I believe a leaf of grass is no less than the journey-work of the stars. – Walt Whitman, In Philosophy It’s just so darned beautiful here lately. I want to go outside to play and am chafing at having to spend my days indoors. Two more days until freedom…


It’s surprising how quickly something that’s supposed to be a joyful occasion can turn into a total stress fest. It all started early Friday evening. One of the attorneys I work for came to me with an emergency project that just had to be completed that evening. I hauled a heavy file onto the bus [...]


I’m blatantly copying the format of Annie’s snapshot post from last week, because I enjoyed reading it and am just not feeling that original today. My apologies to Annie What I’m Reading: Broken for You by Stephanie Kallos. I’m about 2/3 the way through this book and am enjoying it thoroughly. The writing is excellent [...]

    • 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.
