A&S 100 Challenge - Day 5 - Eyelets

Today I am tackling eyelets on an unfinished front-lacing gown. I struggle with eyelets because I have a lot of pain in my hands and fingers. I tend to put buttonholes off because they hurt so much - so I always have plenty to do.
No automatic alt text available. Why does only the last eyelet ever turn out the way you want it?!


  1. After using the awl to open up the hole, I stick an aluminum knitting needle in the hole and wiggle it around to make it a little bigger. As I'm sewing the eyelet, I stuff the needle back in once in a while if the hole threatens to close back up on me. But yeah, they get better looking as I go. MS Fionna.

  2. I have a wooden knitting needle of the right thickness (that I have shortened) and use the same way!
