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!

Objets d’Art

OK, since this is “objets d’art” week in Blogstalking, I guess I should find some, eh?

This is my favorite piece of art in the house.(Not the shawl, the chair) That is what is referred to in my family as the “Ugly Face Chair”. It belonged to my maternal grandparents and used to sit in […]

I’m Here!

I’ve been really bad lately about blogging, for a variety of reasons. First of all, this past weekend was that grand tradition of debauchery – EdFest! Basically, this is a group of people who have gotten together for a weekend every July since right after their freshman year in college, which makes this the 15th […]

Three Quick Things

First, I finished Bombshell! Yay! It really came out well – I’m very happy with it. I’ll post pics and more details on the pattern tomorrow.

Also, I did start playing with my KnitPicks needles on the edging for the sweater, and I am in love. I am really happy with them. Again, more detail […]

They’re Here!

Yay! My needles arrived!!!That’s the Options set, the 40″, 47″ and 60″ cables, the size tags, the needle sizer, some extra pockets, and a bunch of the circulars.

I swear, I’ve been bugging him to get me this picture – he finally did.Turtlegirl76, me, and Bryghtrose in Stitch DC Georgetown. And yes, I’m sticking my tongue out. I think I was laughing at something.

Also, the pic he took of Turtle’s brand-new Lantern Moon basket.And, just because we haven’t had any pictures in […]

Yorkie Day!

Yes, that’s right – you need to be jealous – I got to spend yesterday with the Siress herself, knittyboard’s own Yorkshire Gal. Which makes this the third week in a row I’ve spent hanging with a non-local Knittyhead, now that I think about it. Hee!

I picked her up yesterday and we headed over […]

Blasted Bombshell Sweater

So, you may notice (if you are in the habit of memorizing the status bars over there) that the progress on the Bombshell Tee has once again moved backward. Grr.

I was almost done with the ribbing, when I tried it on, and I realized that there was just no way it was working. The […]

I’m Growing Gills

I swear it – if it doesn’t stop raining around here soon, I’m going to sprout freaking gills. So far, we’ve been lucky and not had any actual damage (an advantage of not having a basement), but I’m just so very, very sick of rain and gray skies, and getting soaked every time I run […]
