So since I semi-conquered the knit fabrics as part of my Me-Made-May challenge, I've been hankering for some more knit fabric sewing action.
I've purchased the Avocado, the Moneta, the Tiramisu, and (I can't believe my feminist self is admitting this) the Henley. Admittedly I offered, and he reluctantly accepted. I also downloaded the Kirsten Kimono Tee, and Tessuti's Mandy Boat tee and Our Fave Top. Oh - and after realising I was using the Tonic tee with a Tonic 2 sleeve, I finally printed off the actual Tonic 2 tee with it's crew neck variation. I'm all set to sew up a storm.
Except for one little thing.
I somehow hurt my back. My days over the last week have been filled with constant pain, a stooped-at-the-waist posture (attractive!), muscle relaxants, and gentle exercise in a heated swimming pool. But I'm seeing a bit of a glimmer of hope on the horizon. Tonight I was able to do a little cutting, compiling and taping of print-at-home patterns (not while sitting on the floor either - I'd never get back up!)
I can't wait to feel more on top of the world. This lack of sewing - of doing anything, really - is starting to bore me. I am enjoying going to the pool every day though. Mmmmmm. Spa jets.
So while I wait to heal, these wait for me.
And perhaps last night I bought a little of these online.

Because it seems I have more patterns that I want to sew than I have fabrics. Well, that's my story and I'm darn well sticking to it.
I'm also reading the Colette Guide to Sewing Knits. It seems a pretty perfect fit for a relative beginner like me. Do you have it? What do you think? I probably should give a review once I finish reading it and get sewing again.
