New sportswear: a Christmas Linden and two types of leggings

Here’s a little summary post for anyone with fitness resolutions and/or a need for leggings. That is definitely me and so a few weeks ago, on the spur of the moment, I decided to whip up a few pairs of leggings using Megan Nielsen’s Virginia leggings pattern, which I already made and loved, as well as a new-to-me pattern, which is free, and that is the Patterns for Pirates Peg Legs leggings (try saying that after a few beers).

New make: Patterns for Pirates Sunshine maxi dress

It strikes me there are virtually two separate worlds when it comes to knits as opposed to wovens. There’s some overlap of course, but I do really get the impression of being in a¬†parallel universe when it comes to knit fabrics. Much of this¬†has to do with children I think. There are lots of people whose primary interest is sewing clothes for their kids – and therefore are interested in a certain kind of cute, colourful knit fabric and pattern, as opposed to patterns and fabric for “adult” clothing. I’ve written a series of posts on knits and everytime I think about posting it, I discover some other aspect of this group and postpone it. I’ll get around to it one day. It’s so different from the woven community, it still surprises me all the time.
