Late night haiku

Before sleep, enjoy
Moon rising through clouds and trees
Large, bright peacefulness

Silk Garden Skirt

Silk Garden Skirt

Size 8 (5mm) needles, one skein Noro Silk Garden

CO 72 sts, place marker for beginning of round. Work in round in k2p2 rib for 1.5" (note: my actual knitting was not this precise, this is an estimate you can fiddle around with.) Next round, k1, kfb, p2 around, for a total of 90 sts. Work in k2p3 rib for 1.5". Next round, k1, kfb, p3 around. Work in k2p4 rib for 1.5". 108 sts.  Next round, k1, kfb, p4 around. Continue in k2p5 rib until running low on yarn or at desired length. 126 sts. You could continue increasing and use more yarn if you wanted to make a longer skirt. This is a pretty simple recipe for a skirt, the only semi clever thing is how to do the increase without it being obvious.
