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!

One last post…

…before I really, truly go finish packing. =)

I got another of my swap packages today. I sent furrworld a whole bunch of acrylic that is left over from my crocheting days, as she is involved in Project Linus.

She sent me these: I think I won in that trade. =) They are beautiful!


I’ve been hit!

OK, tagged, technically. =) Zknitter got me with this one.

Knitting Olympics update

Almost forgot – I think I’ve made a decision. I’m going with “Hush Hush” from Knitty. I’ve wanted to do it for ages, and just haven’t because I’m scared of the teeny needles and miles of stockinette. So – I think it is a fitting challenge. And hubby has decided that I should make it […]

Leaving on a Jet Plane…

…well, not until tomorrow, but yeah, I am. I got an email about two weeks ago from my best friend Kirsten’s husband Lionel. (She’s the one I sent the Cozy) They have had a really rough couple of months dealing with the loss of their 6-month old baby in December. Kirsten is graduating from college […]

Swapping ROCKS!

My kindhearted postman (who is probably ready to kill me for all the packages I’ve been sending out lately) brought me tow gifties today – my swaps from DonnaSC and tangledblue.

This is the yarn that DonnaSC sent me in exchange for some Manos wool. It is a fingering-weight wool, handpainted by her husband. The […]

2006 Knitting Olympics

So, the Yarn Harlot has come up with this brilliant concept: The 2006 Knitting Olympics. She explains it in detail on her blog, but I’ll give a brief version here – pick a project. Something to challenge yourself. Cast on when the Olympic Torch is lit on February 10, and complete it by when it […]

Nothing knitting related…

…but I just wanted to post these two pictures. On the left is me, in my Tivoli T shortly after I completed it in early August. On the right is me in the very same Tivoli just the other day.

Isn’t it crazy – eating less and moving more actually works!

I do think […]

Half-Price Haul

So, I decided to make a run by Total Crafts in Bowie last night, just to see if they still had anything left in their store closing sale. They had one dump bin of yarn left, which was surprisingly free of the typical cheapie squeaky acrylic, and I made a pretty good haul, all of […]

Up for Grabs!

I edited the post to remove the stuff that has been spoken for. =)

So, I spent some time with the digital camera and the yarn that I have decided to offer for swap. Here it is:

Bernat Satin in Sunset, 2 full skeins and 125 g left over of partial skeins – about 540 […]


I have apparently contracted a bad case of knitting ennui. I finished the Cozy last Thursday, and I haven’t knit a thing since. I just can’t seem to get excited about any of my current WIPs, but I don’t want to start yet ANOTHER project, mostly because I have those WIPs to finish.

I’ve been […]
