Yarns to Dye For in Frankfort, Illinois

I started another ruffle skirt for my great niece Luci. She requested pink and purple. I bought the ruffle yarn at the Knot just Knitting Retreat from Yarns to Dye For. It is Broadway by Euro Yarns. It has large holes so it seems to be much larger than the blue and green skirt.
5/30/13 This one I am putting 12 rows between the ruffles. The first ruffle I just purled in but because the holes in the yarn are larger it left a large gap in the row. The 2nd ruffle I added, I purled the fixation with the ruffle yarn and it seems to look much better. Although it probably won’t show in the end.
6/25/13 As soon as I get Luci’s waist measurement I will give it to her and get of picture of her wearing it.
6/30/13 Luci loved her skirt and it fit her perfectly. Another happy great niece. I only have 9 great nieces and 3 nieces under 7
