A few months ago, I drove to Kensington, Maryland, to visit GALA (Guild of Artists Local to the Area), which is now carrying Yellow House Knits sweaters.  For those who haven't been, GALA is a brick-and-morter, local version of Etsy, filled to the brim with gorgeous handmade items, including jewelry, housewares, clothing, and a great selection of items for kids.  And, of course, some super-cute handknit baby sweaters. 

While I was there, I had a lovely chat with Linda Blackbourne, the proprietor; bought a necklace for myself from Seven Sons Jewelry; and took a bunch of pictures.  And then the pictures sat on my camera.  And sat and sat.  So without further ado, here are some shots of this fabulous little shop.  Be sure to notice the Spring Road sweater right there in the window in the last picture!  If you happen to be in the area, do stop by and pick up a handmade gift (or even a handmade gift for yourself).

Hello Porter Street!

 FINALLY getting up pictures of the newest member of the YHK family . . . the Porter Street sweater. This demure little cardigan is striped in three shades of blue, ranging from pale blue to dark denim.  There's a ruffle all the way around and a single button at the top.  As you can see, it looks darling with a sweet little dress.  I love how perfect it is for a little girl even though it doesn't have a single drop of pink!  You can find the Porter Street sweater in the Etsy shop here

A million thanks to Kim at Harrill Photography, for the *amazing* pictures.  This was our first time working together, and I hope it won't be the last!

Street Level: Garfield Street

I finally got out and took some new pictures for Street Level!  Today we're headed to Garfield Street in Northwest D.C.  On the map, Garfield Street is a series of short stretches that start and stop abruptly, so driving it is something of a challenge.  But the houses are so lovely all along the street that it's worth it.  Garfield Street starts in a neighborhood known as The Palisades on the far western edge of the city and runs east to Woodley Park.  It's almost exclusively residental, but you do pass St. Albans School and the Embassy of Belgium along the way.  Have a look-see!
