I think I’m about to go nuts fitting my capris, so I’m going to subject you to a picture of my backside. Lucky you! hahaha These wrinkles are a normal part of trying to create a covering for a 3-dimensional object that moves, right? Right? Or, wrong? Are they indicative of fit problems? I need [...]


The Summer Essentials Sew Along will be starting up in a few short days. I’m trying to hammer out a plan. Here’s what I’ve got so far. Sun & Rain Hat Poolside Pretties: Anything that cools or dries you off when there‚Äôs lots of sun and water around. One and two-piece swimsuits, swimsuit cover-ups, surf [...]


I cut out this skirt one year ago, stuffed it into a ziplock and forgot all about it, until Sew Weekly challenged us to create an embellished garment. I knew that if I actually wanted to complete this challenge, I’d need to keep the garment as simple as possible so I’d actually have time to [...]

    • 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.
