April's FO's Roundup #FO #yardsofhappiness #knitting

Ahhhh April has come and gone. I cannot believe that it’s May! School is out (and I’m taking a break from the fall semester), my wedding anniversary is close and so is summer! WOOHOO! That also means I’m switching over to summer knitting, so more cotton…

FO: Custom Design Caldwell Cape #yardsofhappiness #knitting #customdesignknits

One of my knitting goals this year was to have more confidence in my abilities as a knitter. I know I am always learning and growing in my skills but I have to trust in what I do know and I need to push myself more. A couple of years ago I was at a dog […]

Latest Obsession: Knit Dolls #yardsofhappiness #knitdolls #knitting

Since I have so many little kids in my life and I’m getting a ton of little girls lately, I’ve been lovingly looking for dolls to knit. I know, most dolls are crocheted but I knew if I really searched I could find a doll pattern. My LYS is having a class…

FO: Fluffy Brioche Baby Blanket #yardsofhappiness #babyblanket #babyknits #knitting

It’s Monday, the hardest day of the week for me and I wish I could just be wrapped up in this deliciously squishy and soft blanket. Last week I finished the Purl Soho Fluffy Brioche Blanket for my soon to be goddaughter (they asked us over the weekend),…

{New Series} Sweater Knitting: The First Sweater #yardsofhappiness #knitting

I’m finally introducing a new series of posts about sweater knitting and the lessons I learn along the way. This isn’t a tutorial series (at least not now) because I’m not an expert. I am always learning. What I want this to be is a space to share what…

Stitching Status: TGIF {and extra cutness} #yardsofhappiness #babyknits

I figured out how to get my knitting mojo back – try a new stitch. To make baby blankets go infinitely faster I’ve been using super bulky yarn. So I pulled out my size 15 needles and decided to try the Fluffy Brioche baby blanket from Purl Bee. I’ve seen…

Getting Summer Ready #yardsofhappiness #Cherstagrams #dogswearinghats

I cannot believe that it’s April and it is a chilly 57 degrees in DC. But I get to wear my cape, so I’m okay with it. And thanks to all the nice comments and likes on that post and on my Instagram. I really do appreciate the love and am super proud of…

Senior Dogs Rock #yardsofhappiness #adoptasenior #susiewenttoheaven

I told you when I started this blog on occasion I’d talk about my dog because it’s my blog and I love her (hey, those are the rules). But I wanted to talk a little bit today about senior dog adoption. On Friday night, one of my favorite accounts posted…

Weekend Expectations #yardsofhappiness #Cherstagrams #knitting

No new pictures of progress so here’s one of Cher napping on the couch. I finished the bulky brioche baby blanket last night, I just need to wash it and dry it and I will be delivering it on Saturday. It’s also my oldest sister’s birthday on Tuesday so…

Stitching Status: Distractions & My Design #yardsofhappiness #knitting #customknits

As quickly as I got my mojo back…I lost it. Honestly, I was just getting a little bored so I put that baby blanket down for a minute and just started searching on Ravelry. The weather lately has been insane (It snowed on Saturday in Maryland. It snowed.)…

Stitching Status: Slowing Down #yardsofhappiness #knitting

I typically have 2-3 things I’m knitting at the same time. Sometimes a ton of stockinette stitch will bore me to death so I work on a smaller project that I have to pay attention to a bit more to revive my knitting mojo. Usually I’m swatching for the next…
