KNITTERS-DELIGHT

FO Overload...Catching Up Some and Australian Adventures



So I have actually been sewing up a storm. I have gained some weight from all the travelling and eating without exercise so my clothes were way to snug too be work appropriate. I sewed a bunch of maxi skirts to wear to the trade-show I exhibited at in Australia. I also enjoyed some family-time with my friend Brandi when I returned and we were able to get out to her old knitting group and do go fabric shopping for a sweatshop legging adventure. I'm continuing on my legging and maxi skirt kick since it's an easy wardrobe builder while I work on re-losing my once lost weight.

So I didn't get a chance to meet any fellow craftsters while in Australia, but really did appreciate all of the emails I received with people sending me options of where to go and who might be available to meet. I have another business trip in less than two weeks to China, so I will make a point to get to the fabric stalls, despite the quick 4-day adventure.


This is a simple knit top that I made a few months back for my sister. I can't remember the pattern number, though. I'm also cutting some basic knit tops this weekend to go with the leggings as well.


So here are the four maxi skirts I made using McCall 6654. It's a quick and easy pattern with a narrower version (my striped one) and fuller versions (the other three). I did not manage to get a picture of my red version outside of Brandi snapping me at Yardage Town on our shopping adventure before knitting *don't judge. ha ha*. I have already cut another version so there will be more of these soon.
