[Me-Made-May 13] day 31: the ultimate me-made


On the final day of the challenge, our little girl Héloïse decided it was time we met! We’re both fine and need some time adjusting to this new life – my presence will be scarce in the next few weeks or so, until I can get anywhere near knitting needles or a sewing machine.

[Me-Made-May] 13 day 28

Knitting for grown-ups, Me-Made-Months

Only a few more days before the end of the month! There are many repeats in my outfits these days, but I don’t think it really matters, I’m doing my best under the circumstances: today I’m wearing the same bright yellow t-shirt as day 3.   But I preferred to show you my feet because […]

[Me-Made-May 13] day 21

Me-Made-Months, Sewing for grown-ups

Still cold and rainy! max today: 13°C… I’m not sure the weather will actually turn to spring before the end of May, it’s a pity because I’d really like to wear short sleeves for once 🙂 Me-Made outfit today is the skirt seen on day 4 and my first Renfrew (view C with cowl neck […]

[Me-Made-May13] day 17

Me-Made-Months, Sewing for grown-ups

Today is the first time I actually wear this blouse, even though it’s been finished for around 6 weeks now: the weather simply hasn’t been warm enough since then. The pattern is Datura by French Indy company Deer&Doe, which I received as a present for my birthday (thanks again, girls!). I really like the collar! […]

[Me-Made-May13] day 13

Knitting for grown-ups, Me-Made-Months

Socks today! still rather cold for a month of May and apparently the forecast isn’t any better for the next 10 days… So handknits again, a little meh this time. These are Stealth Argyles Socks by Eunny Jang, from the book Sock Knitting Masterclass. I really like the colour combination when I bought the book, […]

[Me-Made-May 13] day 12

Me-Made-Months, Sewing for grown-ups

I’m having a kind of day off today: my only me-made, apart from yesterday’s cardigan and my long-sleeved Renfrew, is underwear that I will definitely not show you. I used Indigorchid’s free pattern and sewed a sort of muslin out of an old t-shirt; so it’s rather ugly but very comfortable. See you tomorrow!

[Me-Made-May 13] day 11

Knitting for grown-ups, Me-Made-Months

It’s cold and rainy today, max 15° C and I’ve caught a cold, so I’m layering garments and pulling handknits out of the wardrobe. And adding somme cuddly time on the sofa with my cat Groquick. He is in a way wearing a me-made: his favorite handknit blanket, which is the Ten Stitch Blanket by […]

[Me-Made-May 13] day 7

Me-Made-Months, Sewing for grown-ups

today: a mix of 2 tops from a recent issue of Fait Main magazine (n° 375 – april 2013). I used the gathered sleeves and upper back of tunic C and the front of tunic D. I’ve finished it yesterday, so I don’t know if it’s nice to wear, we’ll see.. I considerably reduced the […]
