I took Alexandra’s advice and headed for bed last night. The contractions didn’t wake me up until 2 a.m. or so, but they passed and I fell back asleep until 5:30. So, no baby yet. I have to confess that I’m a little bit disappointed. I’m sooooooooooooo excited to meet this little girl. At the [...]


I don’t know if I’m in labor or not. I’ve had contractions all afternoon and they’re really regular, but not especially painful. Textbooks always make diagnosing labor pains seems like a piece of cake, but it’s never been that easy for me. I have a hard time telling when they begin and end. Anyway, I [...]


Still on bed rest without much new to report. The medication has helped control the contractions, so I haven’t dilated significantly since last week. My doctor told me that we’ll discontinue the medication next week, though, so baby Claire may make her appearance relatively soon. She’s fairly small right now. She weighs less than six [...]

    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.
