I’ve been ill lately and just not in the mood to write here or *gasp* knit. What have I been doing in the meantime? Besides knitting? Well, I took the kitty to the vetrinarian for a check up. :catwalk: She got all her shots and was none too pleased about it. I suppose that’s the [...]


I’ve been steadily plugging away at Klaralund. Here are the front and back pieces. I’ve followed Allison’s lead and deliberately made sure the striping didn’t match up. I didn’t want to end up with “almost-but-not-quite” matching stripes. I thought that would look far worse than these happily mismatched pieces. I’ve got part of the first [...]


As promised, here are some photos of Claire modeling her new cardigan:    A la Fluffa, I’m showing you a still-as-a-mannequin shot and a dancing shot (or what would be dancing if she could stand up). As always, click on the thumbnails to see larger versions of the photos. Unfortunately, this is the time of [...]

    • 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.
