Metallic Gold Soma Intimates

December 16, 2015

After attending Camp Workroom Social a couple of months ago, I had a couple of days to spend in NYC. These days were completely consumed by fabric and notion shopping. I roped Lola into joining me at Spandex World and Mood where we made all sorts of amazing decisions. I left with yards and yards of mesh.

I kind of feel like Superwoman in it tbh.

I used the Papercut Patterns Soma swimsuit pattern. No mods. Just a straight up XS which is suuuuper awkward to pullover. I’m a lil’ busty, so next time there will be a back clasp. Black FOE for the edging.

{Also pictured – the MTT BFF necklace. You can get one here.}

I’ve been making this past year, but only documenting briefly on Instagram. I want to write and share tutorials and patterns and engage with this creative community that I love so much.

Well, that’s it for now. I just wanted to see who’s still out there. See you guys soon.

I could not be more excited about the release of grainline studio’s linden sweatshirt. so i made two. my lazy ass couldn’t be bothered with hemming, but i might go back and do that in the near future. at least on the tweed version. that fabric is a bit unravel-y.

fabric: super cheap neon-flecked tweed that i picked up from colorado fabrics. they have fantastic knits, so if you’re in the area i highly suggest you check them out.

this version is especially exciting because paired with my true bias hudson’s it becomes a senior suit! that term was recently dubbed by grainline and refers to matching separates. it might be my fall/winter uniform.

i did a straight size 6 for both versions based on my bust measurement and i’m really happy with fit. i’m washing fabric and sourcing ribbing, so i can make a couple in view A. hooray! see you guys soon.

I can’t stop knitting hats. This isn’t a problem since I lose them at about the same rate that I make them. And Colorado is chilly.

Sewing stuff should be up next…

Knitting | easy baby alpaca hat

September 29, 2014

I love marled yarn and wanted a quick project, so behold: the super easy baby alpaca hat. This stuff has been in my stash for like two years.

WIP

Materials: one skein of Misti Alpaca Chunky

Instructions: Find some needles. I used US size 9 16″ circulars. Cast-on 64 stitches. K2 P2 until you’re over it. I wanted to do a brim, but would’ve run out of yarn hence the strange ribbing measurement of 3.5″. Knit some more. When the hat measures 8″ then start decreasing. I separated the hat into four sections of 16 stitches with stitch markers. Decrease every row as follows: pm, ssk, knit to two stitches before marker, k2tog. When you have, like, eight stitches left, finish the hat. Weave in ends. Boom.

fin!

boom.

I just cast-on Bough, so that’s coming up next.

I’m not sure if you guys have noticed but I’m really into neons/chartreuse. ::sigh:: Even with fluorescent hair. Nothing can deter me. Anyway, this pattern is great. Super fast and clear instructions. Two thumbs up.
