yarn along


I really have far too many projects on the needles right now, and have no business casting on anything new.  I have quite a bit of gift/birthday/christmas knitting to get done.  However, this last weekend I was able to get away for a couple of days for some retreat/solo (with wren) time and its really the best time to begin a bigger project that requires learning a new skill.  I’ve had the yarn for the Tecumseh sweater since my birthday in June but wanted to finish a few items before casting on and I knew it would take some extra brain energy to get this project off the ground, being it is my first attempt at color work.  So I decided to take it along and at least get it started even though I will probably have to set it down for a bit until I finish some more gift knitting.  Still it felt really good and exciting to get it on my needles!  So far it has been really fun and easier to knit than I anticipated.

I’m still reading (affiliate link) Liturgy of the Ordinary, enjoying every bit of it though I’m making slow progress.  Lots of sickness in our house the last couple of weeks and I’ve been making more of an effort to get to bed earlier because I am up so much in the night with multiple children but especially Wren lately.  So my reading time has been less, but hopefully we’ll all be feeling 100% soon.

  1. I’m a huge sucker for yellow and gray! I bet the sweater will be gorgeous. Good luck on the colorwork, it looks great already! It’s one of my favorite techniques.

    1. I’m a sucker for gray and yellow too! 🙂 I loved this design immediately because of her color choice I think. Thank you for your encouragement, it has been really fun! All I want to knit on. 🙂

  2. I love the color scheme and I followed the link to see what the completed sweater will look like and—swoon! Amazing. That will be so amazing when it is done! Your knitting is immaculate!

    How nice that you were able to get away and hopefully, refill your fuel tank. Mama’s need that.

    I ordered Courage, Dear Heart. Mostly because of you. So thanks! I’ll be picking that up soon. 🙂

    1. Oh good, Rebecca! I so hope you enjoy it as much as I did. I love the color scheme on this one and just copied the designers color scheme because I love yellow and gray so much. It was really good to get away and refuel. I’ve been feeling so worn thin lately and as an introvert and a creative, I’ve realized a yearly solo is so needed (though not always possible). I hope you’re doing well. ❤
