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 [...]


A couple of years ago, I found some deliciously soft jersey at the thrift store. I bought it and sewed it into a nice t-shirt. Since then, I have hardly worn it. Why? This shade of beige makes me look about as healthy as Gollum. Dye to the rescue! Add an old patch I had [...]

If you were to judge by my recent posts, you might think all I did was eat, breathe and dream about sewing. You’d be almost right; however, I have been squeezing some other things into my days recently. I had ordered a spinning wheel from New Zealand–a wonderful Ashford Traveller, which I had been waiting [...]

    Jane Austen
    "Woman is fine for her own satisfaction alone. No man will admire her the more, no woman will like her the better for it. Neatness and fashion are enough for the former, and a something of shabbiness or impropriety will be most endearing to the latter."
    Jane Austen

    • 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.
