Wednesday Weekly #124

Happy Wednesday! I have been diving head first into the world of knitting this week and am almost done my second hat (it’s a baby hat, but it still counts, right?) I am having so much fun and can see this developing into a love similar to my love of sewing. Trying a new craft and starting from the beginning was intimidating, but I am so glad I gave knitting another shot. Have you ever discovered a new craft and been surprised by how much you love it? What a wonderful feeling!

  1. Thanks for sharing my Laneway dress, Helen 🙂 It’s one of my favourite dresses that I’ve made lately. Now I have my eye on the new Lisette pattern… And thanks for all those shares — so much to explore every Wednesday!

  2. Ooh, I have some pink crushed velvet that is needing to be sewn. Thanks for the tips. This will be my first time sewing that type of fabric. Wish me luck!
