I was tired of looking at pictures of my backside, so I decided it was high time to add something new here on my blog. Unfortunately, all I have for you is a picture of me on a bad hair day. My brand new t-shirt is pretty snazzy, so hopefully we can all focus on [...]

I’m knocking off projects left and right here. This stage is almost as much fun as the starting new projects phase–at least when things go right. I’m happy to report that my jeans are a success (with one or two little problem spots over which I refuse to obsess). As is the case with anything [...]

It was a near thing. I almost gave up on finishing this dress. The last few days before my brother’s wedding just flew by. In between end-of-the-year school activities, visits from out-of-towners, shopping, wrapping presents, and packing, there just wasn’t much time for sewing. Next time I’m in a rush, I now know better than [...]

    Don't think. Thinking is the enemy of creativity. It's self-conscious, and anything self-conscious is lousy. You can't try to do things. You simply must do 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.
