I guess there is such a thing as over-doing it. After a couple of hectic weeks, I’ve been doing little else than lounging in a comfy chair reading silly novels and watching silly movies. Well, that’s not entirely true. The school year is over, so the kids are at home full-time, which means a lot [...]


I hope the lovely Ali of The Wardrobe, Reimagined, didn’t think I was ignoring her when she tagged me in a game of eight questions. As I mentioned yesterday, I was up to my eyeballs in the duties of motherhood and being a good hostess to house guests. I used to hate playing tag with [...]


Oh. My. Gawd. I’m so exhausted after this past week. I just threw a big bash for my husband’s 40th birthday. On one of the only sunny and warm days of this month, we hosted a barbecue and badminton tournament in our backyard. Friends and family came from near and far to wish him well [...]

    • 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.
