My #MakeNine2021 was kind of “catastrophic”. Well, it wasn’t after all because I didn’t really care. It was my first Make Nine, and I made the list in just a day. So it’s no surprise I finished only two planned designs. That’s why I wanted to choose wiser for my #MakeNine2022 and started thinking and rethinking a few months ahead. The result of 6/9 finished designs is an achievement compared to the previous year! How did it go, and how do I like the finished projects?
Usually, when looking for a new sewing pattern that best matches my idea, I take refuge on Pinterest. I have hierarchically structured boards where I save patterns and clothes that other people sewed. However, I miss a list of companies where I could find some sewing patterns – because I have poor memory and always forget the web addresses. So I decided to create the list, not only for myself but for anyone who would be interested.
I had never been a big sock knitter until I discovered 9" circulars and forethought heel construction. With that discovery, I began a whole new adventure and the book 52 Weeks of Socks happened to be my map. I got the book for my birthday in June from my mum, who was looking at the photos as I was leafing through the pages. Then she pointed at the Hestia Slippers, and I immediately knew I had to knit them for her birthday in August.
Terranean refers to planet Earth, as I am a geographer. It also includes Tera, a diminutive of my name. And I am a knitter and sewer. That's what Terranean Stitch means.
