Warming Up

Winter has arrived. We have been  down to single digits   at night,   usually this sort of weather only lasts a few weeks.  (I hope)   I really need some wool clothing  for it’s superior warmth so  I made two tops from a double sided wool kit.  The blue is the right side while the teals is the wrong side and feels a little softer and fuzzy which  means warmer.  I made  this Loes Hinse  V neck Tunic in an afternoon, by wizzing it up on the overlocker and finishing the neck and hem with a twin needle.  The knit is medium to thick and reasonably stable,  I am planning to make a longer cardigan/jacket next,  to co-ordinate with the Ts.

While I was in the mood I cut and sewed this Burda 3197 T from the same fabric.  This Burda pattern is a basic scoop neck design a basic for all wardrobes,  while the V-neck tunic is longer and nice to wear with  with slim pants or leggins and boots.

    Purrrfect! The tops look great on you and I always love what you do with your color choices and colorblocking. These will work so nicely with your new coat from the P&S pattern you posted on Flickr. Where do you find your wonderful wool knits?

      Always feel lucky when I come across nice knits….I purchased 5m of the blue/teal and just had to go back for another 5m. I wish I had the roll!
