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.

Fleece Artist Pr0n!

Fleece Artist Merino Sock yarn in “Paris”. Purchased from my fave online yarn store, Little Knits. This will be socks for me. (I also got another color that will be socks for Kris, but that’s for next week)

And for Jenneke, the current state of her Swap Socks: We’ve passed the […]

Sock Swap!

Hi Jenneke!

Thought I’d post a progress pic of your socks, so you can see that I really am working on them. 😀

Two toes, happily hanging out on the needles: Obligatory pr0nny shot of the stitch pattern: It’s a fun pattern* to work. I’m enjoying it, and I’ve got it pretty much memorized (I […]

Progress!

I’ve been stealthily working on a project of late (I needed to step away from the log cabin blanket for a little while), and although it did pop up in the sidebar with its own progress bar, I never actually mentioned it here. I finally cast on my Simple Knitted Bodice! Turtlegirl scored the yarn […]

I should say something profound…

… since I’m now a blogger with 200+ posts, but, yeah. Profound is not so much “me”. Silly, yes. Full of ridiculously bad jokes, absolutely. But profound, nah.

Aaaaaaanyway. I’m participating in the Sock Swap over on the Knittyboards, and the yarn I ordered for my swap pal Jenneke arrived yesterday. One of the advantages […]

Sooper-Special Pr0n!

I’ll get to the photos in a moment, but first I want to say a big YAAAAAY! and congratulations to my dear, dear friend CBear and her hubby, who welcomed their beautiful little girl Elizabeth Noelle (“Zellie”) early this morning (Yes, it is still Thursday as I write this).

OK, on to the pr0n. You […]

Non-knitting FO

Heck, a non-fiber arts FO!

I picked up a copy of the Panera Bread Cookbook (because I loooooove Panera) last week, and last night, I made this: Would you like a closer look? That would be the Three Cheese Bread from the aforementioned cookbook. Possibly the easiest bread I have ever made, and so SO […]

Yarn Pron Friday!!

Yeah… I’ve run out of clever names for YPF posts. Maybe I’ll be inspired before next week. 🙂

This week, we have some of Kris’s very fave fiber to photograph (Hey! Alliteration!): sari silk. He did some shots a while back of a skein that was swapped to me by Margaret9, and they were gorgeous. […]

Almost Pickup-less Log Cabin Tutorial

So, like I said, I hate picking up stitches. OK, “hate” may be a little strong, but I really don’t enjoy it. And when there is as much in a project as in a log cabin blanket, well, I was going to figure out an alternative.

To start the blanket, follow the instructions as given […]

Baby New Year Yarn Pr0n!

Wow… THAT could be taken so very badly…

Anyway, welcome to the first YPF of 2007! This week, we feature some Noro Kureyon I picked up from Little Knits (We *heart* Little Knits!!!) to go with some purchased earlier for Lizard Ridge.

First, color #170

And three shots of color #164

Have […]

New Year, New Project!

So, as we were packing to leave Pittsburgh after Christmas, Kris got a call on his cellphone that our friends Ed and Karin had become parents! Their little guy was born on the 26th. We haven’t been able to meet him yet, since we had to get back for Kris to be at work on […]
