Ashley’s This or That. 1. Soap operas or operas? I love operas. My favorites include Don Giovanni, The Barber of Seville, Madame Butterfly and Carmen. 2. Flowers or chocolates? 3. Kiwi or strawberries? Strawberries! When I was pregnant with Sam, I couldn’t get enough strawberries. I ate them whole and drank them up in virgin [...]


Yesterday was my 30th birthday. It wasn?t as traumatic an experience as I had imagined it would be. My memory is as sharp as it ever has been. My hands aren?t arthritic. My vision is no worse than it was a year ago. I have very good hearing. I have (just) enough energy to work [...]


Cheryl inspired me to try listing 100 things about me. 1. My maiden name was Stanton. 2. I did not change my last name when I got married. 3. Nevertheless, everybody on both sides of my family refers to me as Mrs. Nelson. 4. Some family members mis-spell my first name. I do not spell [...]

    • 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.
