Archive for June, 2007

I wouldn’t care to repeat this weekend ever again. It wasn’t completely horrible, but the awful things outweighed the pleasant things by a significant amount. Late Friday night, Sammy woke up and was terribly sick. He could only sleep for a couple of hours between each episode, and of course, Robert and I ran around [...]


I’m supposed to be packing, but it’s just not any fun at all, so I’m allowing myself to be distracted by anything and everything. I’m sure you can see why these cherries distracted me. They’re so sweet and luscious! Truly the essence of summer. I got a craving for them after seeing a photo on [...]


Here Claire is looking at me as if to say, “what’s up, mommy?” I had to stop for a moment to catch my breath and tally up all that’s been happening. It’s ironic that the most interesting and busy times of my life are precisely the times that allow me the least freedom for writing [...]

    • 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.
