I've been looking for glove patterns because I got a new coat for this winter and I want to knit some gloves to go with it.
Anyway, in the process I also found this crocheted skirt pattern: Spiderweb Skirt
Good: It can be made with acrylic worsted-weight yarn, so not overly expensive or finicky, and look how neat it looks.
Bad: It's a whole stinkin' skirt! Am I crazy? (Wait, maybe I shouldn't be saying that when I'm in the middle of knitting a whole dress sort of thing with really, really thin yarn.)
In other patterns, these are very cute, but a little too cutesy for me, plus the pattern only comes in Finnish, and since I don't know Finnish I wouldn't be able to finish them...let alone start them. Oh quit groaning, I couldn't help it.
These are pretty...I have never knitted a sock in my life, not even a normal little plain sock:
I believe I'm suffering over-ambitious-knitting-fever. Otherwise known as OAKF.
