Eunny finishes up the Linen Ensemble with the "Ashley" Skirt. This skirt uses pleats of linen yarn for beautiful drape with a lightweight Louet linen yarn that washes up beautifully.

Other pieces of the Louet Linen Ensemble include the Alicia corset, seen in episode 101, and the Lacey stole, seen in episode 103.

I want to make this skirt so bad. It's so beautiful, I just learned to knit in textiles class, halfway done a scarf and basically the instructions to this is more or less gibberish and confusing. Maybe one day. -sigh-

Garn Studios/Drops Designs (a yarn company in Norway) makes a beautiful 100% linen yarn that's beautiful, is the same weight as the Euroflax and costs half as much.  The Louet Euroflax costs from about $20 to to $26 for a 100 g. skein (yow, almost offensively expensive, I think) - Drops linen yarn is $6.10 for 50 g. (or, in other words, $12.20 for 100 g.)(you can get it at www.nordicmart.com).  I bought some for the first time, this summer, to make myself a summer sweater, and it's beautiful.  If you made that skirt in the Louet, the yarn would set you back more than $120 (and that's for just the SHORT skirt - more than $200 for the tapered.  The Drops Bomull Lin would still cost $72, still not cheap, but at least getting closer to the realm of possible.  

Knit Picks (www.knitpicks.com) has a linen blend yarn that's half the cost of the Drops, and only one quarter the cost of the Louet.  Their linen/cotton is a dk weight, so you'd have to watch your gauge, but it's only $6.60 per 100 g. And THEN the short skirt is less than $36 dollars.  I've never used the Knit Picks yarn, but one of my friends tried some and said it's lovely, that their cotton yarn is the nicest cotton she's ever knit with.

I absolutely Love this skirt, it is really incredable.  I want to make it, but just can't afford the yarn right now, Oh well, maybe later.
