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!

Finished in One Week

Okay, I can’t believe this, but I finished Kris’s pirate socks in one week! Why is this so amazing? Because there is something special at the top of the socks: Check it out – that’s Fair Isle. (Okay, okay – technically it’s stranded colorwork) But the point is – I did it! I made it […]

Under the Wire

First of all, thank you for your kind thoughts and prayers for Kirsten and her family. She’s an amazing woman, and I cannot believe how strong she has been dealing with the loss of Alex. I will actually see her this weekend – she’s the one who planned the Kennywood trip almost 2 years ago. […]

Happy Birthday, Alex

See this beautiful little boy? His name is Alex. Today would have been his first birthday, but he died on December 8 of last year. His mother Kirsten is my dearest friend in the world, and my heart breaks every day at the thought that this wonderful little guy was taken from her.

Alex was […]

Whaddaya know?

There’s a BLOG here! I’ve been a neglectful blogger, I know. In my defense… um… yeah, I got nothing.

I have been working on the 2nd baby quilt and the last Baby Bolero, both of which need to be done before we leave for Pittsburgh this coming Thursday (Yay!! Kennywood!!!). I got the strips for […]

Quilt Accompli!

Finished the binding this morning! Thank you for all your kind words on the color combination, but I can’t take full credit. I actually picked the colors based on the linens Jen and Eric picked out for Renee’s room, as seen at Baby Depot. The fabrics for the other quilt are totally based around the […]

Tag! I’m It!

At least, I am per chacha. =)

So – the “Favorite LYS Meme”:

1)What’s your favorite LYS? : Stitch DC (Capitol Hill) (Interstingly, the same as Jen’s)

2)What about it do you like most?: Easy access via Metro, very friendly staff, nice variety of yarns, and super-close to both Banana Cafe and Marty’s (I have […]

Maryland Sheep and Wool 2006

For my first experience at the famous MDS&W, I think I managed to behave myself pretty well. =) We got there a little bit too late to snag any of the Koigu Mill Ends or the Socks That Rock, which was a bummer, but there was certainly plenty of other great stuff to keep us […]

I’m Cheating On My Yarn Stash

That’s right. I’m cheating on my yarn. With what, you might ask? This:

Yes, I am quilting. I made a couple of baby ones as gifts during a brief foray into quilting about 6 or 7 years ago. (I still have the fabric that was supposed to become a quilt for Kris and I here […]

Stuff and Nonsense

First of all, an apology to Joanna – I promised her pics of the finished (Yay!) Prosperous Plum tank yesterday. Unfortunately, I was taking care of a sick hubby all day and didn’t have a chance to take any.

He’s fine now – Kris and Jen and I went sailing with our friends Mary and […]
