Giveaway Winner and My Knitted Skirt

Thank you to everyone who entered my 100-100 giveaway. Now it is time to announce the winner. Into the mini tophat went all the names....

And the winner is.... Brooksie! Please email your address and your choice of pattern from my shop to purlsofthepast@live.ca :)
I haven't done an outfit post for a while since it has been too cold to wear any cute outfits. Sweaters and trousers are nice but they don't make for very exciting posts. But today after months of knitting I finished my skirt. It took me a while since I could never find time to knit, but since I have started to knit after dinner and at night in front of the TV I have gotten a lot done!
The skirt is a little shorter than I would have preferred (ew knees!) and not overly flattering, but it is my first major knitting project and I am very proud of it :)
Skirt: Knitted by me!
Top: Smart Set
Stockings: The Bay with a seam added by me (tutorial coming soon!)
Shoes: Softmoc (they aren't the prettiest shoes but they are very comfy!)
That's All.
