Well we are halfway through Me Made May and so far so good. I pledged to wear at least one me made item a day, along with me made knickers and me knitted cardigans at least four days a week. I also decided not to repeat any outfits throughout the month, things are starting to get a little bit creative! I’ve been posting daily picks on Flickr and Pintrest but I thought I’d do a bit of a round up here too.
Day one: Colette Hawthorn
Day two: Grey Deer and Doe Plantain with Green Miette Cardigan
Day three: Green embroidered Grainline Scout
Day four: Silk Megan Nielsen Darling Ranges dress
Day five: Grey Deer and Doe Plantain and Purple Miette Cardigan
Day six: Denim Megan Nielsen Kelly Skirt with Green Miette Cardigan
Day seven: Grainline Plaid Archer shirt
Day eight: Colette Zinnia Skirt and Sorbetto top
Day nine: Grainline Blue Poppy Hemlock Tee (Blue Friday theme day!)
Day ten: By Hand London Anna Dress
Day eleven: Colette Rooibos dress and Ando Satturlund Marion Cardigan
Day twelve: Black Deer and Doe Plantain and By Hand London Victoria Blazer
Day thirteen: Buda elephant top with green Miette cardigan (again)
Day fourteen: Black Deer and Doe Plantain and purple Miette cardigan
and finally day fifteen: Tilly’s Love At First Stitch Clemence skirt
Phew! Me Made May has made me think a lot more carefully about what I wear, I had got into the habit of wearing jeans, plantains and Miettes all the time! It’s been nice to wear more skirts, I could really do with sewing a few more. My most me outfits so far have been my Darling Ranges and Anna Dresses, I just feel a lot more comfortable in dresses and I don’t have to thing about co-ordinating anything! I’ve also realised how much I love my Miettes so I definitely need to knit at least one more! I’ve just got to see if I can make it through the next two weeks without repeating anything! Hopefully the weather might warm up a bit so I can bring out more of my summer stuff! Are you taking part? Have you managed to stick to your pledge?

I love your cardigans! Very impressive :o)
Thank you! I’ve worn them so much, definitely need to knit some more!
I love each of your outfits! I so wish I trusted my knitting skills to make a whole sweater.
Hi, you should try the Miette pattern, it’s a really easy pattern and knits up quite quickly!
Love your cardi’s, I started a Miette and couldnt find the patience to see it through, maybe I’ll try again soon, your purple one is gorgeous!
Hi, you could always use the yarn to knit Andi’s new Myrna pattern, there’s a knitalong starting on June 1st as part of Lladybird and Andi’s outfitalong! The cardigan is really cute!
