Ha...I was just thinking, "this girl is a freaking machine!!!" then I read your convo, too funny. I adore all the beautiful pieces you've been whipping up...perfection. Lucky little lady coming your way.

Alicia, you do too have a life! It is just a life filled with creating. Would you rather be one of those people that watches endless tv? Ugh, me neither. Love the sweaters.


Haha funny conversation! I envy your and your life. :-)


can you just adopt me so i can have that wardrobe? haha everything is just perfect...seriously. i wish i had the time to do all that, and you are smart to do it now before your little girl finds you and you have no time left for anything other than loving her..:) it really is all so gorgeous...:)

Hey..never let it be said that you don't know how to have a good time, Alicia! Love that little cardie. Lots of love, Amanda xxx


AGAIN, smashing. I love the collar . . . and oh, the buttons...



Take it from someone who used to have a "life" - being home sewing and knitting is sooo much more fun and fulfulling whatever else it is we think we should be doing! And that little sweater makes me want to skip our dinner party tonight and cast on!

Gingham buttons!! Too good!!
Vanilla, also so good.
Your "life" seems just right. Do you have something more important to do than create and appreciate the beauty all around you?


I love all the little details, from the darling buttons to the perfect stitches to the lovely, sheepish conversation between you and your husband.


Yet another beautiful little creation! Living a creative life is the best life!!

Simple and sweet. Very pretty!


it's not that we think you have no life...we think you have a beautiful life!


Those pockets are so adorable~~


That's funny. And the sweater is so sweet.


What a lovely cardigan! I was thinking of knitting a little sweater for my sister's baby-to-be, and this looks just right. Although, I will need to make it without sleeves, as I only have 100 g of yarn.


Vanilla ice cream...what a great analogy. I love that dark blue one, as well.

As far as you thinking you have no life...WHAT??!!?? It is finer and lovlier to come here and see what you have designed, changed, stitched up or made than most anything else I could be reading.

I'm telling you -- I will SKIP over headlines to come here any day. :-)


Here's some I could find on the internet:
Pastel Cuties -

Fabric Covered with Matching Piping:

I hope those help. I love the sweaters! I wish I had that kind of time. :)


Over 25 years ago, I knitted one of my nephews a little cream colored jacket with a hood and trimmed it with light blue buttons and light blue crochet edging. I loved how sweet the cream color looked on him. Somehow, your little sweater reminds me of the one I knit for him.


Very sweet...I can see a sweet child wearing it! Great color!

Perfect again! Baby must be on her way fast as you are really filling her closet with these beauties for fall. Although from what you have said I think it can be cool anytime in Oregon. "Cool" is right to describe her wardrobe, cool and loveable.

Carla (from Alabama)

Your knitting is beautiful. I couldn't believe that you had completed yet another sweater so quickly, and perfectly.

But, as for not having a life...I think you may have one of the best life's of all...creating/sharing/designing/learning/writing/sharing...I would love to be able to do that. I barely have time to post anything on my blog after working all day and as for projects...well...they kind of get the worst end of it all...I start out full speed and then I am so tired after work that I usually come to a halting stop and there sits an unfinished project.

I love to read your blog and see your work. I appreciate your "life sharing" and look forward to it everyday during my breaks. So, all I can say is, "Don't ever get a life or all the rest of us may suffer seriously."

charlotte lyons

hoping you get a baby in there soon...while there is still a bit of room for her! love these 2 sweaters, Alicia! xoC


uh oh...did somebody above mention endless tv ? guess, from reading this blog, is that a leetle bit of tv may have kept you company (but only Masterpiece Theatre dvds..or Clatterford from netflix,right?)
No, you haven't been rumbled!
Whatever works works. And as you continue to amaze us with beautiful things, I find myself being increasing more productive. And yes Colin and Justin, or Jamie Oliver, do help out from time to time.


It's like Christmas morning watching the computer screen as your blog appears . . . and then BAM - A beautiful surprise!
As this precious sweater came into view I was screaming in my head "are you kidding me? ARE YOU KIDDING ME?!! How does she do this?!"
You have a life, alright - and we are so grateful you share it with us.


I love that sweater and the buttons are just too cute.
