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.

Twinkle Party!

So, I’m sitting here on Thursday when the phone rings. It’s Annemarie, calling to see if I am going to StitchDC Georgetown for their Twinkle party. I hadn’t actually heard about it, but I am not exactly known for, um, turning down a trip to a yarn store. We made plans to grab dinner and […]

More Socky Pr0n!

Artsygal, she of the gorgeous laceweight seen here, has branched out into sock yarn. Unfortunately for my checkbook, she’s got some GORGEOUS colors.

Here we have “Iris”:

Dancing with the Stars – Weeks 1 and 2

Yes, that’s right – I’m hooked on Dancing with the Stars. Me, the queen of anti-reality tv, hooked on a reality show. I even mocked my Mom a little last year for voting for Emmitt Smith. I’ll take some ketchup with those words, please.

Yarn Nerd Pr0n

No, not actual nekkid pics of Adam. 😀 But, lovely pics of his equally lovely yarn, available at his shop.

900mHz Sock yarn in “Printed Circuit Board” – I saw this colorway in Adam’s etsy shop ages ago, but had trouble getting my etsy account open to pick it up then. Happily, he posted some […]

Haaaaave you met Morrigan?

(Anyone else a fan of “How I Met Your Mother“? Barney’s game of “Haaaaaave you met Ted?” Anyone?)

So, on my StitchDC trip, I finally scored a copy of the elusive No Sheep For You by the oh-so-fabulous Amy Singer. In flipping through it, I found this:

Stitch DC Pr0n, take 2

Some more goodies from my trip to Stitch DC two weeks ago.

Laines du Nord Mulberry Silk in “Berry Multi”:

No clue what it is going to be, but isn’t it gorgeous? I thought about making a silk Branching Out, but I realized that the colors are very similar to the bamboo one I […]
