Achievement Unlocked: Kiltie

I finished my Kiltie! I hadn’t read any of the notes on the patterns on Ravelry, but I should have, because my Kiltie turned out way to big. Way to big. So I learned how to steek and cut some side paneling out of each side of the skirt, and it fit much better. I added elastic to the waist to help keep it up, and perfection! These are my second favorite knee-high boots, after the brown ones. They’re not as waterproof as the brown ones, so they don’t work in the snow as well. The shawl is my Catkin, and yes, it’s the same color red as my skirt. Red and grey are definitely the themes of this outfit. I mostly added the shawl to make this outfit closer to 25% handmade, but I think it fits well with the over all color scheme. My Catkin is in worsted weight wool, and is enormous. The original called for sock weight, but it’s definitely warm!
