Just before I went back to work full-time, I whipped up a version of Simplicity 4074 using an Ann Klein Fabric. While I was pleased with the results, I didn’t quite realize what a magical thing it was. I wear that dress ALL. THE. TIME. It’s comfortable, looks classy and can be worn with or [...]

I’ve neglected my blog for quite some time, but have been fairly active on Ravelry and flickr. Since I’ve been gone from this site for son long, I thought I’d show you some of the knitting projects I’ve finished during the past few months. One of my favorites is the “Scare Isle” tam from knitty.com: [...]

    Creativity is just connecting things. When you ask creative people how they did something, they feel a little guilty because they didn't really do it, they just saw something. It seemed obvious to them after a while. That's because they were able to connect experiences they've had and synthesize new 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.
