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!

Knitting Blogs & Sites


Saw this on Turtlegirl’s blog – I had to take it! I mean, we used “Storybook Love” at our wedding, for heaven’s sake!

Which Princess Bride Character are You?this quiz was made by mystiI didn’t actually expect that one! Not sure what I did expect, but it wasn’t Buttercup.

If I have a chance this […]


So, I was cruising along on the awesome “Bombshell” pattern from Big Girl Knits, with only some minor… um… modifications. (Roughly translated, I was working at a very slightly different gauge, and I miscounted where I was on the increases and did fewer than called for) In spite of these modifications, it was going to […]

Weekend Recap

Had a good weekend. We went up to PA to see Kris’s Mom and my folks.

One of the reasons we went up to see Kris’s Mom was so that he could deliver something to her. When his Dad passed away in April, Kris and I talked about buying the urn for his ashes, but […]

Kind of cool

I’ve seen this quiz on a couple of blogs and decided to take it, just for fun.

You scored as Cultural Creative. Cultural Creatives are probably the newest group to enter this realm. You are a modern thinker who tends to shy away from organized religion but still feels as if there is something greater […]

Hello, bandwagon? I’m on!

So, How Well Do You Know Trillian42?

I have a hunch most of these are pretty easy, but what the heck.

I <3 Carbon Leaf

Had the BEST time last night at the Ram’s Head Inn in Annapolis. We went to see Carbon Leaf with Jen and Hillary, and it was an AWESOME show. The Ram’s Head is a nice small venue, so even the furthest tables were near the stage and you could see the guys clearly. Plus, they […]

Too Cute!

Okay, tell me this is not the cutest thing ever:That’s right – my hubby is learning to spin!! And he’s pretty proud of himself, too. Of course, I’d say he has pretty good reason. Not bad for his very first attempt, eh? He’s champing at the bit to get his hands on my spinning wheel, […]

Monday Morning

First of all, how much do I love the Tony Awards? I was sad that my boyfriend (Hugh Jackman, and yes, he is MINE!) wasn’t there this year, having done such a great job hosting the last couple, but it was a great night, with some wonderful performances. Kris is totally enamored of the new […]

Woo Hoo!

So, after an evening of playing World of Warcraft, Kris remembered that he was supposed to be helping me figure out why my freaking blog was misbehaving. He finally (after a couple of hours of fighting with it) figured out that Blogger is putting a tag at the beginning of my posts which causes things […]

Playing Catch-Up

Let’s see… I know I owe Kennywood pictures, so for those of you who are interested, Kris has a flickr set here. It’s not all of them just yet, but he’s going to put the rest of them up soon.

Also – current knitting progress. I have put my One Skein Tank in time out […]
