Wearing all homemade garments for a month and photographing them was a valuable exercise for me. Not only did it help me spot gaps in my wardrobe, looking at outfit pictures helped me better see how things actually looked on me. For one thing, I decided that I’d like to make more blouses since I [...]

BurdaStyle released a new pattern for a springtime frock. It’s very pretty! I just wonder if I’d have trouble keeping it up on my narrow shoulders. Isn’t this scallop-hemmed skirt cute?

    • 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.
