Four years ago today, Robert and I were married at my parents’ home in Montana. It was such a beautiful day, despite the smoke from all the forest fires burning nearby (my parents were evacuated from their home only a couple of days after the ceremony–We’re lucky we didn’t have to cancel the wedding!) Here [...]


I know I have to knit something when images of it continue to float through my brain long after I first discovered the pattern. Recently, that has been happening with Klaralund, a pattern from the new Noro book by Cornelia Tuttle Hamilton: Besides the beauty of Noro Silk Garden, what I find attractive about this [...]


During my recent excursion to Bainbridge with the PurlyGirls, Jessica jokingly commented that I would be better off if I took a Xanax (or drank a couple of gin and tonics) before knitting. Her funny comment got me to thinking about how I strive for perfectionism with my knitting. Is it a good or bad [...]

    • 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.
