I’m suffering from winter doldrums at the beginning of summer. This is crazy. And depressing. I shouldn’t still be wearing sweaters and jackets in mid June. I know I keep harping on about Mother Nature, but it’s impacting my enthusiasm for Me-Made June. I wore the same outfit two days in a row. Are you [...]


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 [...]

    • 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.
