My first machine-knitted garment!

Here is a pic of a simple skirt I did for my daughter on my Empisal KH680 –

Machine-knitted skirt - 5 ply Cleckheaton Baby Merino

I used two balls of red and two blue – 25g balls of Cleckheaton baby merino that I found at Spotlight for $2 a ball last winter.  It is VERY soft and drapes well and is not itchy.  Such a super-fast pattern – thanks to my friend Chantelle for the Empisal pattern book of skirts and pants.

The skirt was started at the bottom with a simple folded hem, then slowly decreased.  I did a simple bind-off and then sewed elastic into the waistband after I had sewn up the sides with mattress stitch.  The knitting of it took 2 hours and the sewing up, another hour.
