At the risk of sounding like a curmudgeon, I’m going to just come right out and say this week has sucked. Totally. 1) The pipes in the garage burst and the garage turned into an ice rink. I wish I still had my ice skates! Luckily, a plumber came over and took care of the [...]

I’m having a difficult time getting into the holiday spirit this year. I hate how aggressive people get around all the shopping centers here, especially on the roadways. I just don’t need all that extra stress. Who does, really??? It’s too bad, though, because I have a couple of children who are plenty excited about [...]


As I mentioned in my previous post, I sewed the sheath dress because it put me in mind of glamorous femme-fatales and I thought wearing such a dress would make me one. Even if it hadn’t been constructed out of a tacky old bed sheet, it wouldn’t have transformed me into that sort of woman. [...]

    • 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.
