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.

Entertainment Corn also showed up.

I have spent the past month both learning about knitting & crocheting as well as working on this sweater. This is the final product.

Looking at the two photos, the seams are definitely more pronounced, but then isn’t the fit just perfect?! I am really happy with it and look forward to being toasty warm for many winters to come.
