I have a lot of blue fabric. I have a lot of blue yarn. I also have a lot of blue beads. Ironically, had you asked me what my favorite color was–and not all that long ago, I probably would have told you green or purple. Blue wouldn’t have crossed my mind. Looking through my [...]


I have been trying to be a more selfless craft-person of late, but the effort is starting to seem pointless. I spent some time making this floral barrette for my daughter, but she rips it out of her hair whenever she thinks I’m not looking. And then, the other day, I made eight scrunchies. She [...]


Me-Made June Update Thanks for all of the sympathy about my blues. I’m feeling a little better today, and, to help boost my spirits, I put on a skirt, blouse and cardigan…and some new hand-crafted jewelry. A few glittering beads can do wonders for a gal’s mood. Do me a favor and pretend you don’t [...]

    Don't think. Thinking is the enemy of creativity. It's self-conscious, and anything self-conscious is lousy. You can't try to do things. You simply must do things.

    • 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.
