This really made me laugh! A couple of years ago, I drove from a small town in Montana to Seattle, Washington, where I moved in with Robert. After getting settled in, I decided it was time to get a Washington state driver’s license. That proved to be more difficult than I thought, since I had [...]


My insecurity always increases ten-fold whenever I venture into a hair salon. The reaction is natural enough I suppose. First of all, it’s hard for me to not feel dumpy whenever I find myself in the midst of many fadishly dressed men and women. I’m still wearing pull-on pants and a t-shirt with spit-up on [...]


I tried working on an applique quilt this afternoon and between the baby crying and the cat jumping on my lap demanding attention, I didn’t get much done and what was done was done poorly. While I wasn’t exactly happy with the results, I’m proud to say that I didn’t throw a temper tantrum or [...]

    • 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.
