I was super excited when the folks at Jimmy Beans Wool contacted me and asked if they could use the One Hour Skirt from my book Sewing in a Straight Line as the project for their first ever Knit-Along and Sew-Along. As you may know, Jimmy Beans is a fantastic online yarn store, and they recently started selling fabric too–as a crocheter/knitter who also sews, this is music to my ears! Yay for the yarny people and the fabric people joining together to live in fiber harmony!
So, the JB peeps had the idea to do a knit/sew along to encourage their followers to get another step closer to being able to craft an entire handmade outfit–not only a sweater, but a skirt to go with it too! I love that!
Here are a bunch of One-Hour skirts made by a bunch of cute ladies at my book launch at Etsy. Don’t you want to make one too?! Well, just pop on over to the Jimmy Beans blog to join the Knit/Sew-Along, and you can! Here’s the JB blog post where you can get all the details. And here’s the Ravelry thread where you join, too. Now go get your skirt and sweater on!
(And thanks to JB for interviewing me on their blog today! xo)
