Radio Silence...

Oops I've already let this lapse..but Hey I've been doing lots of cool crafty stuff! I've been knitting (a SOS 2013 post coming soon! Just have to sew in some sleeves!) and crocheting

...but mostly SEWING- with KNITS no less! (It seems like it's been so hot I've retreated to my sewing room with the AC going!)

I wear mostly knit tops. They're comfy and when your big busted like me, they fit better than a button down top! I've sewn with knits before and done a bit of research around the net for tips...but I found this cool Craftsy class on sewing with knits. (have you seen craftsy? If not you must check it out!) Meg McElwee is the instructor and she gives all sorts of great hints and tips. Even if you are a new sewer check it out!! It comes with patterns for a Tee, with either a scoop or V-neck, yoga pants or shorts, a yoga skirt, a hoodie and a cute little dress. I LOVE the tee pattern. It fits me great! I've sewing up oh I don't know like 4 or 5 of them so far

(and made a nightshirt), a hoodie, made 2 skirts and 2 pairs of yoga shorts! Plus I've sewn up a couple other patterns using knits I had. I really need to make myself one of the dresses too! I also have been buying up some more knits for more tops and shorts...
