Happy birthday, Sam! I’m still in a state of disbelief that you’re four years old now. How did time go by so quickly?  You’ve grown into the most charming, lovable and loving boy any family could wish for! I still remember the day you were born, as if it were yesterday…how I worked until 3pm [...]


I had an appointment with yet another doctor yesterday morning.  His theory is that I’m suffering from some sort of aggravated nerve in my neck and prescribed a bucket load of pills for me to take in addition to all the exercises my physical therapist is having me do. One of the drugs is an [...]

Blue yarn, that is Just look at the wonderful gifts my secret pal sent me: There’s two balls of a lovely wool blend yarn that will make a snuggly pair of mittens or hat …or maybe even a scarf, a package of Earl Grey tea (my favorite!), and some amusing cocktail napkins bearing the inscription [...]

    • 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.
