The recent snowfall inspired me to knit something to keep my fingers warm. I tried my hand at making mittens and what a fun project it turned out to be! These are the Very Cabley Mittens from To make them, I used one skein of Lamb’s Pride worsted. Not only are they very cabley, [...]

We had a storybook Christmas. It really couldn’t have been more perfect. Just a few days beforehand, it started snowing and it kept snowing and snowing and snowing. We hadn’t had this much snow since….oh 1996. The whole family spent lots of time outside playing in the stuff. 1. Frosty, 2. Kids in the Igloo, [...]

Snow and ice kept the kids (including Robert) home a lot more than expected this week. I stayed busy trying to feed and entertain them all. I sent them all out to play in the snow as often as possible, but they had to come in sometime to warm up. When they did, I set [...]

    • 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.
