I have been pondering another pattern that could be done with the same yarn--the Luminarie Skirt. It's lace entrelac, and I have been wanting to try entrelac--but I have never knitted a skirt or even worn a knitted skirt, for that matter. I love the warm honey color of the yarn, and I was thinking maybe to line the skirt in a blush colored fabric...I saw several women wearing pretty lace or embellished skirts at the museum last Sunday, but I am worried it's a fine line between "Oooh, awesome lacy skirt" and "Wow, you are wearing a doily." What do you think? Opinions?

I have started the Decimal Cardigan, a cotton cardi in Knitty, with an eyelet rib pattern and bell sleeves, with Knit Picks Simply Cotton Sport (a 100% organic cotton yarn that is really nice) in a ginger color. My problem is that I started it on February 26th and I have a swatch and about 4 rows of the ribbing done. When I have time to knit, other things beg to be worked on, but not this one. If I don't like it enough to work on it, will I actually wear it? I suppose I should have taken it as a bad sign that I didn't like the pattern at all until I saw one on Ravelry in the yarn I am using. Here's my swatch, so you can see the color.
