Archive for August, 2011

One thing is for certain. Life is never dull…and it’s expensive. I’m contemplating going back to work to help out with all the expenses, but of course I have to consider the cost of childcare and updating my wardrobe. At one time, I had little to no casual clothing. Then, I quit my job and [...]


I’ve been silent because it’s been hot and sunny here (yay!) and I’ve been sitting out on the back patio reading and relaxing. I’m going to enjoy every minute of this gorgeous weather while it lasts! In addition to trashy adventure novels, I’ve been devouring books on fashion. Tim Gunn is my new hero. Not [...]


Again, this is Burda 02-2009-118. I love how it turned out. The only thing I’d want to improve if I were to make it again would be to try to reduce the under-arm wrinkling. That seems to be a continual fitting challenge for me. I’ll make sorting that out one of my goals for 2011.

    • 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.
