Ep. 78 – Six Months Later

Intro/Announcements:

  • Sorry about the long break – I should be back to a normal recording schedule now.
  • Everyone’s back to school/work and we had a fun summer vacation.

Knitting:

WIP:

  • Troy’s Socks – using Biscotte & Cie Felix in the Plume de paon (peacock feather) colorway. This is my third attempt at getting the fit right and I finally did it! It was originally meant as a birthday present (May) but maybe it’ll end up as a Christmas present?
  • Flixton Tee – my design using KnitPicks Shine Sport in the Reef colorway. Again, my third attempt and I’m nearly at the armhole separation.

Sewing

Planning on sewing my entire wardrobe for our Disney Cruise next year…is that crazy? I’m using the idea of a Capsule Wardrobe (where everything is interchangeable) to achieve maximum efficiently.

WIPs:

  • Butterick 6169 – Moto Jacket. I’m so excited to make this faux-leather jacket. I’ve just cut out the muslin to do a test fit.
  • Ottobre 02-2010-04 – “Zaffiro” Skirt – I’m using techniques from Craftsy‘s “The Couture Dress” class. Its a bit time consuming, but it will be awesome! 
  • Vogue 1387 – This is looking huge! Not sure if I like it.
