Famous Sign This steadily glowing neon sign draws people from far and wide into Pike Place Market, known as “the heart of Seattle.” It’s an apt metaphor, for the place positively throbs with activity. Folks from all walks of life course throughout its arcades: farmers, florists, fishmongers, artisans, street performers, chefs, city dwellers shopping for [...]


  So far, it’s been pretty easy to squeeze in at least one meal per week featuring local food. With my busy schedule, the hardest part has been taking time out to actually cook something, rather than resorting to frozen dinners or pre-washed salads straight from the grocery store. This weekend, I baked rhubarb muffins, [...]


I went for a walk in the park: Where I watched my son blow on dandelions: and climb trees: and as we left, I stopped to admire the azaleas:

    • 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.
