Well the time has come, my friends, to wind down our Stretch Yourself series. I definitely stretched myself doing this series, and so many of you have shared with us your big plans to stretch yourselves with some of the techniques and projects we talked about. Yes! More jazz hands! Miranda and I have been so happy with the response you guys have given us, and all your enthusiasm made all the hard work payoff. You’re awesome.
The first week was our best shot at a knit-sewing resource guide. We hope that our posts on fabric selection, cutting, construction, and finishing techniques will help get you comfortable with the basics, and our posts on drafting patterns and tee variations will get you inspired. There’s a lot of information there, so read now or read it later, it’s there for you when you have a question or are ready to break it down.
To go along with all the resources we’ve put together, we are so excited today to offer another giveaway (we’re on a rampage today!) for the fabulous resource book Fabrics A to Z, which is a reference guide for getting to know and selecting fabric by Dana Willard from Made. I’ve heard nothing but great things about this book, and I’m sure it will come in handy as you go in for the tackle of your next knit project (It has a section dedicated to it!). For a chance to win this book, simply leave a comment below by January 25!**closed**
