I’m coming up for air as I prepare for school starting next week! Ahhhhh! I’ve got feelings of nervousness and excitement running through me at all times but I also know this was the BEST decision I made in a long time. My Department Chair, Dean and other teaching colleagues are so supportive and excited that I’ve come on full time. How could I not be excited? So I wanted to start looking forward to a new project to start after the first few weeks of school finally settle down and I’m in my rhythm. So now it’s time to start planning for another Tecumseh!
When I knit my Tecumseh sweater I knit it in cotton so I could enjoy it right now (I wear it a lot, it’s nice and light). But I knew when I was knitting it that I would also want a heavier version to wear in the fall/winter. When I said I’d knit this again later in the year several of you said you would be interested in knitting it along with me. So the time has come to start picking your yarn!
I want to start my wool version of this sweater after Labor Day, so that gives you about 3 weeks to pick your yarn and start swatching! I plan on knitting the main body of my sweater with some lovely navy blue Miss Babs Yowza I’ve got in my stash and I have a rainbow palette of colors in Berroco Vintage DK to do the colorwork down the body. I promise, I will start a Ravelry Group for Yards of Happiness so you can share you projects as we knit this one together. Sound good? I’m excited to start this one and to see what you guys create too!

Yes! Sounds like perfect timing to me. I’m finishing up a family gift of two little boy sweaters and hat and mitts for mom and dad, but expect to be done and free by Labor Day. I’m doing a navy ground in my Tecumseh too… With gold and gray motifs. I know, not very adventurous, but you’re having a serious effect on my choices these days, as I’m leaving the all-gray sweater behind!😁 Wishing you strength and happiness as you start the new school year.
Thank you and look at you stepping out of your color comfort zone ☺️
Awesome!!! Sooo good to see you! I miss you not being here, but I am truly happy that your doing what you’re destined to do! 🙂
☺️ thank you
I am determined to finish my current WIPs before I cast this sweater on! I’ve got a little bandana/kerchief to finish up, a sock, and a wrap. Tecumseh here I come!
You can do it!!
I’m in! I’ll be using some Baa Ram Ewe Dovestone in lavender, purple and orange.
Looove that color palette!
Yay a Ravelry group! 😍
Would you mind sharing which cotton yarn you used to make your Tecumseh sweater?
I used Berroco Weekend DK, now discontinued but I’m also using Berroco Modern Cotton for a Guthrie sweater and it’s working up beautifully!
