Christmas was enjoyable for us this year. Robert?s step-mother arrived last Tuesday and has been spending her days with Sammy. She also proved to be a god-send on Christmas eve by preparing the meal for us. I had the menu planned out, but between sleeping only three hours the previous night and having to work [...]


Thank you for all your kind responses to my post about Robert’s heart problems. He’s had a second spell, but didn’t think it lasted long enough to merit a trip to the emergency room again. Both of us are anxious for him to see his doctors this week and hope they can shed some light [...]


When I got home last night, I noticed that Robert?s truck was gone. I assumed that he had run an errand to the hardware store or somewhere similar. This assumption seemed to be confirmed by the note he had left on the coffee table stating that he?d ?be back in a bit.? So, I didn?t [...]

    • 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.
