A New Years Resolution

Happy New Year! I’m super excited about my first crafty item, I’m sewing my first ever knit garment! I’m using the awesome Megan Nielsen Briar pattern to make a tee shirt. I found a beautiful cream knit with a metallic copper polka dot at The Fabric Store a few weeks ago, and decided I needed to overcome my fear of knits. And so far its going pretty well! Sewing with a twin needle is much simpler than I thought, and my ancient Bernina is coping magnificently ( seriously, its an early 1960’s Bernina 730 Record, it belonged to my Nana. I love it to bits, but I think it should be classed as an antique!). I’ll hopefully have it finished in the next couple of days, and hopefully the weather will clear up so that I get a chance to wear it!
