The doctor’s visit went well. I’ve gained nearly 30 pounds (gasp!) and am measuring right on target. The baby appears to be average in size and weight. He’s not going to be the monster baby that I worried he would be. The doctor also confirmed my suspicions: he’s most definitely “dropped.” My cervix has started [...]


I’m pretty sure the baby has “dropped.” My tummy is sagging more than it used to and I feel a lot more pressure on my cervix. This makes things exceedingly uncomfortable. I can kiss a good night’s sleep goodbye. Some people have tried to reassure me that it’s just my body’s way of preparing me [...]


Between the elation I’m experiencing on account of my rapidly approaching due date and the distress I’m experiencing over learning that my mother has just been diagnosed with grade 3 breast cancer, I’m emotionally numb. This is going to be especially hard on her. Only a couple of years ago, she suffered from uterine cancer. [...]

    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.

    • 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.
