Yes, I made another pair. This pattern works for me–after a fair bit of tweaking. I don’t like jeans that are really tight, so added a bit of extra room in these. I over-corrected, though. The waistband is so loose that I can’t wear these pants without a belt. I sent them through a hot [...]

Just as I’m trying to use up odds and ends from my yarn stash, I’m trying to reduce my fabric scraps to a manageable number. What better way than to make a scrap quilt? This couldn’t be any scrappier if I tried. Even the paper I’m using for my foundation has been rescued from the [...]

The weather has turned downright chilly, and, as happens every year, I get an overwhelming desire to knit–and that’s just what I started doing. First, I finished a sweater for my son: This is Drive-Thru, by Wendy Bernard. I knit another version of this for my daughter a year or so ago. It’s an excellent, [...]

    • 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.
