I finished a quick project just in time for my birthday: These are the fingerless mitts from Last Minute Knitted Gifts. Instead of the Noro Cash Iroha called for in the pattern, I used Cascade Lana D’Oro. The Alpaca content makes them super soft. I knit at a tighter gauge in order to shrink the [...]


What makes a grown woman jump up and down hollaring like a cheerleader on crack? Why a finished pair of hand-knitted socks: They turned out GREAT. I’m so thrilled with them. The only thing I might have changed would be the length of the cuff, which is a tad short, but that’s a minor, minor [...]


I can’t believe it.The schools are closed AGAIN on account of the crazy weather. I’m starting to forget what it’s like to go to work…not that I’m complaining. The kids and I have had fun playing in the snow: We built a snowman, who apparently is a skilled knitter of socks: Frosty turned the heel [...]

    • 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.
