Happiness is Easy: visiting my yarn stash…and Sukhasana (Easy Pose)

Sometimes happiness comes to you in small unexpected ways. Like today.


Somehow, without intending to, I played with my yarn stash today. It made me happy.

I was looking for something (isn’t that always the way?)…and before I knew it, I had pulled everything out. I found some beautiful yarn I had forgotten all about!



Like this wonderful skein of Noro silk-wool blend:







And this…which has lost it’s label. I have no idea what it is, but I’m sure it’s another silk-wool blend. It’s a wonderful colour…kind of a purple/denim. It’s very soft. I bet I had a scarf pattern in mind when I purchased it…




Am I the only person who keeps all the little bits and pieces of yarn left over from this project or that? Because, you know…I might need them someday. Meanwhile, they’re all wound and sorted into bags according to type.








See that basket with the green yarn at the bottom left? That’s my next project…a brioche-stitch sweater in grass green that I’ll be able to wear this fall. I’ll get a swatch made up and the gauge figured out, maybe this evening. Stay tuned!

It feels really good to have it all tidy and organized. 🙂

Isn’t it nice that happiness can be found so easily?




It made me very happy to sort and organize my yarn stash today, so it feels appropriate to introduce you to a yoga pose that promotes happiness!

EEasy Pose

It is said that The Easy Pose (Sukhasana) can reveal the joy that resides in your heart.

Think back to a time when you felt blissfully happy from head to toe. How would you describe the sensations that rippled through you? My bet is that during this period, you had a sense of being utterly grounded and at ease in the present moment. You probably also felt buoyant, uplifted, and awake to the vast possibilities of life around you

I invite you to sit in Sukhasana and let happiness rise through you.

Here is a really quick visual tutorial to help you out:



  1. Your yarn stash is amazingly organized. It was even before you did more. I love going through things and finding stuff I forgot I had. Your yarns are gorgeous. Things like that make me happy, just color and texture and touching it.

  2. What a fantastic yarn stash! but that pose – if I sat like that for more than 30 sec (if I could get down there at all), I don’t think I could get up again. As it is, sometimes it’s hard to get out of my chair LOL! But my chair is my happy place, especially at the end of a busy day.

  3. I like your goel to write letters from a to z. Its nice to read it every day. Sometimes I hat to look at the translater, when its going to be spezial. But its nice
