I am taking part in the Me Made May - wearing a homemade garment every day for the full month. This is all being organized by the lovely Zoe of Sozo - pop on over and sign up!
This will be quite a challenge for me as I only really got back into sewing last year, but we all need something to push us along! Here is my pledge:
'I, twotoast sign up as a participant of Me-Made-May '13. I endeavour to a self-made garment every day for the month of May. These garments will be either sewn or knitted by me.'
I think that weekdays will mainly be sewn garments, and the weekends will involve a lot of handknitted socks. Which leads me onto a sad moment. I had to retire a pair of socks this weekend due to a hole in the heel of one of them.
So, a moment if you please . . . .
I actually dyed the yarn for these socks myself, knit them up two-at-a-time and entered them into the Western Showcase that highlights local crafts at the Calgary Stampede, in 2011.
They will be missed. I know that I could darn the heel, but I have about 100 other pairs to wear so I think I will be good to go!
So how about you? Are you taking part in Me Made May? Go on, you know you want to!!
