Yesterday’s dinner exceeded my expectations. The turkey was juicier and more flavorful than any I’ve had in years. The mashed potatoes weren’t too lumpy and the pumpkin pie was just right. I had to call my mother several times during the day to ask her advice on how to prepare one thing or another. It’s [...]


Robert insisted that we stay home this year for Thanksgiving. It will be the first time I’ll prepare the feast on my own. In years past, my mother has overseen preparations for the meal. She’s unable to be here this year, so I’ll just have to wing it on my own. It’s kind of exciting. [...]


I’m sick and tired of being sick and tired. I just can’t seem to get rid of this cold. It’s progressed from a headache and stuffy nose to a fever and sore throat and finally to a horrible cough. Being sick is bad enough, but being sick and having to care for a baby is [...]

    Steve Jobs
    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. It seemed obvious to them after a while. That's because they were able to connect experiences they've had and synthesize new things.

    • 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.
