Coming Out of Hibernation

I thought I would have come back to writing by now but I have just wanted to stay in my bubble. The world seems to have spun out into more chaos and the pandemic rages on. Nevertheless, I’ve been knitting.

Safia’s sweater

My last finished object of 2020 was the Langley sweater. We brought my cousin into our shelter-in-place bubble before the holidays and I knit this sweater up in 6 days with her watching it all unfold. I’ve yet to get a photo of her in it, but I’ll share more details once I do.

Eli’s rainbow prism hat

I started my new year knitting away at bright and colorful knits for some of the children in my life. There are lots of tiny sweaters, little hats and colorful toys flying off my needles. I’m also prepping for the new semester that begins. More Zoom calls and days of me reading a lot but I’m happy to get back into my routine.

So I’m just popping in to say hello, I’m here and will come back soon. In the meantime, stay safe out there and wear a mask!

  1. Short and sweet and oh so welcome. Thanks for posting. You are always a treat. 👏😍

  2. These are scary times, especially in DC. Keep knitting. Keep sheltering. Keep hoping. Keep teaching

  3. I lived in DC during my college years in the mid 80s right near the White House in Foggy Bottom and consider DC a second home. My heart goes to the residents, I can’t even imagine how scary times must there right now for you and everyone who calls DC home. I have stayed away during this administration, but I’m looking forward to returning after a vaccine and the arrival of a new administration. Stay safe, stay strong, keep knitting!

  4. Lovely to hear from you. Your cousin is lucky woman! Do stay safe. Here’s hoping the new administration brings peace and safety back in our lives.

  5. Thanks for the update Dana. Stay safe and sane 🙂
    As always, you inspire me to try something new and go beyond my perceived fears.
    Love this sweater and when I saw it was Aran weight, thought “maybe even I could do that!”
    Your ravelry page doesn’t list the yarn used in the yoke. I LOVE your color combos on this sweater. Lucky cousin.

  6. Beautiful sweater and I love the pillows! I also loved your slippers from awhile back but couldn’t figure out how to comment.
    I haven’t been knitting for months because of surgery on a finger tip. The good news is my carpal tunnel has gone away!
    Take care and hang in there!

  7. Love the sweater. Great color combination. And thanks for the bright pop of color…indeed we all need that right now.

  8. Hi, so glad youbare all doing well. I’m staying in my bubble too. I am enjoying your posts. Good luck this semester as a student and as instructor.
