiful, the skirt for yourself...amazing! Definitely rock it on Thanksgiving with the tights and boots. And thanks for the link to the bisque. It's soup and bisque time and I'm always in need of a good recipe! :)

Ashley said...

What a cool skirt! I can't wait to see it. You seem pretty speedy and dedicated, I bet you'll get it done. Good luck.

Elizabeth said...

I would call you crazy...but I suspect if anyone can finish this in time it's you. The latest vest looks terrific!

amanda said...

I know you can do it! It will look fantastic with brown boots and tights. Can we have a peek at the boots? You always do brill boots!
looking forward to seeing the vest modelled too. :)

Jane said...

Oh, you are too quick! I cannot believe you've made three PT items, and my languishes on the needles as I find other "shiny objects." Love the idea of the skirt. I say "idea" because you wouldn't catch me dead in a knit skirt, but it's going to be oh-so-cute on you!

Kristyn Knits said...

alphonse said...

I love the green skirt - it'll be perfect - good luck - and the squash soup looks yummy!

Terrye said...

I've wanted to knit a skirt for some time but never saw one I really liked. This one is quite nice!

sewstylish said...

How great. I have a feeling you will get it done in plenty of time. I'm frantically knitting up my first ever sweater to wear on Thanksgiving but not sure it will get done in time. I may need to pick a smaller project. Can't wait to see the skirt done.The color is fantastic.

At Home Mommy Knits said...

Cute skirt!! That pattern book has some great patterns.

Can't wait to see the finished vest pics.

I'm not sure how many women could pull that skirt off, but you definitely could! It's adorable.

lucy said...

Yes, your dress plan will look fantastic. I can see it already!

peaknits said...

The skirt will be gorgeous with the tights and boots - but what for a top? Inquiring minds have to knomw!:) And the vest is wonderful too - do you knit in your sleep? So many fabulous projects!

sue said...

I really like that vest too. The skirt looks beautiful so far, and I love the green.

I love the way the skirt is looking so far. It is going to look great on you!

MadMad said...

If anyone can do it, you can! It'll look great, I'm sure! I, in case you were interested, am just about to cast on my last armhole in vest #1! It's so darned cute - thanks for the great idea!

Denise said...

Oooh boy, you better get knitting gal - can't wait to see you in that skirt. And can't wait for modeled shots of the vest, it looks great.
I have two more gifts to knit then I'm back to knitting for me (read: pleasure)!!

I know you can do it and look really, really cute in it!! Yummy recipe - who cares that it's hot here, I want to make it!

Estella said...

Love the color you've chosen for the skirt. Can't wait to see it.

Hege said...

When you said 'call me crazy', I thought you were referring to the temperature. Not for one second did I think you meant speed-wise. You'll have it done in no time! And it will look adorable!

TD wool design said...

you'll be done before thanksgiving, i'm positive! knit on!
love the color of that vest.

The A.D.D. Knitter said...

Leslie, now you KNOW that you'll be done with that skirt lickety-split!!

The soup looks heavenly:) I love this time of the year...

Hilary said...

Ooooh, the skirt will be fabulous!

::Sylvia:: said...

I'm so in love with your blog! I'm posting about your toast/toasty wristwarmers on Blissfully Domestic's Creative Bliss channel on Nov. 14 @ 11:00 if that's ok with you! :)

Poshyarns said...

Ooooh, I do like that skirt. Of course you can do it, just don't do anything else from now until D-day. Clean houses and fresh laundry are so over-rated.

Seanna Lea said...

I love squash soups. They always are wonderfully filling (though I always feel like mine come out a little bland, so I'm still working on a good balance).

The vest looks great! You get so much done. I can't imagine how you do it all!

tiennie said...

That is a great vest! I can't wait to see you modeling that pretty skirt!

La Cabeza Grande said...

I'm sure the vest will be enough to induce a smile from your model. Pretty does that, don't cha know.

You will, indeed, be rockin' that skirt by the holiday.

radioactive girl said...

What a cute skirt! I can't wait to see when it is finished!
