Home Decor

Every spring, the home dec bug seems to bite me. It was no different this year. So, naturally, I spent a lot of time on pinterest looking at DIY home dec pins and found a wonderful heart mobile by BeingBrook. At first, I was going to make one for my craft room, like she did, [...]


I’ve been cleaning, decluttering and painting. The first room I tackled was my son’s. It was cluttered. The walls were dingy and the curtains were shabby–and not in a “chic” way. After much back-breaking work, his room has been transformed. I painted the walls with a Parker Paint color called “nomadic trail,” which seems like [...]


Just as I’m trying to use up odds and ends from my yarn stash, I’m trying to reduce my fabric scraps to a manageable number. What better way than to make a scrap quilt? This couldn’t be any scrappier if I tried. Even the paper I’m using for my foundation has been rescued from the [...]

    • 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.
