Stitching Status: An Introduction

I wasn’t going to post today since it has been a short and wild week BUT I’ve been featured in a couple of different places and have had a lot of new folks coming over to the blog so I wanted to say, HELLO!
Durumi tees
Yesterday the Durumi tees I knit for myself and Jellybean were shared on the Pom Pom Magazine Instagram AND on Kay Gardiner of Mason Dixon Knitting’s Instagram with a hope to ‘break the internet’ LOL. I was definitely flattered by the love and excitement over those pieces and my adorable Jellybean. But then to top off a crazy day, my Tecumseh top was featured on the Ravelry homepage.
Needless to say I’ve gotten a lot of messages on Ravelry and Instagram and a ton of traffic coming here, so I just wanted to say hello and thank you for stopping by my little corner of the internet. And in the meantime, I will be working on my Askews Me Shawl this weekend!
Askews Me Shawl in progress
Knitting tip, don’t start brioche when you’re sleepy. You won’t read the instructions well. I started this over at lunch yesterday and realized the mistake I was making the night before and now it’s smooth sailing! So cheers to having a happy knitting filled weekend. You guys rock!

    1. HAHAHA my girlfriend said that too and my response is that Jellybean does not listen or follow any instructions. She is cute but would be the worst model. LOL

Not only are you and your “entourage” really photogenic, your pics always communicate good knitter info about how to handle the techniques you’re showcasing. I’ve so appreciated that and also your openness to comments and questions from those of us working toward our own FOs. You’re the best, DWJ!

Happiness is not a constant state thing, but on the woven ribbon of emotions in time it’s clusters and sparks of joy. Thank you ! I’m going to enjoy reading your blog, your pictures make me smile 😊

    1. I often tell people that sometimes you have to choose joy, it isn’t always the easiest option but it is usually the best. It’s easy to unhappy, choosing to find happiness in the darkest moments is a gift. Thank you for reading!
