Q. I am a baby boomer, born with the bumpiest, knobbliest knees on the block. For years I've hidden them under trousers, waiting for longer skirts to come back. I don't mean ankle-length florals but the simple below-the-knee suit skirts that most of the women of my generation consider dowdy. Have longer skirts come back?
