I’m toying with the idea of designing my own vest. Yes, I’m probably nuts, because my math skills aren’t the best, but I figure a vest is easier than a complete sweater. After all, it doesn’t have arms (which is really good considering how long it’s taking me to knit the darn sleeves for Cassidy). [...]


I was so very proud of myself earlier this year when I decided to stop buying so many books and start borrowing them from the public library. Since only one of the adults in this house has a income-generating job, our budget is pretty tight. We’re not struggling, mind you, but even a millionaire would [...]

It’s hard to feel too terribly grumpy when the sun finally breaks through what once seemed like an impenetrable wall of grey clouds. The sun is what saved Robert from a battery of guilt trips after he confessed he had forgotten my birthday–and that he had promised to go out with some friends tonight. Ordinarily, [...]

    • 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.
