One Week One Pattern appears to have been a smashing success! Created by Tilly and The Buttons and hosted this year by Handmade Jane, the challenge was to wear garments made from the same pattern for 7 days in a row. This year, the challenge lasted from Saturday Sept 6 through Friday Sept 12. Yes, that’s seven full days of wearing almost the same thing in row. Phew!!
I chose the Grainline Archer, which is quickly becoming one of my favorite TNT patterns. (I could have chosen my all-time most-used pattern, the Renfrew, but most of my Renfrews are long sleeved and not really suited for late summer weather.) I had 4 Archers going into the challenge and set a goal for myself of finishing the 5th one in time to wear for the last day of the challenge. As you can see from the collage above, I made it! Sort of (keep reading).
So let’s see what I wore all week!
How do I love the Archer? Let me count the ways… wait, actually I’d better start counting how many Archers I’ll have by this Saturday. It’s the start of One Week One Pattern 2014! Yes my dear readers, I, Carolyn of Allspice Abounds, will actually be participating in something online. Gasp! Horror! Hold on to your seats – the daily wet-hair selfies are on their way. 🙂
My goal is to have 5 completed Archers for the 7 days of the challenge. I’ve already got 4 done (one, two, three, and the fourth in the shockingly pink photos above – proper blog post coming soon). The fifth is just starting to take shape in some lovely Robert Kaufman chambray dot. And yeah, I put a bird on it.
The blog-post-writing has been a little light these days, but the sewing keeps on truckin’!
Are you participating in OWOP this year? What will you be wearing for 7 days in row?? 🙂
