Happy Sunday! Checking in today with a Year of Projects post. Year of Projects is a group of bloggers who plan their projects for the year and then blog about their progress weekly, usually on Sundays. You can find my list for the year here.
I’ve got one quick update today. I decided I wanted to try and do a sewing project this weekend, since I was going to my friend Leah’s for knitting yesterday and could use her sewing knowledge. I ended up making the pants from the Spinifex PJs from Muna and Broad.
I think these turned out pretty well! I sewed the size E, and they’re probably a little big, but fit ok around the waist and aren’t falling down or anything like that. This was my first time working with elastic and piping, and it was a little tricky in some places, but overall I figured it out without too much angst. I’m not sure if I’ll make the top, that half seems even more complicated, and I think I’ve hit my sewing quota for the next month or so lol! I do like to sew, but I don’t like the prep work for it. So we’ll see. If the top never gets made that’s fine, realistically I’d probably spend more time in the pants anyway.
Knitting has been very monogamous on my Cempasuchil top, I’m slowly but surely making my way through the body and hopefully by this time next week I’ll be on to the raglan decreases. Maybe??? Overall this has been a pretty great week, and since it’s December I’ve kept up with filming things for Vlogmas. Once I decided I was going to do Vlogmas in earnest, I found I had a lot of footage, so I ended up putting everything together for three days. I hope you enjoy!
