A Weekend Well Spent

My husband was out of town for a few days visiting family in Florida, so that gave me ample knitting time while he was away. He came home late Saturday but we knew Sunday would be a rainy day spent inside together and I was able to finish my Tecumseh sweater.

Since I made this with a cotton and acrylic blend yarn at the last moment I decided I’d make this a short sleeved sweater instead of long sleeve. I figured when it’s chilly I can always layer it over a long sleeve tee and now I can wear it whenever I want. The fit is slightly oversized but I think I’m going to have fun styling it and throwing it on casually and with work clothes. It’s blocking and I’ve got a billion ends to weave in but hopefully I’ll get pictures wearing it this week.

I do a lot in any given week. I work a full time job and I’m an adjunct professor so when I get some down time I thoroughly enjoy indulging myself in watching TV and knitting. I did take advantage of Saturday’s gorgeous weather and took the dogs on multiple long walks so we could all get some fresh air. It also serves a dual purpose. I wore them out so they’d give me a little time to knit and not demand all the belly rubs.

I think my weekend was a success.

  1. I got some grading done, which in conjunction with the fact that the skein of yarn I needed for a project was at the studio permitted me to cast on for a new project! Hah! Your colourwork looks great.
