My little girl turned one today! This year has gone by incredibly fast. We are so blessed to have this beautiful, happy baby in our lives.

I took the bull by the horns and finished up the second sleeve for Audrey: It was a real struggle for me to knit the 2×2 ribbing with Calmer, a very slippery yarn. I use the ring finger on my right hand to regulate the tension of the yarn. By Saturday morning, when I was [...]

I’ve signed up. I’ve got the yarn. I’ve got the pattern. I’m chompin’ at the bit to start knitting my sweet little wrap cardi from Rebecca 29: I’ve even knit a couple of swatches which indicate that I’ll need to go all the way up to US 9 needles (the pattern calls for US 7 [...]

    Jane Austen
    "Woman is fine for her own satisfaction alone. No man will admire her the more, no woman will like her the better for it. Neatness and fashion are enough for the former, and a something of shabbiness or impropriety will be most endearing to the latter."
    Jane Austen

    • 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.
