When I first looked outside yesterday morning I was shocked. There was snow everywhere! We usually don’t get a lot of snow in Seattle, which is one of the things I miss from my youth in Montana and Wyoming. It kept coming down all day long and the kids were ecstatic. I had a hard [...]

My latest attempt at crochet caused some scratching of heads and speculation about the nature of the piece, similar to inkblots in the Rorschach test. I suppose it isn’t obvious what I’m making: What do you think that’s going to be? If you’re like my son, your first guess would be a armless and legless [...]

    • 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.
