The questions are:
- What’s your favourite make of 2018 and why?
Sewing – TATB Freya dress in tan velour – comfy & smart – wore to work xmas do & on xmas day
– quick & easy make, will make lots more.
Knitting – Vinterfjell, Skeindeer – 1st top down colourwork yoke sweater with significant modifications – 1st steek + added colourwork cuffs & hems + added short rows to lengthen lower back.
- What did you attempt in 2018 that you won’t do this year?
Nothing springs to mind.
- What will you continue to make?
Lots of socks! I am determined to complete the box o sox this year.
Trousers & tops – plenty more Freya’s on the way!
- What will you try this year that you haven’t tried before?
Sewing – Bag making – I have the Annette pattern by Swoon, just need the hardware & I’m good to go.
Knitting – own designs – not necessarily to sell, but just to see if I can design things for me – I have a shawl idea & a sweater idea to try. Have improvised some socks, but not yet knit a premeditated pattern of my own.
- Where do you see your wardrobe at the end of this year, and where do you see it in 5 years time?
End of 2019 – better curated wardrobe with a significant amount of everyday me-made items.
5 years – 85% me-made wardrobe, well curated and not bursting at the seams!
