There is something infinitely appealing about sewing with knits.
No need for any buttons, zippers, snaps...which means one less complicated step.
Its stretchiness allows for a little wiggle room, which comes in handy when you can't get your 2 year old to hold still long enough to get a really accurate measurement.
There always seems to be an old T-shirt lying about that can easily be remade into something new.
So many of the craft blogs out there make it seem easy to sew with knits. It makes me wonder what I am doing so wrong. I've even swallowed my pride enough to ask my mom how to make it work.
Part of my problem is my poor little sewing machine, the cheapest one available at Walmart that has gotten quite a bit of abuse lately. It just does not like knits! It does all sorts of weird things...things I cant even begin to describe.
My stubborn side is pushing me to keep trying until I master this skill. After much struggling, I have produced one (almost) successful knit outfit. (I won't tell you about the mountain of failures cluttering my craft area.)
