Hi there! It’s been a while. We’re back from our summer vacation and the weather is finally cooling down enough for me to be able to use my sewing room again. (The drawbacks of having a very light space…) I did get some sewing done, though!
Today I’m sharing one of my most recent makes plus one make that was finished two years ago but never got any blog time.
Congrats to Ros and Joy!!!
You are the winners of the giveaway!
Ros, you’ll get a copy of KNIT NORO 2, and Joy, you’ll receive a copy of 60 Quick Knitted Toys!
The lovely folks over at Sterling Publishing will get in touch with you soon, to send you the books. Have lots of fun knitting!
Thanks everyone for your lovely comments!
Have a great week everyone!
Stay in touch!
WINTER IS COMING.
…or, as those of you eagerly awaiting the Game Of Thrones Season 7 start tonight know: Winter has come.
To be prepared, I’ve checked out some cool knitting books for you! And I teamed up with the lovely folks over at Sterling Publishing to giveaway a copy of each book! (As always – all opinions are my own! My reviews are completely honest and I only giveaway products that I genuinely love.)
Let’s have a look!
KNIT NORO: ACCESSORIES 2
As mentioned in the previous post, here’s another version of the Alice Top from SEW OVER IT’s new online class.
This time I used a lightweight jersey with a black and white owl print. Adorable, right? I’ve talked a bit about the online class and the construction of the pattern in the previous post. So if you want to know more about the pattern and the class, you can read about it here.
These are all the adjustments I made:
A few weeks ago, I got to try out the new SEW OVER IT online class ‘Intro to Sewing with Knit Fabrics’. (As always, all opinions are my own!) I’ve never really made use of online courses before. I bought a couple on Craftsy ages ago but never actually made anything from it.
When the lovely ladies over at SEW OVER IT approached me, I immediately wanted to try after getting a glimpse at the patterns included in the class. I love their work and most of my favourite patterns are from SEW OVER IT. The Alice Top, with a faux bow front, was incredibly tempting! (There’s another pattern included, the Emma dress, which looks lovely, but I haven’t tried it yet.)
