According to “people in the know,” cozies, such as the DKNY Cozy, are going to be all the rage this season. Now, I’m not generally one to sport fashion fads, having given that up sometime around the seventh grade, but this one appealed to me. How fun is it to be able to change your [...]

So, on a lark–and because I can’t really get enough of talking about sewing–I volunteered to manage one of the contests at Pattern Review and the Fall 2009 Wardrobe Contest was placed into my care. There’s been a fantastic response so far and I’m hoping more people will sign up. Even if the number of [...]

Call me Ahab. Let me introduce you to my Moby D*ck: This is New Look 6407, which comes highly recommended by a whole slew of seamstresses on Pattern Review. The pattern has been swimming in the great ocean of my stash for many years now, and, since it’s marked “easy,” I thought I’d be able [...]

    • 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.
