FO: The Big Cozy #yardsofhappiness #knitting #yarn

I’m always hesitant to knit with super bulky and chunky weight yarns because I’ve always felt like they can add bulk to your frame. And since I’ve got curves and am not the tiniest or the tallest I prefer my knits to show off my shape and not add to it.…

Hand Knit Holiday 2017 #yardsofhappiness #knitting #yarn #dogsinsweaters

I’m often told I’m over the top or too much in the things I do. Often I respond, ‘ok…and?’ or I just keep on doing whatever it is I was doing. Sometimes I wonder, what is the level that I’m being measured on? But in all honesty, I don’t care. I’m doing…

FO: Shades of Blue Sweater (2x) #yardsofhappiness #knitting #yarn

It was a glorious snowy weekend in Maryland. I was able to cook earlier in the week so I had lots of good food and didn’t have to worry about cooking all weekend. So that meant I was able to spend all day on the couch bundled up with the dogs finishing my…

A Cozy Idea #yardsofhappiness #knitting #yarn

The other day my husband jokingly said he wanted me to knit him a robe. In my family, you know you’re in the inner circle when you get a robe. After my husband and I got married my Dad bought him a plush robe for Christmas – we are robe people. But I’ve…

Stitching Status: Fatigue #yardsofhappiness #knitting #yarn

December is always an exhausting month for me. The semester is coming to a close so there are papers to grade and final projects to review. My full time job is ramping up for our big trade show right after the new year, so just when you hope things will…

How is it already December? HOW?! Since it is the first of the month I always like to look back at what I was able to accomplish in the last month. Let’s take a look: Coordinating sweaters for Cher and Jellybean. I love my dogs. I love silly and over the…

FO: The Road Trip Hat #yardsofhappiness #knitting #yarn #CherandJelly

If you follow me on Instagram you may have seen in my Instagram stories that I shared our road trip for Thanksgiving. My husband and I packed up Cher and Jellybean and drove from Maryland to Memphis, Tennessee. Are we crazy? Perhaps. On the way there we…

FO: Thankful for Dogs #yardsofhappiness #knitting #dogsinsweaters #CherandJelly

In 2013, the day before Thanksgiving I drove out to Virginia and picked up my very first dog, Cher. A timid and shy chihuahua pug mix who didn’t realize I was probably just as terrified of her and what to expect as she was of me. This was the first…
