Stitching Status: Progress & Pups #yardsofhappiness #dogwearingabackpack

I’m making progress on my latest striped summer tee but for the last two nights this is how I’ve had to knit. With Jellybean in my lap staring back at me with puppy dogs eyes. I blame her shots from over the weekend for her wanting more love than what she…

Lessons Learned: Short Row Shaping a Shoulder #yardsofhappiness #knitting #yarn

I love to learn. I’m constantly looking for new skills, new things to excite me and it’s probably one of the reasons I love to teach and love social media. There’s always something new and fresh to learn about that subject. So a few years ago I took a…

FO: Something for Spring #yardsofhappiness #knitting #yarn

It’s Friday! I have no real plans for the weekend and that makes me super happy. Today I thought I’d share a finished object to usher in the weekend. When I finished my Little Women cardigan I had 3 and a half skeins leftover and I didn’t know what to…

In My Queue: So Faded #yardsofhappiness #findyourfade #sofaded #sweaterknitting

Over the years I’ve learned to never say never because whenever I do, inevitably I end up doing the thing I never said I’d do. Example: when I was in the 5th grade I had to give a presentation about the state of Massachusetts (we lived in North Carolina…

My Favorite Summer Knits #yardsofhappiness #knitting #summerknits #yarn

The other weekend I washed and packed away most of my hand knit sweaters. I like to keep out a few of my favorite cardigans for when the temps dip and since I like a few layers. But it felt almost like Christmas morning opening up the bin and remembering…

April always seems to be such a chaotic month. My semester will be over soon and as much as I love teaching I’m always exhausted by the end of a semester. Balancing my full time job and teaching a college course is time consuming to say the least but I…

FO: Little Women Cardigan featuring @CPYarns #yardsofhappiness #knitting #yarn

One of my  favorite books of all time is Little Women. I have sisters and I’m the youngest and it just always stuck with me when I was kid. Plus I love all the movie versions. I haven’t read it in years but for Christmas my BFF Jess gave me this lovely…

The Little Things #yardsofhappiness #knitting #yarn

Remember that fluffy chevron baby blanket I knit in February? This weekend I got a chance to snuggle the recipient. Is there anything in the world better than snuggling a newborn baby? She smelled so good and gave these deep little sighs like she was just…

When a Hat Isn't Just a Hat #yardsofhappiness #knitting #yarn #family

I never blogged about this hat last year. I counted it in my 2016 round-up and mentioned it in my March 2016 FO Monthly Round-up. I didn’t think of it as a major FO but it was made for my ‘little brother’ Travis because he has repeatedly been a guest…

Since I’ve been sick for the last 2 weeks this has pretty much been my view. Jellybean didn’t leave an inch between us every single day. If I coughed she’d put her paw on me like ‘it’s okay, it’ll stop soon.’ And Cher on the other hand was like ‘you’re…
