I finished knitting my fair-isle yoke sweater and it has the potential of being my absolute most favorite sweater ever. There’s just one major problem, and, being as knocked up on cold medications as I am, I’m pretty sure I’m in no condition to make a rational decision about how to fix that problem. The [...]


I am sick, sick sick. And grouchy too. Luckily this cheers me up: and this too: My stranding looks a little rumple-y, but I think it will block out all right. It’s been awhile since I’ve worked any fair-isle and my technique is rusty. It’s fun though, and I’m eager to get some more practice [...]


I was too lazy to make my own coffee this morning (I know, I know…how hard is it to grind some beans and add hot water?), so I stopped off at the nearest coffee shop for a latte. While waiting for my drink, I read some newspaper clippings that were taped on the wall near [...]

    • 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.
