My new go to sweatshirt

I just finished another sweatshirt with my new go to pattern. New Look 6314

I made this earlier in the year in a grey and I knew then I would be making it again, but I didn’t realize it would be this soon.

I thought I needed to make an adjustment to the neckline but actually the only thing I needed to do was adjust my stitch width and length.

The fabric is a double sided knit that I picked up at my local JoAnn’s.

For the next one I’ll dress it up a bit with a nice knit wool for next fall.

Safiyahs Athletic Wear

Well my girl tried out for the Kennedy Games and made the team. She will be running track for her elementary school in a tract meet in April.

We picked her up from practice last week and she was having a ball.

I thought it would be a good idea to get her some sweats to wear to school on practice days, which meant a trip to our local JoAnn’s. She picked out the fabric for the sweats and all I can say is she is only 10 years old. I modified one of the patterns we had in “her” stash.

I couldn’t talk her out of the owls and grandpa says they look like pajamas. I am determined to make them again in a different fabric.

We decided on a black rib knit for the waist and leg trim.

It’s a fun design, kinda goes with her personality.

After a little research I found these on Pinterest pinned by Net-A-Porter and I think something similar to these will work. With a few minor adjustments to the pattern.

So, this means another trip to the fabric store.
