I dID IT. I FINISHED THE FUCKING CHART AND I HAVR FIVE ROWS OF GARTER STITCH LEFT ON THIS AND THEN I GET TO START THE BACK PIECE. IM SO FUCKING HAPPY.
HERES TGE FUCKING CHART I’M USUNG:
Free sewing pattern and easy to follow tutorial for these sweet gym shorts, in ten different child & adult sizes!
Using only 1/2 to 3/4 yard of two different fabrics, this is a great stash busting project.
I am totally going to sew me up some pretty pajama bottoms!
I finished my Pieces of Eight Mitts! Looking through some of the diagrams and pictures made it seem a bit daunting at first, but the pattern is very well-written and methodical. I like how the designer warns that anyone who attempts these mitts should be comfortable with the idea of “smoothing out” uneven stitch counts. I know I certainly had to do that a couple times!
I used Patons Kroy Socks in Singin’ the Blues Stripes, which is almost as good as the Starry Night colours I envisioned when I first saw this pattern. I love the alternating blue and grey stripes, and I’m super happy that I was able to start each mitt in about the same spot in the stripe pattern.
Mods: twisted ribbing for the thumbs, slwyif for a clean top edge, added some short rows to the hand to make the fit better for my teeny wrists, flipped the second mitt inside out twice so I could do regular twisted ribbing on both thumbs.
All in all these were quicker than I thought, and just as entertaining as I expected. Thanks for looking!
