This morning just didn’t start out well. I got up late, missed my regular bus and consequently arrived downtown a half-an-hour late. Trying to make up time, I ran straight on past the coffee bar where I usually get a latte before continuing on to work. I was even more upset at being late because [...]


I had a nice little vacation from the computer. It was not something that I had planned beforehand. It had occurred to me that I had been spending quite a bit of time online and should probably take a break–but I had not actually planned on doing it. No, the break began shortly after a [...]


I have been reading a really captivating novel based upon the Robin Hood legend, The Lady of the Forest by Jennifer Roberson. While I anticipated the usual blend of intrigue, chivalry, adventure, and courtly romance, I wasn’t prepared for the emotional force of this book.

    • 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.
