Happy Halloween, everyone! It’s been a crazy busy morning over here. My son decided, just before bedtime last night, that he wanted to take one of his Star Wars Lego ships to school for show-and-tell. Naturally, it was in pieces–hundreds of tiny, hard-to-find pieces–when he came up with this idea. So, he got up at [...]


I make a lot of things for my daughter, because there are thousands upon thousands of cute patterns for girls’ outfits. For me, it’s often less tempting to make something for two of the important guys in my life, simply because there just aren’t that many exciting patterns for guy things (especially when you get [...]


Like its namesake, the heroine of Shakespeare’s tragic romance, my Juliet exhibited suicidal tendencies. It tried to end its life on two occasions. The first attempt occurred one night, when I was heading out to knit with some friends. I packed up my yarn and needles, walked out the front door and across the yard [...]

    • 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.
