I fully intended to show you a pair of finished jeans by now, but a fairly serious problem arose: blue blood. That is, the dye used in this denim will NOT stop bleeding and rubbing off onto other fabrics. I have read elsewhere that dye bleeding from dark denims is not necessarily associated with poor [...]


I practically skipped home Friday evening, excited for the weekend and a chance to work on Tiramisu, a Cake Patterns design, which I had just downloaded. Indeed, after taking care of dinner, I promptly set about taping the pattern together and reading the instructions. I even washed the fabric I planned to use. At that [...]


I never leave home without some little project in my handbag to work on should the opportunity present itself. Those opportunities happen more often than one might expect. Stuck in standstill traffic? Waiting in a seemingly endless line? Fretting over your son who might have broken his hand and waiting for doctors in the ER [...]

    • 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.
