This really is the story of my (sewing) life! I make something… I like it… I make another million! The most recent victim pattern that this has happened to has been the Willow Tank from Grainline. I’m not sure if anyone noticed this year but it has been hot, it has even been hot up north.… Continue reading Why stick with just one?
One of my favourite makes this year so far (I know, that doesn’t exactly narrow it down) is one I’ve made before. This is now my third Blackwood cardigan.
