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!
