Here’s another project I fished out of the attic recently. It was shamefully close to being finished. I have NO idea why I put it aside. The only theory I’ve been able to come up with is that these cats look an awful lot like Zora, the kitty I was forced to give up because [...]

I started sewing these pajamas for my son ages ago, but put them aside in frustration. For the life of me, I could not understand the instructions for creating the button placket and was scared of sewing the buttonholes. I found the partially finished PJs when I was cleaning out my attic storage space recently. [...]

1. Apron, 2. Domestic Bliss On a whim, I bought a copy of In Stitches by Amy Butler. Although it’s full of many wonderful projects, I knew right away that I was going to make the apron. It seemed like the perfect project for getting my toes wet with sewing. After all, it’s just a [...]

    Steve Jobs
    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.
