February Garment

You’d think I could sew more in one month than this poncho but whatever!

I’m really digging this little number. The Popover Poncho by April Rhodes, too cute!…

I picked up this fabric on sale at Fabricland. It was exactly what I was after for this project. IMG_2914

It was supposed to have this bias binding from the neck fabric, navy jersey knit, around the bottom edge but in the end I just decided to serge and turn up the hem.IMG_2913

Love the cute pocket. It was fun to fussy cut the pattern I wanted.IMG_2916

Always fun to try something new. I opted for the grommet eyelets for a more professional look instead of doing buttonholes. It was super easy!IMG_2923IMG_2924IMG_2926IMG_2928

Love…IMG_3033IMG_3036

Also, love the friends that helped/hindered my sewing progress…IMG_3034IMG_2911IMG_2912

March will be some summer dresses. I’m feeling the stress of getting them ready for July so I need to make a start.

 

Woodstock Fleece Festival

I know this is a bit late but I wanted to share a few moments from the Woodstock Fleece and Fibre festival a few weekends ago. It’s a large show at the fair grounds with a ton of exhibits and animal demonstrations.

I was able to finish “Gale”. I think it turned out really well, even if I did misread the pattern and did the back the same as the front. If I hadn’t told you you wouldn’t even have known! Basically the purled rib pattern that goes half-way across the front was supposed to go all the way across for the back, whatever. I also made the neck shorter than the pattern said because I’m not always a fan of the turtle neck…

Lynn looks lovely in the Remy Poncho.

It’s fun at the show to try on other things you may like to knit. Of course I wanted to try Remy too…

I like it! Not sure if I’ll do it yet though.

I also tried to pick some colours for the Lilli Pilli shawl. You can see the Ravelry page for it here. Mom did it in a nice light turquoise with white and grey stripes. I’m thinking more like…

We’ll see!

It was a good day at the fair and if you haven’t been it’s worth going to. I even had a surprise visitor!…

My Grammie!

My Grammie!

Grammie and Pa came for a quick look around. They said the Farmer’s market beside the hall was also very good.
