I finished the first of the Bottom’s Up Bucket Hats I have planned for the knit along! I used Brown Sheep Cotton Fleece in Mariner Blue. The yarn is a tad bit too soft and because of that, the hat is kind of floppy. But that doesn’t really matter, since my son loves his snazzy [...]


I’m so excited about how close I am to finishing Elfin: I just have to finish the cap on the second sleeve and knit the ruffles for the left front band. It’s actually quite a bit more work, but now that the end is in sight, I’ll be knitting as if possessed. One thing is [...]


Despite all the grief it’s been giving me, Elfin really is pretty, isn’t it? I guess beauty exacts a harsh price, i.e. knitting thousands of stitches with wickedly fine and hairy Kid Silk Haze. (Sorry for the goofy photo. I was holding Claire in one arm, balancing the sleeve on the other and trying to [...]

    • 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.
