Today I?m celebrating my 29th birthday for the third time. :birthday: On this special day, I?ve been reflecting on some of my blessings: 1. My loving husband who is taking me to the opera tonight despite the fact that he does not share my enthusiasm for it. (We?re seeing Carmen!) 2. My remarkable son who [...]


Doesn’t this sweet little :angel: deserve a special gift? …especially since he came home last night with a wonderful report from his daycare teacher. Sam may be a :devil: at times, but he has a very definite angelic streak through him as well. A little girl in his class was struggling to get a toy [...]


Is it just me, or are people really irritating? I have little patience for the following: 1. Last night, a truck pulled up behind us and waited as we loaded our groceries in the trunk of our car. It seems the occupants desperately wanted our parking spot. Advantage to them? They would be two spots [...]

    • 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.
