Robert’s co-workers chipped in and bought us two sets of the china I had picked out. Their generosity floored me! I have been preoccupied with visions of romantic candlelit dinners. Before that occurs, I will have to learn to cook. Somehow, it seems inappropriate to serve TV dinners on fine china.


Things are looking up since I last posted. My mom found a justice of the peace who will be able to perform our ceremony. It wasn’t easy though. Three of the four judges she contacted were booked up that weekend. I hope we’ll have a chance to speak to the judge to find out what [...]


I’m feeling blue today. Got home and listened to a message on our answering machine from Doreen. She was supposed to perform our wedding ceremony (9 days away) but her cat has one foot in the grave and she doesn’t want to leave it alone. Then I called my parents to explain this and they [...]

    Creativity is just connecting things. When you ask creative people how they did something, they feel a little guilty because they didn't really do it, they just saw something. It seemed obvious to them after a while. That's because they were able to connect experiences they've had and synthesize new things.

    • 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.
