I had really been looking forward to being at home alone. While I appreciated all the help I had been receiving from my mothers-in-law, I also found it hard to relax around them. I don’t know either one of them all that well and couldn’t help but worry about what they thought of me. This [...]


I went to work just as usual, without any idea that something momentous would occur. I wasn’t bothered by the mild contractions I was having since I’d been having similar pains on and off for the previous couple of weeks. They might have been stronger than those I experienced previously, but if they were, I [...]


Samuel Reid Nelson was born on August 10th. He was 19 inches long and weighed 7 pounds 4 ounces. He was very eager to make his appearance in this world. I’ll post the birth story soon–it’s a tale packed full of drama and humor (at least in retrospect. I wasn’t doing much laughing at the [...]

    Jane Austen
    "Woman is fine for her own satisfaction alone. No man will admire her the more, no woman will like her the better for it. Neatness and fashion are enough for the former, and a something of shabbiness or impropriety will be most endearing to the latter."

    • 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.
