Hi hi hi!

Ohai. I’m blogging again. A LOT. I hope it’s not obnoxious. I’m just trying out a routine that might work a little better for me… Bear with me!

Anyway! I wanted to post a quick update of my “majorly modified Mary Jane” because I was describing all the mods to a friend and she remarked, “Um, it sounds like you’re knitting an entirely different sweater.” And I kind of am. I’m tracking all the changes on my Ravelry project page, but really, I’m SIMPLIFYING everything, so my version is pretty easy.

I omitted the increases at the shoulders because I didn’t want the poofy sleeves, I omitted the decorative stitching on the body, and I’m starting 2×2 ribbing just below the bust. And I LOVE IT!!!

Also, I had a bit of shopping frenzy at JoAnn yesterday. I’m telling myself I can’t buy ANY MORE FABRIC until I use this all up (or, most of it) but at 30% off, some of this stuff was just too good to pass up.

(For those of you who don’t live near a JoAnn megastore, here is a link to the Retro Owls fabric, and here is the super cute turquoise birds & flowers fabric. Swoon.) (I can probably dig up the others if you want those, too.)

    Frequency & staying in the blogging “groove” is what keeps me going & what builds a readership, I think.

    Glad to see you’re taking charge of your knitting! As EZ said, you’ve gotta be the boss of it!

    I’m so happy you’re blogging again!

    I would expect nothing less than for you to be adventurous enough to modify your sweater patterns — and I get to live vicariously through your experience :-)

    We have a Joann’s here and I can assure you I never see fabric as cute as yours!
