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 [...]


Hi everyone! I’m back from the wilds of Montana where I literally jogged amidst rattlesnakes (there seems to be a bumper crop of them this year). After the first harrowing day out on the road, I decided to use my mother’s stationary bike instead…much safer…and terribly boring! I’m glad to be back in the big [...]


Before I hop on my plane this morning, I thought I’d share with you what I’ve accomplished on my umbrellas sweater: All I need to do is weave in a few ends, sew on a couple of buttons and give it a good blocking. I can’t wait until it’s cool enough outside to wear. I’m [...]

    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."

    • 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.
