Me-Made-May: Day 31; Me-Made Clothes and Radishes! Me-Made-May stirred me up into a frenzy of sewing and knitting. During the month, I sewed a pair of corduroy jeans, a dress, a skirt and a top. I also knit all the pieces for my Climbing Vines sweater (ravelry link), but didn’t manage to sew it together [...]


The fact that “Me-Made-May” is winding down is both a happy and sad thing for me. I’m going to miss the interaction with other sewists in the flickr group. I’m NOT going to miss the daily photo shoots, since they are a big drain on my time and have forced me realize that I’m a [...]


I finished a new top today! This is Simplicity 4589, which is similar to the Built By Wendy pattern I mentioned not too long ago. I decided to use this pattern instead, since it has more ease than the BBW top, which is a good thing for my not-so-youthful figure. Just to test it out, [...]

    • 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.
