2011 Summer Essentials

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 [...]


A. A little number I whipped up to wear on a dinner date with my husband tomorrow night. We’re celebrating eleven years of marriage. I’ll be sure to take photos! *** Yes, I’m taking a break from my blouse. I sewed a dress. And I sewed a t-shirt: I cut up an old t-shirt of [...]


I have memories of summers that were so hot all one could do is sit in a shady spot panting and fanning oneself and complaining about the heat. During one of those summers, I would have loved to have a pair of comfortable shorts like these. Instead, I had some terrible shorts that were too [...]

    • 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.
