Just called the landlord of our former home. She had the nerve to accuse us of scorching the hardwood floors by turning the baseboard heaters up too high. Ha! I distinctly remember pointing out the burn marks when we did our preliminary walk-through. She’s looking for an excuse not to refund our deposit. What a [...]


My god, I’m exhausted. Robert and I spent the day cleaning out the kitchen and garage of our old house. I feel tainted by all the cobwebs and clouds of dust we stirred up. Ewww! I can hardly imagine anything worse than that garage! We made two trips to the dump and one trip to [...]


Moving is a pain in the rear. I’m flat out exhausted. As soon as I get a little more energy, I’ll write about the whole ordeal…and hopefully post a picture or two of our new home. It’s terrific. In the meantime, I’m going to continue browsing through the humane society pages. I’m eager to adopt [...]

    • 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.
