Yesterday, some of my knitting friends and I attended Skacel‘s 25th Anniversary. If you’re a knitter, you might be familiar with their fabulous Addi needles. All of us expected to have a nice time, but we were bowled over by how extravagant the celebration was. The company had set up a carnival/German-style beer garden in [...]


Parking is far too expensive in downtown Seattle for me to justify driving to work every day, so I take advantage of one of the benefits offered by my employer: a bus pass. Public transportation can be a hassle at times. With all the stops figured in, it can take longer than driving. Depending on [...]


Did ya miss me? I can’t blame you if the answer is “no,” but I’ve missed you! It’s not so easy for me to indulge in my favorite hobbies like sewing and knitting because I’m working full-time and my children are going through some developmental phases that require lots of attention and TLC.

    • 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.
