I had started on the lace edging to my shawl this past weekend and was making good progress toward the finish line, but decided to rip back to add on at least one more repeat. I think I might be knitting it a little bit tighter than I should be and don’t want the shawl [...]


I took this photo yesterday for Project Spectrum. I actually intended to knit something blue or grey for this project…but I can’t put down the (red) Leaf Lace shawl. I’m infatuated with it. Row 80 puts me at 30.4% completed, according to the Shawl Progress calculator. It looks a lot bigger than just 30.4% of [...]


It’s hard to be in the mood for love when you’re coughing like a tuberculosis victim and gulping down Dayquil as if it were the elixr of life. At least that’s my excuse for the way I reacted when Robert exclaimed “oh shoot,” after I wished him a happy Valentine’s day and told him I [...]

    • 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.
