A Happy Hip In Hemper!

I've had several emails from people saying they are knitting my 'Hip In Hemp" design but here is the first completed skirt that I have received pictures of. This came from someone who documented her progress on Crafster. Her and her sister-in-law made the skirt simultaneously for their respective daughters. It looks great in a longer length (she decided to knit the size 8 but give it the size 10 length) and I love the colour combination too. I'm so excited to see my design and pattern fully realized by someone else (as I wipe my brow in relief that the pattern made sense and didn't have any math errors).
Hope to get some pictures from others so I can have a little gallery of this design in all it's various interpretations.

Hi! Thank you for making such gorgeous designs! They are really such a treat! My friend and I who are knitting obsessed would like to purchase a couple of your patterns, but are unclear as how to do so. Please, if you have a moment to spare between the homeschooling (been there) and the art making (am still there) could you forward us the info! Thanks! email contact is richterborow@msn.com peace!!

Hi Syndi,
thanks for stopping by my blog. I have a son too and I knit lots of things for him (mostly dress-up clothes so far) and plan to design and knit more for him (and other wee boys out there) and the males in general!
happy knitting
Gudrun
