Wednesday WIPs: That’s Good Sewing!

I’m recovering from Covid and haven’t been too productive. (Don’t worry. I’m fine. Just tired and snotty.) I spent all weekend on the couch binge watching Season 6 of the Great British Sewing Bee. Bob hung out with me on Sunday for a bit, and commented he wouldn’t mind having a men’s tropical shirt, which was one of the challenges for holiday week.

I’m on it! Besides, I was going to knit him a Knitter’s Dude cardigan for his birthday, but I haven’t cast on yet and his birthday is in September. Why not sew a shirt instead?

I looked around online, and found a new-to-me pattern company, Wardrobe By Me. I’m using the Tropical Shirt pattern. Bob is lanky, so I’m grading sizes between a Large in width and 2XL in length. It looks to be a pretty straightforward pattern. I have some Marvel superhero fabric on the way which he likes. I’m looking forward to practicing my buttonholes!

There is a good chance I will finish knitting my Halloween Livie shawl this week — at least if my arms stop feeling tired and rubbery from the ‘rona.

  1. Hope you feel better soon. One of my coworkers (although we’re all remote and he’s in Minnesota and I’m in NM) caught it this weekend and it knocked him on his butt, so hopefully yours will turn around quickly and not be too bad!

  2. Wishing you all better soon Alissa! Be good to yourself in whatever way suits your fancy. We have the B1 rona floating around my county, too. So, I am back to wearing a mask whenever I leave the house. With our recent heatwave, I do skip the mask when I run through the sprinkler to cool off. 😊

  3. So sorry to see you’ve got COVID. I hope you feel better soon! We’ve got BA5 going around like crazy where I live. The shirt sounds cool. I can’t wait to see how it turns out. I do not have the patience for sewing, but my daughter has really taken to it. I’ve noted the Great British sewing bee so I remember to tell her about it..
