.A rainbow of knits.

My desk...this is what work looks like.  Finishing up the last bits and pieces of a new pattern to send out to my testers.  It's been a slow and steady process with lots of interruptions over the last few weeks but I'm happy to almost be there!

And while I plod along with the boring computer side of things, I keep looking to a MASSIVE rainbow of sensational knit fabrics sitting along side me.  This is my motivation to get all of the computer stuff done - cutting into this rainbow and creating a whole array of beautiful garments.  Yay!
The new pattern is using knit fabrics and is an absolute basic wardrobe staple.  I guarantee that anyone with kids to sew for will get a lot of use out of it.  The amazing fabrics on my desk are from Crafty Mamas (thanks Lisa!)  

Super cool Hilco Campan stripes below...
 And loads of my favourite Stella solids...
 I don't know about you, but I find it hard to visualise what solids are going to look like in real life from a colour swatch online...hopefully these pics will help give you an indication of the colours and I'll be sure to list colour names next to finished samples when they are done!

sewing knits/stretch still scares me, but I think I might have to give it another go because I just cannot find a brown skivvy in a size 2 and Maddie so needs one to go under cute pinafores and such!

I love those stripes, but surely, no-one has that tidy a desk in real life!

Toni any chance you can include some hints/tips in the instructions for working with an overlocker and knits?
