3 weeks ago I started sewing a pair of black jeans. It’s taken so long because at each step I made improvements to my basic pants pattern. This week despite various distractions, I managed to finish said black jeans.

Last week I started making sewing some black jeans. I continued to work on them this week.

I have also been rather hard on myself in the last little while so I decided to go see my therapist and talk through my personal struggles.

I started working on a pair of black jeans this week but straight out of the gate, my sewing machine started acting up. I couldn’t figure out why it was broken so eventually I got Handyman Corn to step in and solve the problem.

Entertainment Corn also showed up.

4 weeks ago I began the journey of learning how to resize a wool knit sweater. This week I crocheted together all the resized panels from last week and said sweater is finally complete!

And because the entire process this week consists of only 1 stitch pattern, Entertainment Corn told a story to help pass the time.

For the past two weeks, I’ve been learning about the various ways to work with yarn. Basically, knitting and crocheting. Now it’s time to get work on the actual Aran Sweater and tailor it down to size.

Also, this week it was Entertainment Corn that showed up for some “delights.”

I want to size down an Aran Sweater I bought for myself but first I need to learn some new skills. Last week I dove into the world of knitting. This week I delved into the art of crochet.

Also, I experienced the struggles of Adulthood.

I bought myself a beautiful authentic, albeit overpriced, cable knit wool sweater. I need to size it down a bit for myself. I don’t want to hack it together either, so I have decided to take the time to learn proper knitting and do a good job of it. Turns out knitting is considerably harder than I had anticipated … surprise.

Poppa Plants also showed up again and was extra mean to me this time.

I loved the waxed cotton coat I sewed myself, but putting it on is a struggle. Between the fitted profile and the rigidity of the waxed cotton it gets difficult, so I decided to add a zipper to the side of the jacket.

We also meet Working Corn. He pays the bills around here. He also struggles to manage his emotions.

Last week I started working on transforming some t-shirts into a polo shirt. The goal was to finish said polo and … well … you’ll see.

What didn’t help either was that I had some slight sniffles.

I started working on transforming some tees into a polo shirt, but then realized I had made things more difficult for myself then they needed to me. Next I had to go grab another t-shirt from the thrift store to cut up so in the mean time, Poppa Plants took over and finished out the episode.
