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!

Knitting Blogs & Sites

Yeah, yeah…

I suck, ok? I know I do. Cristi suggests we race to see who finishes Tomato first, and I am crazy enough to put sock yarn on the line. So today, she posts this. Yeah, she’s done. Want to know how “close” it was? This is where I am:

(That’s Lion Cotton Ease in “Popsical […]

You Wanted FO Pics?

You got ’em!

First – my Chrysanthemum Tea Shawl from Amazing Crochet Lace. This is a FABULOUS book. If you crochet, you really should give it a look.

Blocking: Artfully draped over, er, a box:

And now, semi-knitting FO. I went to Ikea (Ah, how I love thee…) last Friday night (while Kris was […]

Claudia Handpaints Pr0n

Here are the two colors of Claudia Handpaints sock yarn that I am using for my Chevron Scarf.

Eat Your Veggies (Best. Color name. Ever.):

Caribbean Blue:

Happy Friday! (And yeah, I owe FO pics. I’m hoping to take them this weekend, finally. It’s been an odd week around here.)

ETA: For Zonda: […]

Dancing with the Stars – Week 6

First of all, I blame Turtlegirl for the fact that, instead of working on the SEVEN projects currently in my sidebar, I cast on today for “Tomato” from No Sheep for You. See, she was talking about working on her Textured Tunic, and that since it is now finished she was going to start Tomato. […]

Cheap Pr0n

OK, not really cheap, per se, but at least on sale. I scored these at the Knit Happens sale a couple of weeks ago.

Alchemy Silk Purse in Rust Red and Synchronicity in Foxglove:

I have a FO or two to show you, but I need my photographer for that, and he’s stuck at work […]

Dancing with the Stars – Week 5

Well, I was half right last week. And at least the half was that Leeza was leaving. And I totally didn’t notice until they mentioned it that there are only two women celebrities left!

Week 5 – The Samba and the Rhumba

Ian & Cheryl – Ian is having WAY too much fun. The more […]

WIPs, FOs, and the Kindness of Knitties

So, I did actually finish that crocheted scarf that I showed you, and courtesy of the crappy-ass weather we’ve been having, I’ve been wearing it quite a bit. Here ’tis: I also finished the Counterpoint scarf I’ve been working on as a “Congratulations” gift for my friend Hillary, who is off to NYU this fall […]

Twinkle Pr0n!

The loveliness that I picked up at the Twinkle Party with Annemarie 2 weeks ago. 🙂

Twinkle Handknits Soft Chunky in “Haze” (Probably will be the Princess Capelet from Big City Knits.)

And Twinkle Handknits Kid Mohair in “Dusty Rose” (Will be the Mohair Shrug from Big City Knits)Speaking of Annemarie, I saw her today […]

Dancing with the Stars – Week 4

And here we go for week 4! Is it really Monday night already?

And for the record, Len is a bitter, bitter man. He actually took the time to research how much time people were spending in training? He needs to get a hobby. Maybe he should learn to knit! 😀

Week 4 – […]

April Fool Pr0n

OK, not really April Fool, since it’s the sixth, but I’m running low on clever titles. 🙂

Bamboo, courtesy of the kickass sale at Discontinued Brand Name Yarns. It was one of those “We can’t tell you what it actually is, but you usually pay a lot more” deals. SWTC Bamboo is one of my […]
