second week MMM13
short update on Me-Made-May 13
I have been sick most of the week, no going to work or donning clever self-made outfits. I have been lounging in various handknit items though - nothing better than handknit socks to make you feel better!
i did manage to catch a couple of breaths at the fresh air and have some outfits to share from before i got sick!
mystery day 1 from last week,
sporting a breezy cardigan, pattern by Hannah Fettig. a very comfy and cool cardigan, but be warned, this is knit with lace weight yarn on 4.5mm needles - it does take some time and patience to finish! i do love it totally!
mysteryday 2 from last week,
sporting no.2 drape pants from Drape, Drape by Hisako Sato. This is a very fascinating book, full of patterns utilising the drape of - mainly knit - fabrics and by folding and draping them to get interesting draping garments. i made the no.2 drape pants - still a rather simple garment - and totally love them! they are extremely comfy and still look classy enough to wear them to work!
after getting this book and realising it is mainly about knitfabrics i enrolled in the craftsyclass "sewing with knits" by Meg McElwee. This is a very nice way to get started with sewing knits, Meg McElwee gives you a lot of tips on what to pay attention to, what kind of supplies are important etc.
so that was my, not very successful, MMM13- week 2, now off to bed again and back to drinking masses of tea and hoping that this terrible cold finally passes!
