There are so many things I’ve been meaning to write about lately, but just haven’t been able to find the right words. I wanted to describe how much I loved Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets — to talk about what qualities of the story enchanted me. I intended to top that off with [...]


The phone rang at 10 a.m. Robert stumbled out of bed to answer it. Some man with an annoyingly strained voice identified himself as Horgwarth Humpledinger. Robert was especially confused when Horgwarth Humpledinger didn’t want to speak with him, he wanted to speak with ME! It turned out that it was my father–what a funny [...]


Today I’d like to share some pieces by one of my favorite poets, Mary Oliver. Her writing has a meditative quality about it…like prayer…and attempts to decipher messages present in the natural world. A solitary, beautiful flower, a hummingbird paused in its flight, the change of seasons. Her poetry achieves a meaningfulness that so much [...]

    • February Lady Sweater 14 March 2014

      02/17/13 - It’s definitely on the small side. I would prefer more ease, but think I’ll get some wear out of this sweater. I also think it may have been a poor choice in project for me. While it was fun to knit, the FO reminds me a little too much of maternity wear. On to BIGGER and BETTER things :)

      02/12/13 - Unblocked, this fits my 8 yo daughter. Hopefully, it will fit me post-blocking. I don’t usually use this many pins when blocking a sweater, but I’m determined to boss my knitting around.

      If it fits me, when done, then that’s ok. If it fits my daughter when done, that’s ok too. If it fits neither of us, I’m going to be a sad little knitter.

      When I cast on for this, I was concerned about the super wash yarn growing a lot during the blocking process. Now that I’ve mostly knit the sweater, I’m concerned that it’s not going to grow enough. It’s rather small.
