About Me

I'm a married knitter, crocheter, and newbie spinner living in the Maryland suburbs with my photographer- computer geek hubby, 3 cats, and 3 dogs. And yarn. A LOT of yarn. Just ask my hubby.


Yup, I’m a Twit!

More Christmas progress

So, I swatched the yarn for Nora’s purse on Monday afternoon:

I think it looks pretty cool. I swatched with one of the skeins that took less of the dye, figuring I’d use the more vibrant ones for the actual purse.

I started the actual purse itself Monday evening, and got a lot of it […]

Thanksgiving in Review

It was a busy and productive weekend here at the zoo. Mom and Dad arrived Wednesday evening in Dad’s car, which decided somewhere around Breezewood that heat was a luxury, and they didn’t really need it. Hyon and Drew and Clint came over to see them, since they haven’t seen him since he was about […]

Knitting ADD be damned!

Yes, I have knitting ADD – I freely admit it. I mean, honestly, have you SEEN the list of projects on my needles? Is it EVER less than 4?

Secret Pal Scarf

So, I got this gorgeous yarn from my SP on Thursday, and I started playing with it that night. I decided to make the Misty Garden Scarf from Scarf Style, striped with the four different colors. After a Friday morning at the vet’s office for Ginger’s shots and checkup, and a Saturday afternoon sitting in […]

A Finished Object and SP Goodies!

So, yesterday, I finshed casting off my Kiri shawl and blocked it. This does it, folks – I adore lace. While I had been working on it, I would stretch it from time to time to get an idea of how it would look when it was done, but I had NO IDEA what the […]

This Was the Halloween That Was

So, we hosted our annual Halloween party this weekend. We actually had more in costume than not this year! As always, there was way too much food (my bad – we’ll be eating chili for months), and plenty of beer to go around. Here are some of the highlights:

The preparation – Kris, Jen and […]
