I did A LOT of knitting over the weekend. When the weather outside is frightful, and you’re feeling too rotten to do much else, knitting is the perfect distraction. I finished the second sleeve on the Sweater from Hell and wove in a lot of ends. It’s all ready to be (a) mended; (b) blocked; [...]

Sam contracted another wonderful case of pink eye, so I have to work from home today. My employers aren’t too happy with me missing so much work I’m going to take him to the doctor this morning, and hopefully he’ll prescribe the eye drops that worked so well last time. We need to beat this [...]

This season has been bringing us lots of delightful surprises. On Sunday, my friend, Kira, ended up being stranded in the Sea-Tac airport because bad weather prevented her flight from landing at her destination. So, I got to spend time with her that I otherwise wouldn?t have been able to do. Sam and I went [...]

    Jane Austen
    "Woman is fine for her own satisfaction alone. No man will admire her the more, no woman will like her the better for it. Neatness and fashion are enough for the former, and a something of shabbiness or impropriety will be most endearing to the latter."
    Jane Austen

    • 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.
