Getting there!


Readers, thanks to all your encouragement I’m actually doing this! I really am getting on with the job of sewing up my knit projects!

Look at the photo evidence: this is Child 1’s long forgotten sweater that I put on my to do list yesterday and finally managed to complete today. And do you know what: it only had about an hour’s work left in it to do.

So I hope to get going while the going is good and finish that cardigan that started the whole thing soon enough. And  I promise there will be a “normal” sewing post soon – to contain the words “lingerie” and “culottes” both in one post! If that doesn’t intrigue you (more than sewing up sweaters …) then I don’t know what will! 😉

    That’s a great sweater – will it still fit? 😉

      Yes, it fits me and we are almost the same size, so that should be fine. Feels great it is done! 🙂

    Well done on the sewing of knitting. My knitting consists of scarves and beanies. Using circular needles. Thus avoiding any of the sewing-it-up-afterwards issues.
