SIMPLICITY 8722 JUMPSUIT

June 29, 2021

When I saw @suechinglascelles version of this pattern, I knew I needed to make a version of my own immediately but then I saw the pattern cover and got worried. The Pattern: This pattern is Simplicities 8722 Costume pattern for some sort of uniform- is it Ghostbusters? I am not sure I got the reference SIMPLICITY 8722 JUMPSUIT

DEGEN SUMMER TANK PATTERN

June 16, 2021

I love my tanks from Arq (and undies too) and I really wish I felt good about nipples in public…. but I don’t so I essentially wanted to create a style that sort of felt like you’re wearing nothing except your Arq tank. So I set out to design the perfect summer tank with attributes DEGEN SUMMER TANK PATTERN

DEGEN ADULT EYES SWEATER PATTERN

June 15, 2021

Finally – what – took – me – so – long to make an adult eyes sweater pattern. As with the baby version I separated the eyes instructions from the sweater so that you can use the sweater as a base for your own color work and knitting adventures. Construction: I drafted the pattern on DEGEN ADULT EYES SWEATER PATTERN

BRIOCHE BUBBLE CREW PATTERN

May 2, 2021

I love the fit of a vintage sweatshirt. It draws in at the waist, it’s short and wide, the neck is somehow perfect. I wanted to make the perfect brioche sweater based on that classic fit. When I stopped in to my LYS Knit One Quilt Too in Barrington, RI I found the perfect yarn BRIOCHE BUBBLE CREW PATTERN

DEGEN EYES SWEATER PATTERN RELEASE

March 23, 2021

This pattern is sort of a what-took-me-so-long situation. I obviously just needed to sit down and write the pattern. I’m so glad I did because the hand knit version is even better than the original which is machine knit. The real thing that got me into it again was being excited about the yarn.

SEPTEMBER JACKET

March 6, 2021

Since my Arthur Pants post I made another pair in a deadstock Japanese 6oz (lightweight) denim that I found at Blackbird Fabrics and I might even have one more pair planned (I’ll let you know when I get the fabric). All of these high waisted pants inspired me to knit a sweater that could be SEPTEMBER JACKET

PARTIALLY MADE FLOWER QUILT

February 16, 2021

Just a short lil post on a quilt I finished but did not start: One day while mindlessly viewing stories on instagram, I came across Grace Rother selling off a quilt top. She would sell this quilt to a randomly selected person from the people who responded. I bought this quilt top which was basted PARTIALLY MADE FLOWER QUILT

QUILTED COLLARED JACKET

February 8, 2021

When I realized that I had ~mAyBe~ just enough fabric left after the plaid Arthur Pants I knew I needed to make a matching top so that I could be head to toe yellow plaid. I roughly laid out the pieces for the Ayora Jacket that I had made once before (with some mods which QUILTED COLLARED JACKET

ARTHUR PANTS

February 4, 2021

When you are on the fringes of the hand sewing and the making-garments-by-hand sewists communities you may notice trends in IT patterns. For knitting there was Fades, then Brioche, Shawls and Mystery Knit Alongs. While I am newer to the sewist community, I have also noticed some pattern trends. Everyone wants to make the best ARTHUR PANTS

FROG AND TOAD

January 23, 2021

If you knit, you are aware of this pattern of the adorable Frog and Toad by Frog and Cast who are the main characters in Arnold Lobel’s famous children’s books. Arnold Lobel wrote these books in 1976 at a time when featuring a same-gender couple was not common in children’s lit. As soon as I FROG AND TOAD
