Mother Nature decided to put me in my place. You see, I grew too cocky and planted peas and Swiss chard in the garden. Momma. N. reminded me who was boss by making it snow. Knitting has also kept me humble lately. Half way through the second sock, I realized I had been omitting an [...]

I signed Sam and Claire up for the Kids’ Artist Trading Card Swap hosted by Wise Craft and House on Hill Road. It seemed like a wonderful activity for two young enthusiastic artists; however, kids are kind of like wild animals in that their reactions to things are not always predictable. I was going to [...]


My family apologizes for monopolizing the time of a certain little fairy. Sam lost two (2) teeth in one (1) week and has two (2) more wiggly chompers. Robert had one (1) pulled since an old root canal went bad. Someday, he’ll get a fancy false tooth to fill in the gap, but until then, [...]

    Creativity is just connecting things. When you ask creative people how they did something, they feel a little guilty because they didn't really do it, they just saw something. It seemed obvious to them after a while. That's because they were able to connect experiences they've had and synthesize new things.

    • 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.
