Sewing Sweaters and Talking Sewing & StyleThursday, January 30, 2014
Hello there! Yahoo, the end of the week is finally here and I believe it's the perfect time for you to all break out in a happy dance...I'll wait.....just a couple of things I wanted to share with you..
First off I was super excited to be asked by Erin of Seamstress Erin to participate in her series "Sewing & Style". If you'd like to read more about how I relate to the two and how I deal with my "all over the place" style take a look here. Thanks again Erin for asking me to take part!
In staying true to my "all over the place" style I made something a little different to what I usually wear. A funky sweater with some bad ass pleather accents. yeah! I've been wanting to work more with knits and because of this crazy cold weather my side of the United States I picked a chunky wool sweater knit to work with. If you've ever thought about sewing with sweater knits check out my post all about it on the Fabric Mart blog. There is really not anything to be scared of and I've included links to some great resources to help you along.
My TNT pattern challenge has started and I'm ready to start on muslin #4 of the Sewaholic Renfrew. Fingers crossed that this is it! I've think I've about got my list of potential TNT patterns all hashed out and ready to share with you all early next week.
What are you all working on? Have any of you ever sewn a sweater? Oh yeah and I'm so jealous of all you knitters out there knitting up your beautiful sweaters! Can I get a knitted sweater please? :)
