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.

Post-Turkey Pr0n

While everyone recovers from yesterday’s food-fest, we here at Katydid Knits (when did I become a “we”?) are featuring soft, soothing alpaca pr0n this week. Specifically, two different colors of undyed alpaca from Stitches East.

First, a color the Yarn Barn of Kansas refers to as “Musk”. This is going to be a soft, snuggly […]

Awesome Quote of the Day

Courtesy of bluecanary on the Knittyboards, in reference to eyelash yarns:

“It’s called ‘novelty yarn’ for a reason. Trouble is, the novelty wears off fast!”

Recycled Yarn Pr0n

Since I’ve been at Stitches East all day (Yay Kaffe Fassett seminar and steeking class!), I haven’t had time to take any pr0n. So, I’m recycling some of my earliest “real” pr0n, which I actually took myself instead of making hubby do it. 😀 Next week, I’ll show off some of my Stitches Market purchases.
