I’m over my panic attack. I feel so silly for letting that happen to me. Crafting is supposed to be fun, but I worked myself up into a real frenzy by deciding to make most of my holiday gifts this year–and then planning too many presents for each person. I’m cutting back a little, taking [...]


Help. I have too many projects underway right now. I feel like I’m drowning in yarn and fabric and I’m making very little headway on anything because I keep flitting from project to project. I really need to sit down and F.O.C.U.S. I don’t even know where to begin telling you about my sewing projects. [...]


This is what has been depriving me of computer time for the past few days: Yes, I finally finished this quilt, which is destined to be a Christmas present for my son. It took me a little over a year to complete Why so long? Hunting down the perfect fabric for each part occupied a [...]

    • 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.
