Spring Sweatshirt


Using the same pattern as the Little Fox Sweatshirt (slightly changed the neckline).


I'm adding a strip of biding at the back neckline to make it look neat. I'm recycling the boys old pjs for this (I'm keeping the back of the tops). I'm still working out an easy way to do it but I'll get there! :p

I frogged my Aidez cardigan that I wasn't wearing much. I love this one!

Gorgeous shoulder line, very comfortable, I'll get a lot of wear out of it. I just love it! 


Little Fox Sweatshirt


Pattern: modified Burda 8042 (I used a favourite top to compare measurements and adapt the pattern)
Fabric: French terry, cotton ribbing and strip of recycled Tshirt

I've actually sewn a garment!!! After so many years, I can wear something I've sewn again. It's the best feeling ever (ok, in the grand scheme of things maybe not, but in my crafting life, it's a big deal!).
I've got to fiddle with the pattern a bit more to have the fit and finishing I'm after but I know I'm going to get a lot of wear out of it.

Tethys Shawl - aka Determination


Pattern: Thethys by Susanna IC, free 
Yarn: Bergère de France Sport (worsted weight), col Beaujolais, 6 balls-540m
Needles: 5,5mm, 6mm

Mods: see my Project page on Ravelry


I love this shawl, even if I had to start several times to have it just right... It's the perfect colour for me and it's really cosy for the aut-winter months. It's easy to wrap round and secure with a shawl pin.
