I’m talking about the launch of the Fireflies Rising Shawlette, my Aislinn cardigan progress and I’m pondering the idea of sewing some clothes.

What’s in the WIP?

Fireflies Rising Shawlette, the second design in the Dream Big Collection launched this week.

A huge thank you to my superstar test knitters Tinkhickman, Britt-MarieK, Candigirl429, Judiesgirl, JenwrenOZ, Jessieisskoopy and dambird.

Deb who is Tinkhickman on Ravelry has a lovely blog with lots and lots of knitting and creative news. She is giving away a copy of the Dream Big collection so please have a peek.

I’m really enjoying my Aislinn cardigan knit – am well underway with the back piece. My Rav Project page for Aislinn.

The Simple Life

I was inspired by Isabelle’s latest Fluffy Fibres podcast episode 13 to think about sewing clothes, not just for the girls but for me as well.

I delve into my stash and find some beauties.

  1. Your story about buying a pattern which turned out to be in French had me in giggles. I was in the exact, same position when one of the first dresses I made for myself was from a Japanese pattern book cos I love the dresses… but I don’t read or understand Japanese! I was a newbie so it took a lot of guess-work & head-scratching to make something. Can’t wait to see your creations!

  2. I’m just discovering your podcast and this one has really caught my attention. I like sewing and knitting, though sewing still is harder because it feels like another kind of way to handle fabric than knitting. I hope to have a handmade wardrobe one day, since I’m knitting I never buy sweaters any more, same with sewing, at first it were the simple skirts, I would find my self in the shop, looking at the finishing of the garnment and decide I could do that better. Now it’s more complicated stuff as well.

    • Welcome and thankyou! That is so great that you are on your way to a handmade wardrobe. I have a long way to go!
