A Room Without A Roof

I am feeling optimistic today, for a few reasons.

1. It's getting darker earlier, and the CNE is starting on Friday. That's when you know Autumn is almost here.  Locals call it "The Ex".

2. Just went to my wonderful doctor, had some moles checked and they're nothing to worry about.

3. I started my light therapy, as I seem to be having Seasonal Affective Disorder, and after 3 days I can notice a difference.

4. I've been making things, and that's always a good sign.

To that end, here is a Sock Monkey bag I made for a gift.

I added a Gummi Bear stitch marker. I love Gummi Bears. Haribos.
Another gift- this is the Rilo hat. I probably should block it, eh?  I ended up making the child's size, as this is a large hat- to make it snug. A wonderful pattern, and free. Let's make that 5 things to be happy about.
I began my Halyard sweater, and this yarn is epic. Soft and beautiful to knit with.  You begin with the sleeves, and they have a nice roll back cuff. This is a new colour called "Smoke" which is now on the website.

And certainly not least, but last, my darling Clawed. He makes me so happy I want to sing. He is always nearby, if not sitting in my lap- and he's just soft and cute and smells nice and does the cutest things. I made him his own mousie out of handspun, and he carries it around in his mouth, and meows.

Happily Fleecin' out.


  1. Wow, this is a really happy post, and you have been busy! And of course, *any* post with a kitty picture is a good post, in my opinion. :-)

  2. That is an excellent list of reasons to be happy! I'm glad that the light therapy is helping - isn't it unusual to have SAD when it's still light longer than it is dark??

    Scritches for Clawed!

  3. This *is* a happy post! Very glad to hear all is going well for you over there. And Clawed is adorable.

    Have a great weekend full of fiber and kitty lovin'!
