Finished - a scant Simplicity 1366

I know what you're thinking. Will this chick EVER so anything non-stretch? Turns out in the colder months the answer is likely not! My warm weather sewing is overwhelmingly wovens and cold weather sewing means knits. But I realised I hadn't yet blogged a project from early Autumn so you get some out of season action today.

Today I share with you a pattern that is OMG totally new and exciting and ground breaking! Or not. It's Simplicity 1366 and being the TOTAL trendsetter that I am, I've finally made it. Just.

Finished - statement sleeves and stripes

Stripes. Will I ever get enough? My pre-frontal cortex says no. My stripe addiction continues unabated. Not even slightly sorry.

A most snuggly hug from Auntie Esme

Hello lovelies. I hope your week has been better than mine. I wont be dwelling, because I know you're all here for the sewing and not for my grief, but I had to let my little furry catternweight move on from this world on the weekend. My husband and I are still trying to accept the reality, and goodness knows I should be well used to the reality, having assisted hundreds of other pet owners over my career to do the same with their darlings, but nonetheless one of the loves of my life is gone forever, along with a sizeable chunk of my heart.

So when one needs comfort, one not only needs comfort food but comfort clothing, and what better than a big, warm, snuggly wool jumper with a collar that one can escape into when reality is just a bit hard to contend with.
