One refreshing thing about the Brontë’s work is that it puts average people on center stage. They aren’t beautiful; they aren’t especially talented or intelligent; and they certainly aren’t affluent. Their lack of perfection doesn’t prevent us from sympathizing with them; on the contrary, because we are gifted with special knowledge of their thoughts and [...]

Oooh!!! I just found a great recording of one of my favorite Lemonheads’ songs. It’s called The Outdoor Type. I spent a lot of time in Missoula, Montana where most of the population is bent on convincing you of their prowess in the wild. Many of them certainly couldn’t rub two sticks together to start [...]

Today the postman brought us the proofs for our wedding album. I experienced many strange sensations looking through them. I hardly recognized myself. In most of the pictures, I wore a dreamy expression upon my face. It made me look much prettier than I’m accustomed to looking. Robert was surprised by how he looked too. [...]

    Don't think. Thinking is the enemy of creativity. It's self-conscious, and anything self-conscious is lousy. You can't try to do things. You simply must do 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.
