Mood #yardsofhappiness

I saw a graphic yesterday that said for 72% of September we’ve had grey skies. It has been rainy and gross out the entire month. I’m knitting and plugging along, grading assignments and snuggling dogs. My husband is almost back from a stretch of travel…

Stitching Status: Tiny Tecumseh #TecumsehwithDWJ #yardsofhappiness #knitting #dogsinsweaters

I decided in the middle of knitting my rainbow Tecumseh sweater that the dogs need to have coordinating ones too. Why not? I started on this late Monday night and I could’ve finished it last night but decided to work on a few other things instead. This…

FO: Rainbow Askews Me Shawl #yardsofhappiness #knitting #yarn #WestKnitsBestKnits

I love knitting rainbows. It’s fun to do the color changes and to see how the rainbow will really evolve in the pattern you’ve chosen. They make me smile and I swear I get asked more about what I’m knitting when it’s something super colorful. So after…

This picture is old because I’m actually down to the fourth color of my rainbow Tecumseh sweater but I wanted to share a status update. And it’s moving along! I’m already down to the green section! You know since that’s my favorite color I’m super…

Knitting While Traveling #yardsofhappiness #knitting #yarn

I own three sizes of addi Flexiflip needles, they’re like a hybrid between a circular needle and double pointed needles. I bought them in sizes 6, 7 and 8. The sizes I seem to use the most for hats and sweaters anticipating using them for sleeves. I…

August 2018 Finished Objects #yardsofhappiness #knitting #yarn

With everything going on I forgot to share August’s finished objects. I can see why I forgot because I only finished one thing. The sunny yellow Spindrift cardigan I made for my sister. I’ve been working on other things and just finished a test knit for…

It feels like forever ago since I wrote here but it really hasn’t been. I’ve been slow to respond to comments and I apologize. I’ve been away! I just got back from Las Vegas on Tuesday morning and I’m ready to dive into the Tecumseh Knitalong! If you…
