We had a busy but enjoyable weekend. On Saturday, I realized my dream of visiting the Skagit Valley tulip fields: The second photo was spotlighted on Utata yesterday! We lucked out with some glorious spring sunshine, but the chilly winds cut short Robert’s and the kids’ exploration of the fields. The kids wanted to stick [...]


We celebrated Easter a little differently this year. Our kids had already enjoyed an Easter egg hunt at daycare, so we decided to enjoy the weekend doing something else: we went to the zoo. A brief glimpse of sunlight tricked us into thinking we’d escape the rainshowers predicted in the weather forecast. It might surprise [...]


Some of our micro greens are developing their first set of true leaves, which indicates they’re ready for harvesting. Robert and I couldn’t resist their allure. We plucked a couple from the garden, dusted them off and popped them in our mouths. Yummm! They’re packed with flavor! We should probably start another crop of micro [...]

    Creativity is just connecting things. When you ask creative people how they did something, they feel a little guilty because they didn't really do it, they just saw something. It seemed obvious to them after a while. That's because they were able to connect experiences they've had and synthesize new things.

    • 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.
