Before I hop on my plane this morning, I thought I’d share with you what I’ve accomplished on my umbrellas sweater: All I need to do is weave in a few ends, sew on a couple of buttons and give it a good blocking. I can’t wait until it’s cool enough outside to wear. I’m [...]


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 [...]


I just finished knitting the colorwork portion of the Umbrellas sweater, designed by Joji Locatelli. It’s such a charming pattern and I’m enjoying the process quite a bit.

    • 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.
