I'm off to a 2nd round interview today for a sweet part time job at a nonprofit (which is what I'm looking for if you have any leads I'd be eternally grateful) and I'm so excited for sunshine and a nice long weekend. P.S. beautiful piece by @iameelco (Wu Tang Cup Cozy by me) πŸ‘πŸΌ get it in my shop and use coupon code memorial for 20% off all weekend! #tgif #memorialdayweekend #wellingcourt #momlife #momwantstogetpaid #eightyearshomeisenoughright?


In less than a month I'll be celebrating thirteen years of marriage to this guy I met on vacation in 1999.... #tbt #queensmeetsfloridainmexico


This is soooo knot cool. Some projects are less portable than others. #thestruggle #itgotallfuckedupinmybag #passmethesissors #knitterproblems ((shirt by @unifiedqueens))


Our pattern goes like this. I make something. Josephine says "oooh is that for me?" I go "sure." If you'd like a turban ear warmer for yourself or your kiddos, check out my Etsy shop and I'll make it while she's in school πŸ˜‰

Knitting by me. #whereistheknittingemoji


Every Sunday we pass the Clinton Street Baking Company on the way to church and every Sunday there's a huge line. Anyone been? P.S. vegan cream cowl #onmyneedles.


We had an amazing day at @socratespark's Wildfest and then a mini tour of @wellingcourtmuralproject. Black Panther mural by @zehpalito and @w3rc #blacklivesmatter #stoppolicebrutality #blackpanther #wildfest #socratessculpturepark


Texted my husband and asked for an iced coffee on his way home and as soon as he got in, I took that sweet iced goodness to the fire escape for some me time. #motherhoodinnyc coffee cup cozies are available in my shop, link in bio πŸ‘†πŸΌ and use code Instagram for free shipping!


Sweating my ass off on the subway platform currently but thinking about sitting in the air conditioning tonight with my knitting, an alcoholic beverage and @desusandmero on πŸ“Ί #bestshowontv #bodegahive


The age old struggle of wanting to read and knit at the same time. Has anyone figured this out? (I know there are audio books but I kinda love reading books) πŸ“š πŸ–€


A cowl to match the gorgeous sky today. Grateful for this weather because I needed something happy to focus on. Who else was up all night refreshing twitter? #canweimpeachnow? I'm also happy because the amazing @gantrygram gave me a beautiful shout out on her page πŸ’•


I made this Bernie cozy during the primaries but it's still relevant because I'm endlessly inspired by the fact that this man, despite losing, is still fighting for us. @berniesanders #berniesanders #feelthebern


My cards this year: Awesome @widycat_art card from my husband, super religious card from my mom, flowerpot card from Josephine and the following "mother" vertical poem from Henry:
"Miraculously sweet
Outstandingly kind
There for me
Raising us" 😒


Do yourself a a favor and go see Raisin (tix at @apacgram) and then get some drinks with friends no matter how badly you want to go to home and sleep. The show was so great, thank you @apacgram! πŸš•πŸΉπŸ“·: @singlegirlcookies

Always keep a project on you at all times. (My husband who cuts my felt letters wants you to know the camera is making the R backwards..... It's good otherwise πŸ‘Œ) #alternatesideofthestreetparking #queensgetthemoney.

Just finished this set of mustard bow tie and hairclip for a set of boy and girl twin babies!! πŸ’›πŸ’› I love custom orders but more than anything I love babies. I mean who doesn't? I may or may not have just sobbed through Joseline's birth story on #lhhatl while making these. She slayed that natural birth πŸ™†


Coffee, coffee, coffee and repeat. #mondaymotivation
