FO: Colorblocked Lesley {pattern by @hannahfettig} #yardsofhappiness #knitting

Sometimes I surprise myself with how much knitting I can get done when I’m focused. So far in 2016 I’ve been really focused. So far I’ve finished 4 adult sweaters, 1 toddler sweater, a hat and a baby blanket (that has yet to be delivered because I swear…

Adventures in Yarn Dyeing {with @karida_nfc} #yardsofhappiness #yarn #yarndyeing

I mentioned last week that I was taking a yarn dyeing workshop at the Neighborhood Fiber Co’s shop in Baltimore over the weekend so I thought I’d share what I made in class. If you’ve never dyed yarn before it’s not that difficult. I did it a couple of…

FO: Cupid Cardigan for a Cutie {featuring @MissBabsYarns} #yardsofhappiness

Do you see them? The little hearts running down the back of this cardigan? This is Cupid a cardigan pattern I bought a long time ago but was afraid to knit because I hadn’t knit a sweater before. But when I saw this pattern I knew I’d eventually make it…

I’m back to my office and my classroom after a good 12 days off because of travel and blizzard. Since getting home Friday morning I’ve finished one toddler cardigan, one adult sized cardigan and a super bulky weight hat. I’ve snapped a few pics of them…

Stitching Status: Las Vegas Edition #yardsofhappiness #knitting

As you’re reading this post I’m on a flight trying to make my way back home before the big snow storm hits DC. I’ve been in Las Vegas for a week for work and all I want is to kiss my husband, snuggle my dog and sleep in my own bed. I won’t be upset […]

Stitching Status: Neutrals & Rainbows #yardsofhappiness #YarnInk #rainbows

It’s Friday, a long weekend and it’s freezing! A perfect excuse to stay inside all weekend long and knit. By tomorrow I should be wearing my latest creation and starting in on the next project. I am on a mission to get some knitting done when I have a…

Transitional Pieces #yardsofhappiness #yarn #knitting

I am constantly adding things to my list of what I want to knit for myself and things I want to knit for others. Currently I’m on a one for someone else, one for me plan. This lovely camel colored yarn is going to become the Louise Top Down from the…

FO: Blizzard Bulky Knits #yardsofhappiness #knitting #Blizzard2016

What do I do when I am home during a blizzard? Knit a jacket. Because my name is Dana and I’m an obsessive sweater knitter. They say all knitters have their “thing” that they love to knit and I thought my knitting thing was hats because I started knitting…

Stitching Status: The Laundry List #yardsofhappiness

So I’ve got a laundry list of things I want to do, things I should do and things I’m just not motivated to do. These are lists in life and in knitting (I’m talking about you, homework I assigned but am too tired to grade). LOL My girlfriend Rachel, who…

Snow Days #yardsofhappiness #yarnbox

My husband and I made our flights home within 30 minutes of each other on Friday, just a few hours before Blizzard Jonas hit our area. I don’t know if I’ve ever hugged him so tightly as I did when I saw him in the airport. All that stress and anxiety I…

FO: A Classic Raglan {pattern by @jane_richmond_} #yardsofhappiness #knitting

Sometimes, you have to go with simple. I know I pick a lot of colors, I like to make bold statements and pick unusual patterns and color combos but sometimes simplicity really is the key. My cousin is absolutely adorable and has a very petite frame. I…
