I’ve been cleaning, decluttering and painting. The first room I tackled was my son’s. It was cluttered. The walls were dingy and the curtains were shabby–and not in a “chic” way. After much back-breaking work, his room has been transformed. I painted the walls with a Parker Paint color called “nomadic trail,” which seems like [...]


I fell in love with Vintage Modern Knits the first time I spied it on the bookstore shelf. It’s an incredible collection of designs by Kate Gagnorn Osborn and Courtney Kelley. On average, I like maybe one or two designs in a knitting book; I plan to knit no less than seven designs from this [...]

    • 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.
