So Black, So Proud, So American #yardsofhappiness #blacklivesmatter

I was fortunate to get a chance to go to the National Museum of African American History and Culture on Sunday. It was beautiful and moving and sad all at once. I say sad because it reminds me how far we’ve come and how far we still have to go. I am an…

I have been busy making knits for all the little people in my life. Maddie who is 1 1/2 is growing and I decided she needed a good dress for fall into winter.  This is the Autumn Frock that I’ve made for Maddie before in a smaller size. It’s a quick…

It’s Friday so I thought I’d share one of my latest finished objects. This is the Tiered Toddler Jacket I whipped up for Maddie last week. I actually made her the same jacket when she was first born but my gauge was off so it fit her once she was one. Her…

August's FO's Roundup #yardsofhappiness #knitting #FOs

Bye, bye, August. Despite August being my favorite month of the year I look forward to the end as we usher in fall. Cooler weather means sweater weather is coming! The only reason I like the cold is because I knit to keep myself warm. So let’s take a look…

The Quarter Stitch & Other Fun #NewOrleans #knitting #yardsofhappiness

Two things I wanted to share from my vacation. First, the awesome project bag my girlfriend sewed for me and second is the yarn shop I visited in New Orleans. When Salina saw my Field Bag in the spring she told me that she could sew up the same thing for…

Stitching Status: Looking Forward to Fall #yardsofhappiness #knitting #FallKnitting

Despite it being 93 degrees on Wednesday, it’s getting cooler in the evenings when I take the dogs out for their last walk of the day. I know fall is just around the corner and because I knit sweaters I look forward to it more now. I’m currently working…

FO: Striped Bermondsey Cardigan #yardsofhappiness @sskal16 #stripes

I was going to wait and share this later, I’ve got some other baby knits that are finished, but I felt like sharing a finished object I’m excited about today. This is my black and white striped Bermondsey cardigan that I knit for myself as a nice…

My husband went out of town for the majority of the Labor Day weekend so I had the house and dogs all to myself. I did some GRE studying and rewarded myself with lots of knitting for being so focused. I like knitting when I’m home alone, I get so much…

Thankful #yardsofhappiness #thankful #birthdays

Yesterday I turned 38. I still struggle at times with the fact that I’m a real adult but clearly I’ve been adulting for a while now. My day started with the gift that kept on giving – poop from Jelly (I swear she’s testing us to see if we really are…

FO: Babies & Fur Babies #yardsofhappiness #knitting #dogsweater #babysweater

You know that I’m a dog lover. I’ve made that very clear here on my blog. But I have a girlfriend who also loves her dog Edie (a fluffy little white ball of cuteness) as much as I love mine and we send each other pictures of our fur babies all the time.…
