Archive for August, 2004

I start out the weekend with high expectations about all the knitting I’ll be able to accomplish, but never quite manage to do as much as I hoped. Taking care of the kids and doing all the chores that were neglected throughout the week eats up a lot of time! I didn’t make any progress [...]


Being impatient, I cast on for Klaralund, but ended up ripping it all out once I got past the garter stitch section. I can’t make up my mind about what size I should knit. Several people suggested that I measure the finished size of a sweater that fits me the way I like it to…unfortunately, [...]


I laid out a number of my current projects on the dining room table, window sill and sideboard, and draped one across Claire’s highchair so I could get a sense of where I was at with all of them. One look left me feeling completely overwhelmed. I turned to my husband and said, “look at [...]

    • 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.
