Unraveled Wednesday: Knit this Sweater, Read this Book

Woohoo for the Tecumseh sweater!! I’m knitting mine with DWJ. Check out Yards of Happiness for details and pics of Dana’s amazing progress, and join Dana’s Ravelry group for lots of great Tecumseh chat. I’m knitting with Baa Ram Ewe Dovestone DK. It’s the first time I’ve knit with this yarn, …

Unraveled Wednesday’s Knitting and Reading

Hello, Friends! I’m still here. Still knitting, reading, teaching, doing each next thing. As usual on Wednesdays, I’m rushing to get everything ready for my marathon teaching day on Thursday, but I did want to pop in for Unraveled Wednesday. The log cabin squares continue to be every bit as …

Who knew the lizard wanted to be a log all along?
