I’ve been sewing like a mad woman trying to get ready for Me Made May. I’ve cut out bits and pieces to make three skirts, one pair of pull-on pants (nicely shaped…not like sweat pants at all), and a blouse. I’m also trying to finish a fleece jacket and a pair of corduroy jeans. corduroy [...]


I can’t believe how fast time is going by. It seems like a week or two can pass in the blink of an eye (I’m a sucker for cliches). I’m particularly conscious of the fleeting nature of time right now, because I plan on participating in Me Made May, a challenge to wear homemade clothing [...]

    Jane Austen
    "Woman is fine for her own satisfaction alone. No man will admire her the more, no woman will like her the better for it. Neatness and fashion are enough for the former, and a something of shabbiness or impropriety will be most endearing to the latter."

    • 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.
