Weekend Binge Sewing

18 Mar

Our weekends have been packed as of late, so it was nice to finally have one with a bit more downtime.  I took full advantage of having some extra time this weekend by tackling a few sewing projects and finishing up some knitting.

Using organic canvas by Rashida Coleman-Hale for Cloud 9, I made this large tote bag and wristlet. The tote will go a dear friend of mine as part of her birthday present.

I’ve been admiring some of the creations made from the Coco pattern so much so that I was inspired to make my own.  I made a very simple dress version using Ponte de Roma knit in charcoal.

I’ve also been sewing some of the new Oliver + S spring patterns, but I’ll save those for future posts.

We are still in winter mode up here in Boston, so I’ve been knitting a few accessories to get us through the rest of the winter.

H. & J. have new mittens.  I made these using bulky variegated, merino wool from Morehouse Farms.

For me, I finished the Elena Cowl using 4 skeins of Quince and Co.’s Chickadee in Iceland.

  

I’m trying to knit my way out of winter and sew myself into spring.  More spring sewing projects coming up…
