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!

I Blame the Knittyboards

For what, you ask? This: Seriously – if it weren’t for the Knittyboard, I would not have known that Smiley’s had discontinued Cotton-Ease for $1.99 a skein. OK, I guess I also have to blame Kris, because when I said something to him about a discontinued yarn that I like being available for about 60% […]

Since my public beckons…

Hee… yeah, because I have a public. =) Seriously, you guys crack me up.

Anyway, nothing much going on here (No, Cristi, seriously), but I do have a couple of pictures to show.

First – I joined the Monthly Dishcloth KAL, and the mid-month one for August was the first pattern I did. (I skipped […]

Apparently I am a Bad Blogger

…or else I just have friends with too much time on their hands. (You know I love you both, CBear and Yorkie).

I’m making some progress on the Christmas knitting, but I can’t really post about it, what with the recipients reading my blog, so you’ll have to wait on that.

I am also behind […]


Check it out! I finished the “We Call Them Pirates” hat for Kris! I actually finished it a couple of days ago, but had to block it and then wait for it to dry. Stupid cotton hem. =) It is KnitPicks Wool of the Andes in “Coal” and “Cloud”, and KnitPicks Shine Worsted (for the […]

Contest Results!

But first, a small announcement. Since my “Jack Sparrow’s Favorite Socks” pattern got found (and apparently is kinda popular. Who knew?) I’ve gone way over my GeoCities bandwidth limit. Luckily, I am married to a wonderful man who already had some webspace set up, and now my patterns are there, just waiting to be discovered. […]

Personal Growth

You know how when you are a kid and someone does something to hurt you or make you angry, your first reaction is to lash out and get back at them?

I think it is a sign of maturity that I have managed not to make any snarky or mean comments to someone, even though […]

Three Ingredients

My mom shared this recipe with me, and I thought I’d pass it along to y’all:

What do you get when you combine an 18 oz. package of Oreos, 8 oz. of cream cheese, and a bag of chocolate chips? Oreo Truffles!

Take the bag of Oreos and pulverize them (a food processor works well […]

Blogstalking – Macro Guessing Game

This week in Knittyboard Blogstalking, we are supposed to post a macro shot of something in our home, and let people guess what it really is. Later in the week, we post the full shot of the item. I decided to let hubby loose with his camera for this one. He couldn’t decide on just […]

Cheapie Cheep Strikes Again!

Dear Cheapie Cheep,

I am not worthy. You are the most amazing SP. You have sent me such thoughtful, creative gifts, and this one just blew me away.



Seriously, folks. Check out the loot! Per the postcard, this is a “bath relaxation” themed package. All sorts of bath goodies, including a Lush […]

Hot Stuff, Part Deux

Ta da! Here ’tis, all modeled and everything. I am really thrilled with how this came out. I love the way it fits, and I really like the yarn (elann Connemara). Which is good, because I ended up with some leftovers. I’ll need to figure out what to do with those at some point.

Not […]
