Its been a while………….. about 8 months!
I did quite a lot of sewing in the summer but didn’t do any blogging about it, my sewing tailed off in the autumn and then a crazy period of Christmas present sewing resulted in 4 cosmetic/pen cases, glasses case, 2 hot water bottle covers and a Kimono style dressing gown in Liberty cotton lawn. None of which I took any photos of!!
Another reason the sewing took a backseat was I got my knitting mojo back (its been lost for a very long time) I knitted a chunky sweater, 2 bobble hats and then I discovered knitting socks ! I have made 5 pairs so far!
Knitted using circular needles, great for TV knitting. After knitting with super chunky on large needles, knitting with tiny circular needles felt a bit like knitting with cocktail sticks.
If you want to try sock knitting, I recommend watching Tina of Simply Stitches on YouTube she uses the Unapologetic Knitter Vanilla Sock pattern which is a free download and converts it very easily to knitting on a circular needle.
But what to do with the left-over yarn?
My Liberty hexagon quilt has been getting some love recently, I got it out after Christmas, as a sofa sewing project.
I currently have on the sewing table a pinafore dress in grey corduroy. The pattern is Simplicity 1252 which I have made before
I am waiting for a zip to arrive in the post but meantime I can’t decide whether to add pockets or not.
