Things have been super-busy over here, and although I've been snatching time here and there to sew, I haven't taken any time to photograph or blog.
I'm really excited though, firstly because I finally got around to using the twin needle I begged the Cyclist into buying for me a month ago (apparently I told him it was urgent - think he thinks I conned him into going to the fabric store for no good reason). I LOVE it! I've never been game to use knitted fabrics because of the stretch/wavy seam factor, but my new twin needle is brilliant!! Here's my first real effort at using it (finished a couple of weeks ago - its already been through the wash, but today was the first chance I got to take photos):
this wrap), and I'm not overly keen on the fit, but what I am impressed with is the seams - not a hint of unwanted stretching or waviness along the seams. Fantastic! I was so enthused that I started on a T-shirt for the Schoolboy.
The other reason that I'm excited is the Spring Top Sew-Along. You may have noticed that I've added the button to my blog. I've used it as incentive to make myself a couple of tops. I've taken photos of them today too, but a post about them will have to wait another day or two.
