Thanks for all of your supportive comments in response to my last post. I also appreciated all the suggestions you gave me for creating a work wardrobe. Keep the suggestions coming! Love them. I’m still reeling from how crazy last week was. On the same day I sent the kids back to school, I had [...]


Vogue 1250 has taken the sewing blog world by storm in recent months, and for good reason. It’s constructed out of three pieces of fabric, goes together easily and looks great on everyone. You can see how it flatters a variety of figures by looking through the reviews posted at Pattern Review. I can’t get [...]


I feel like a new person! Even though I’ve used a lot of styling product in my hair, it just won’t do the cute “messy” look I was trying to create. My hair is too fine and straight. That’s ok, though, I really like how it looks and am happy I tried this. It’s refreshing [...]

    • 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.
