Ep. 59 – Scientific Approach to Sewing

Intro/Announcements:

Knitting:

FOs:

  • Simple Skyp Socks, by Adrienne Ku. Berroco Metallic Sox, #1381, US 0. Finally finished!

WIPS:

  • Cravenleigh Cardigan, my design. KP Swish Worsted Tonal in “Inkwell” and “Bare.” US 5 and US 8. Added a pocket, but probably need to redo the matress stitch using the lighter color yarn.
  • 25th Street Pullover, my design. Malabrigo Sock in “Ochre.” US 3 and US 6. Math strikes again…recalculations are necessary. 🙁

Sewing:

Troy (my husband) joins us today to update us on his sewing progress and his thoughts on his new hobby!

  • Troy’s Shirts: Burda 4/2010/#128 – first muslin. Vogue 8759 – 2nd muslin, cut out wrong size!
  • Ben’s Outfit:  dress pants in a grey/orange plaid – Burda 5/2009/#137 (from the Russian site), vest in an orange quilting cotton – Simplicity 4836 (oop).
  • James’ pants made out of navy bottomweight cotton using Butterick 4355 (oop).
  • My skirt: Butterick 5566 – needed a bit of fit adjustment but otherwise worked out well.
