We desperately need a babysitter. Why are good ones so hard to come by? The lady who usually takes care of Sam can’t do it anytime soon since her house caught on fire and she and her family are living in a hotel until the place is cleaned up and the insurance money comes through. [...]


I’m following Robyn’s example by posting my favorite entries from the past year. These are in no particular order. If I had to identify one post which you just can’t miss, it would be Out of This World–but I’ll let you be the judge. Where’d I Put that Cane of Mine? My Valentine Catastrophe Surpassing [...]


People have been in a tizzy over the weather forecast. We?re supposed to have very strong winds blowing through here any time now. People must be really bored to get this worked up over a winter storm. It?s not as if a hurricane is coming or Mount Saint Helens is starting to rumble again. I [...]

    • 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.
