For Kid’s Clothes Week day six, I put the facing on the Oliver + S Sleepover Pajama top.
For day seven, I practiced attaching snaps and successfully attached 4 snaps to the pajama top!
This is the first time I’ve used snaps in a project. I used size 16 pearl snaps and the SnapSetter tool, and it works great!
I didn’t make a whole lot of progress because I had to trace the 2T/4T size from the pattern, and I find millinery work a little fussy – lots of pinning curves, finger pressing and topstitching. You might notice in the picture above that I should’ve been fussier with the cutting layout. It totally slipped my mind that I should be lining up the center of the hat with the center of a plaid stripe. ::sigh::
All the pinning and finger pressing is worth it though – these hats are so cute! I’ve made two of these caps before, one for my son and one for a nephew, both in corduroy and quilting cotton. For this cap I’m using Pendelton Wool and quilting cotton. The wool is pretty stretchy and ravels easily, but so far that’s not causing any difficulty.
Today’s the first day of Kid’s Clothes Week! I’ve long admired other people’s KCW projects, and I’m thrilled to be participating for the first time.
For the first day, I spent an hour cutting out Oliver+S Sleepover Pajamas in size 4T. The fabric is Betty the Yeti flannel from Robert Kaufman, which I love!
This winter will just not end! Minnesota got a late-season snow storm this week. We got about 8″ of snow. Good thing I just finished a couple late-season scarves for me and Isaac.
Pattern: Malabrigo Linen Stitch Scarf (ravelry)
Needles: US 11
Yarn: kit from the Yarnery
Pattern: similar to Roll-ups from Son of Stitch and Bitch (ravelry)
Yarn: Cascade 220
I cast on 20 sts and knitted until the scarf was preschooler-sized. I’m usually a continental knitter, but I tried lever knitting for this. It was slow-going. I don’t think I’ll convert to lever knitting any time son.
