Every once in awhile, we all need some affirmation that what we do has been worthwhile. I received that affirmation in abundance today. I wore Elfin to the office for the first time and people fawned all over it. I’ve been on :cloud9: ever since. (I really should take a new picture of it. I [...]

I admit this doesn’t look very impressive, but I’m proud of myself for knitting something without using a pattern, so I’m posting a couple of pictures of it:   Poor, sleepy husband, caught unawares with a funky hat on his head and a camera in his face… I’m still trying to decide if this hat [...]

I’ve finished the first of my holiday knitting projects: This is the Sophie Bag from Magknits. I did a couple of things differently than specified by the pattern. First, it said to graft the handles to the bag. Now, from a previous felting experience, I knew I would have trouble keeping my sewing loose enough [...]

    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.
