In which our heroine gets a serger

July 26, 2010

Yes, you read that correctly.  I can haz Viking serger.

The lovely machine hails from Sew Creative, a little shop in Parkersburg, WV owned and managed by my dear aunt and uncle.  It’s a Huskylock s15, which apparently is the same thing as a Pfaff Hobbylock 2.o.

So far I haven’t taken the serger out of its box yet.  I’m working on a gift for a friend that doesn’t require any serging.  I don’t want to talk about the details of the gift because, on the extreme off chance that my friend reads this blog, it would ruin the surprise.  Now everyone who knows me in “real life” is wondering whether a gift is headed their way.  No.  Well, probably not.

But as soon as the gift is completed, it’s off to the exciting world of knitwear for me!  I have a lot of ideas.  I’ll be hitting the Jalie patterns pretty hard.  So long they have taunted my with their “requires 35% stretch knits.”  No more!  And Kwik Sew, you should look out, too.

Here are just a few of the ideas floating around in my head:

Jalie 2919 made out of wool jersey.

Vogue 1194 made out of a soft, drapey knit–maybe Swiss 4-way stretch knit from Gorgeous Fabrics?  (Would that waistline make me–or anyone–look pregnant, though?  Discuss.)

First up, though, are some basic tops made with Vogue 8634, Vogue 8151 and jersey fabric I already have in my stash.
