Simplicity 2874. I cannot figure out the magic formula for making clothing Claire loves. She’d gladly wear her favorite red skirt every single day, but won’t touch a purple skirt I made just like it–and purple’s supposed to be her favorite color. Something about this little cherry print jumper really appeals to her. Perhaps it’s [...]

So, as I was putting the finishing touches on the Wee Wonderful Stitchettes pictured in the previous post, I got it into my head that it would be fun to stitch up something for one of the upcoming holidays…Halloween perhaps. I started sketching, and ended up with these: Hillary Lang’s influence is undeniable, which is [...]

Thank you for all of the positive vibes you sent our way for Sam’s surgery yesterday. It went very well and he’s healing up faster than I can believe. He actually wanted to ride his bike yesterday evening. Sadly, I had to tell him “no,” since he’s not supposed to do anything very physical for [...]

    • 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.
