Archive for August, 2003

We have been living in our current home for two-and-a-half years now. We live in an older neighborhood where many of the residents have been there for 25+ years. We’ve only met a few of our neighbors so far. Last night, a lady from across the street came to our front door with a HUGE [...]


I would sell my right arm for an oatmeal raisin cookie. The store downstairs only had ginger and chocolate chip. I’m settling for a ginger cookie (yummy, yes, but not what I CRAVE).


Two years ago, I gave birth to a beautiful baby boy who would change our lives immeasurably. Here he is on the day he was born: Here’s another photo of him from that first blessed month, which shows just how tiny and sweet he was: And here’s the big boy on his first birthday: Here [...]

    • 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.
