My current knitting project is just not blog worthy at the moment. If you really want to see a few more inches of stockinette back piece, email me and I’ll send you off a picture. For the rest of you, I thought I’d show you what I’m attempting to sew up. This is a knit top from the latest Burda magazine and it’s constructed from 2 way stretch knit. For those of you who sew, you’ve all just groaned and clenched your butt cheeks. Yup, I thought I’d try the knit thing once again after seeing all the great stretchy things Mariko‘s been doing.
So far I’ve traced off the pattern and determined I’ve got enough fabric. The pattern "tip" in Burda says you can use fusible water soluble seam stuff to stabilize the seams. I’ve never used this stuff and am not convinced it will more of a pain in the ass than not using it. Any stabilizers out there? Any tips? Don’t worry too much, it’s $5 worth of material.
ALSO…I just found out that H&M is opening in SAN FRANCISCO this fall in Union Square! It’s first west coast location and it’s right next to me. I’m in heaven, but I’m still going to the H&M in Owings Mills, Maryland sometime during Sheep and Wool dammit.
