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.

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 […]

Arrrrrrgh!

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.

THANK YOU!!!

-Trillian

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 […]
