Follow my blog with Bloglovin

I'm not sure why I need to claim my blog. I guess if everyone jumped off a cliff, I'd jump with them!

Just so this isn't a pictureless blog post, here's the newest kitty to follow me home.

Sewaholic Renfrew

I have no idea why I waited so long to make this, I seem to be the last person who has. It was so easy and quick, I see many more in the not so distant future. I actually picked up a cherry print from Mood on Saturday during Lladybird's meet up. This was the perfect for the sewist who approaches knits with trepidation.

Gifts for a Baby

No not my baby! While I didn't get as much done as I had hoped before my friend's baby's birth, I'm proud of how these came out. 

I don't often work with knit fabrics but I'm pleased with these. I did things a little differently from the pattern. Most notably, I used foe instead of bias binding.

I took the Wee Ones class on Craftsy and stuck it out. I think it'd be easy for an intermediate knitter but as a beginner it was challenging. I'm glad I stuck it out and finished the bunny, even if he's a little deformed.

Needless to say, the parents are non-traditional, hence the Motorhead diaper bag. Figuring out the adjustable straps ended up being the most challenging part.

This entailed a lot of frogging and redoing but I'm happy with the end result, even if it's not perfect. It's my first sweater!
