What I'm working on

I am really excited how the skirt of the Vogue Knitting mag winter 06/07 is coming along. The yarn I'm using Gedifra Mayra is slightly heavier weight than the yarn that the pattern calls for so I played with gauge swatches to determine hook size and the size that I needed to chain for.

Below is a picture of the design,

I'm working on pjs for my youngest son, who after outgrowing his present pjs decided that I could make him a pair. So I'm using a pattern from my stash. The fabric is a cotton jersey from Fabric Mart.

I also have the pattern ready to cut Vogue 1224. I think you probably have seen this pattern made up by quite a few sewists and I'm sure the fabric is familiar too, it is a rayon jersey from Joann.

I don't have to work today until this afternoon so I'm catching up on housework and maybe get some sewing in.

Stay well!


  1. I always love to see the knitting projects of fellow sewing bloggers. I'm constantly amazed by how beautiful it is and wish I had the patience to learn. Maybe someday.

  2. You have some very nice projects on the go..I love the knitted dress style, it will be gorgeous!

  3. Wow - I hadn't seen that pattern before - its gorgeous and its going to look really good in the color you've chosen. Out of curiousity - what do you plan to wear under it? Also, its crochet, isn't it?

  4. Hi SewOm,
    The pattern for the dress is crochet; I plan to wear a full slip under it. Thanks for commenting!


I love hearing from you!
