My back and upper neck have seized up. I’m uncertain whether this is due to picking up heavy babies, knitting, or extended computer use at poorly set up work stations. Most likely, my agony was created by a combination of the three. I’m trying not to give into despair. According to my distorted perspective, remaining [...]


I had a lovely weekend visiting with my parents and playing with my kids. I’m a bit sad this morning, though, because Mom and Dad started on their long voyage back home. The weather on the mountain passes isn’t supposed to be all that great (think snow) and so I’m fretting a bit about their [...]


I really deserved a pity party on my actual birthday. There’s nothing quite like having the stomach flu/food poisoning to throw a damper on things. I was still in a little bit of funk about that yesterday–it’s not easy growing older! So, I decided to treat myself to something special. I bought myself a copy [...]

    • 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.
