Latest Me-Made

Here are just a couple of stuff I made over the summer to get ready for the colder months.

1) I love how this sweater turned out, and it was an easy knit to boot. Pattern can be found here.
Worsted Boxy sweater




 2) My sister-in-law bought this DMC Top This hat kit for me to knit for the little one. This was another easy project with such a cute result:)



3) My husband rarely requests anything, but one thing he did want me to make for him are boxers coz these are items he buys a lot of. I thought I'd give this pattern from Diana Rupp's Sew Everything Workshop book a go, and it worked out great. I didn't bother matching the fabric pattern as this was just a test, but next time for sure:)

The Foxy Boxers



In case you're curious, this is me when I knit.  The husband jokes I'm Peg Bundy except I knit and eat chips instead of bonbons when watching my TV shows/listening to podcasts. "Oh, Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaal!"

  2. Everything turned out daebak Emmy! Your family is so lucky that you're such a knitting and sewing whiz! I can't wait until it's cold enough to wear that beanie you sent me :D

    Sorry to hear that something in your routine broke you out. I hate when that happens :( The bare bones approach is definitely the way to go until it clears up and then you can slowly add one item back at a time to figure out the culprit.
