Sewing and knitting projects

Projects in Progress – January 2019

3 min read

I got the idea from Elise Joy’s blog to share all of my projects in progress. Hopefully, it will inspire me to finish off some of the work in progress in my creative corner.

Let’s start off with sewing projects in progress.

Gentlemen’s tie by Sew me Something

Projects in progress - Gentlemen's tie

The pattern is by Jules Fallon, the owner of Sew me Something. Edd and I met her at the Harrogate Knitting and Stitching Show and discovering her shop was one of the highlights of that day. I bought a kit which included the pattern for the tie as well as all the fabric needed. I have a bit of hand stitching left to do and then the tie will be ready for Edd to wear! Hopefully, by the end of the month, I can post a picture of him rocking it.

Hinterland Dress by Sew Liberated

Projects in Progress - Hinterland dress

I haven’t gotten very far with this one yet. I printed the pattern, stuck it together cut it out and cut my fabric. This is probably something I will end up doing in the summer once I am back from my internship. I am really excited to dive in. Last year I made the Metamorphic dress by Sew Liberated (you can see a picture here) and it was such a fun make and has become one of my favourite garments to wear.

On to knitting projects in progress…

Raglan jumper

Projects in progress - self-drafted knitted jumper

I didn’t use a pattern for this. Instead calculated the number of stitches I would need using a raglan method. In order to learn this method I watched a lot of youtube videos. I have struggled a bit with the sleeves but really want to finish off the last bits of this soon.

Cartagena Sweater by We are Knitters

This is a very similar pattern to the Bossanova sweater by We are Knitters I made at the end of 2017. (You can see a picture of it here). I will try and change the neckline slightly. Hopefully, by February I can update you of how that goes. I think I am about half way finished knitting this and I will try and finish before heading out to Germany in early March.

That’s all my projects in progress

I have a few more mending projects on my pile and also quite a bit of fabric I bought with specific projects in mind. The things above are everything I have on the go right now and am hoping to finish soon. Tell me about your creative projects in progress – I would love to hear about it!
