Balwen Skirt finished - finally!

And finally, seven months after starting it, here is my Balwen skirt. I bought the fleece in 2008, finished spinning it over a year later and started knitting then. It blocked really well, and looks lovely though I don't think I'll be feeling cold when wearing it as it is so, so warm.
The fleece is rich in lanolin, and the texture quite stiff, so it's probably best for outergarments which will be well worn. One of the things I hate about knitted skirts is the way they sag round the behind, so I chose this pattern and yarn deliberately to avoid that. I think it will work out well.

So now onto the stole I'm knitting with some recycled Rowan Summer Fleece...
