First thing Saturday morning, Claire and I headed to Acorn Street to check out the sidewalk sale and to exchange some yarn I had purchased recently for something that I liked a little more. Guess who we ran into while we were there? Several Purlygirls, including Jessica! After browsing through the shop, we all headed [...]


I saw this list (click on “more” below) on Kerstin’s blog and thought it would be a fun way to review what I’ve read. At one time in my life, I was an avid reader. I haven’t done much lately because I’m just too busy with kids and work. As Kerstin points out, knitting is [...]


I slogged through all of the moss stitch on the back of my “Air” cardigan this weekened. It looks pretty darn good, if I don’t say so myself :glasses: I am surprised by how long the moss stitch section is, though, and wish there were a picture of the back of the cardigan in the [...]

    Creativity is just connecting things. When you ask creative people how they did something, they feel a little guilty because they didn't really do it, they just saw something. It seemed obvious to them after a while. That's because they were able to connect experiences they've had and synthesize new things.

    • 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.
