Black cruelty

Hello,
I'm Laetitia from France (Paris!). I fell in love with Intolerable Cruelty as soon as I saw it. I'm also a bit worried about the sagging effect of a knitted skirt, especially in bamboo. Nevermind, I have the exact amount of bamboo in my stash. So I have to knit that skirt!



I couldn't wait to start it: here is the begginning. Mine is gonna be black with a mauve velvet ribbon to suit a Rowan bolero I'm currently knitting.

Bonjour Laetitia,

C'est formidable deja! J'ai une question..est-ce que la laine pour ta jupe est l'original Bamboo de South Western Trading Company ou un autre?

Tu l'as achete via l'internet ou directement dans un magazin?

J'ai vraiment des difficultees de trouver la laine ici en Espagne et si tu pourrais me donner un peu d'information ca m'aidait beaucoup?

Amities de l'Espagne,

Bettina

Bonjour Bettina,

j'avais acheté le bambou de SWTC par internet pour faire le lotus blossom tank d'Interweave Knit. Finalement je n'avais plus envie de le faire...

Par contre, en France, c'est introuvable. J'ai une amie qui a remplacé par le bamboo de Filati, acheté à Paris. Il y a aussi du bambou chez Anny Blatt, mais il est trop gros.

Amitiés
Laetitia

Laetitia, this is a beautiful color, and I think she will look ravishing with the bolero!! Congrats on being the 1st to begin; we can learn from you as you go. Do you think lining the skirt would help with the sag factor?

Hi Laetitia,

This is Ashley Moncrief, who wrote the pattern. Velma contacted me about this knitalong, so I thought I would check it out. About your concern about sagging: The pattern calls for a smaller gauge than what is recommended for the yarn, specifically to help eliminate the sagging effect of some knitted skirts. If you stick to the gauge called for, I really don't think you'll have a problem.
