Wife, Mummy, Nurse: Marian Skirts

Marian Skirts

In May, I went to the Maryland Sheep and Wool Festival. While there, I always go through All About Yarn's tent, since they often have discontinued yarn or yarn that does not sell from their shop for super cheap. They had Berroco vintage colors in the carousel colorway there. It was multicolored and perfect for toddler girls. I immediately knew what I would make with the yarn-matching skirts for my nieces. Yes, I became that person; the one who has to dress toddlers up to be matchy-matchy. The amusing thing is, I test knit this pattern 3+ years ago, when I was pregnant with Justin. It took FOREVER to finish it. This Christmas, I was able to finish two Marian skirts in less than half the time it took me to finish one skirt when test knitting it.

Update (26 January 2017 at 1240): There were some who were asking what the name of the pattern is. For those who want to know, you can find it here.

What do you think of matching children's clothes? What's on your needles? Join me at Ginny's Yarn Along.
