I'm working on V8709. All I have to do is set in the sleeves. The fabric is a deep olive green/white stripe, poly suiting. Here's the pattern and fabric.
But what landed on the table is something I've wanted for a long, long time. Years ago, back in the 70s, I took Stretch&Sew classes. It was a big deal at that time, this sewing on knits. Very new. No one knew much about that type of sewing. I bought the workbooks, which are still today, good guides for sewing with knits. Several years ago, I let those books go, and have regretted it since. And then--there they were--those first Stretch&Sew books, on the grab table. It took me about a second to scoop them up!
There was also an unopened software program, "Sweater Wizard". I'm anxious to play around with that.
No sewing today or tomorrow. Our little grandsons, aged three and four, are spending the night with us. I don't know how any of you sew when you have little ones around. But, that's ok. Sewing can wait. This weekend, I'm doing crafts with the kids. We'll be making ghosts, and decorating pumpkins and other Halloween type fun!
