My kids and I have been learning a lot about environmental concerns and taking baby steps to lessen our own impact on the planet ( reducing, reusing and recycling). Sam is especially worried about the melting ice caps and how that affects the polar bears. He likes polar bears. Claire drew fish food, because fish [...]

I’ve been completely obsessed over trying to sew a dress to wear to my sister-in-law’s wedding next month. It has turned out to be two or three times as much work as I anticipated. Here’s the first dress (which I’m embarrassed to show you): Oh. my. god. It’s soooooooooo terrible. I look pregnant. I love [...]

My kids and I have been trying out some of the ideas for creative time Amanda Soule describes in her excellent book, The Creative Family. Just wait until you see their awesome hand painted placemats!

    • 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.
