It’s a beautiful day here today. The sun is shining brightly and there’s a pleasant breeze keeping things cool. It sure didn’t make going to work any easier. Luckily, I got off a bit early in order to go to the escrow agency where we signed our closing documents. Once that was done, I was [...]


We were there for only a short period of time, but the visit left us emotionally drained. Afterwards, Robert and I held one another. I cried. Robert was silent in that way men have when they are coping with something difficult. Where did we go that caused us to react this way? The childcare center [...]


I’ve experienced two extremes of human nature today: selfishness and generosity. Some of the calls I had to take today at work left me fuming. I don’t know where people get the idea that they deserve special treatment–but when they are treated just like everyone else, they throw the ugliest temper tantrums. One caller shouted [...]

    • 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.
