T Tuesday: quick check in edition

My life in the petri dish of school has continued. Just as I was feeling better, I was hit with the crud again. I missed Thursday of school last week. UGH!! GERMS EVERYWHERE!!Β  I feel good now with the exception of a residual cough congestion cough. So frustrating.

I did start a new project on Friday and finished it up over the weekend. I learned how to use a different kind of knitting loom with a completely different stitch thanks to Pinterest and YouTube. I love all the resources we have at our finger tips these days!loom knit cowl

I followed this blog postΒ to learn the new stitch. The kind of yarn I’m using doesn’t really show any stitches and I think perhaps in part of it I messed up. Thank you forgiving yarn…no one will never notice it.loom knit cowl

It’s so soft. I wore it to school yesterday as a snugly edition to my outfit.

26. thank you for….coffee

27. in the night….Marvin waits for me to top off his bowl before bed each night

I’ll need to pick my new challenge for February. These photo a day challenges really keep me stretching my creativity even when I can’t create hands-on.

Work, errands and archery are on the list today…
What are you doing today?

    Your cowl is lovely and from the photos it looks so cozy and soft. I love the internet too for learning how to do things. I taught myself how to spin with lots of you tube videos.
    so sorry you caught the bug again a good thing for us being retired we can avoid getting out in public this winter.
    Happy T Day enjoyed all of your photos too Kathy

  3. Your cowl turned out great Halle and kudos to you for learning something new.. Keeps our brains young.. i don’t envy you being in school around all those germs… I hope you get and stay well soon.. Think just how strong your immune system must be! Happy T day hugs! deb

  4. Sorry to hear you’ve been unwell again, sending you get well wishes! Wow, I love the cowl you made 😁.The yarn is beautiful and I bet it was so warm and cosy to wear – perfect! Your photo challenge is fabulous and Marvin looks so hopeful while waiting for his treat …lol πŸ˜‰. Take care and wishing you a Happy T Day! J

  5. I’ve never seen a loom like that. Your yarn looks so soft and warm πŸ™‚

    Aren’t online resources wonderful! I’m listening to a series on American Literature now and another on Film History. The videos are short and fun.

    Happy T Tuesday!

  6. that is a great scarf to keep your neck warm. I had that horrible cough over Christmas and crocheted a blue wrap for my neck..hope you get better soon and rub some Vicks vapour rub on your feet, have nice lemon drinks and plenty of rest as its quite a difficult bug to shift

  7. This was more than a quick check-in edition, dear friend. It is a wonderful post. I was SO impressed with that cowl. I can’t see any mistakes, and I bet you got lots of compliments on it, too.

    I LOVE Marvin. He is SO photogenic. What a doll. And you managed to get your mug in for T, too. Thanks for sharing your “quick” edition with us for T this Tuesday, dear Halle.

    I loved the photos and Marvin seems to like getting his photo taken.
    I hope your cough will be getting better soon.
    Happy T day wishes.

  9. Cool. I’ve seen these looms (of various sorts) but have never tried one. Looks like it is speedy and probably fun too. happy T day Halle. Hope you are all better and stay healthy. Hugs-Erika

  10. I know what you mean about certain yarns never showing stitches. It is most frustrating when making a pattern that requires detail such as lace. But your cowl turned out beautifully.
    Happy Tea Day,

  11. Your cowl is lovely. And it looks very warm and cuddly. So does Marvin – lol. I think I have one of those looms that a friend gave me but I’ve never used. I need to dig that out πŸ˜‰

    Glad you’re feeling somewhat better and hope you can remain so this time, Halle!

    Hugs, Eileen
