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!

MDS&W Pr0n – Week 2

So, while we were making a run back to the car with load #1 of stuff on Saturday of MDS&W, we paused at the Brooks Farm booth. Cristi was eyeing the sock yarns, Jas was schmoozing with a woman she was talking to about carrying her yarns, and as I was looking at the baskets, […]

Tastes like fried chicken

‘How will you be defined in the dictionary?’ at QuizGalaxy.com

Ironically, I make a pretty mean fried chicken, particularly for a Yankee. 😀


Dancing with the Stars – Week 10

Well, folks, here we are!

Week 10 – FinalsJudges’ Choice Round:Laila & Maks – Paso Doble – I’m sort of surprised that the judges picked this for Laila and Maks, becuase I don’t think it plays to her strengths. The extension on her legs when she kicks isn’t great (her knees are usually bent […]

MDS&W Pr0n – Week 1

So, I thought about posting the loot from MDS&W in the order it was purchased, but I decided instead to just post what I’m inspired to each week. 🙂

This week’s subject was purchased from Mohair in Motion, who were in one of the tents on the entrance end of the fairgrounds. We were walking […]

The "What Have You Done" Knitting Meme

I figured what the heck, why not do it. 🙂 I’m not tagging anyone, but if you want to do it, go for it!

Bold for stuff you’ve done, italics for stuff you plan to do one day, and normal for stuff you’re not planning on doing.

Dancing with the Stars – Week 9

But before we get to my ramblings about DWTS, we have socks!!

Recently, Cristi published her Red Dwarf Socks pattern. Since I had some fabbo STR Heavyweight from MDS&W, I knew the two were made for each other. I cast on last Monday night at my monthly SnB and finished them up (after two days […]

Green Pr0n

Thank you for the good wishes on overcoming my cold. It’s definitely improving. Maybe tonight I’ll be able to sleep without being propped up to prevent coughing. I definitely have my appetite back, too.

This is the last of the pre-MDS&W pr0n I have stockpiled, so you’ll have to wait until next week to start […]

Dancing with the Stars – Week 8

I’m watching this on my faithful TiVo this morning through a haze of snot. I’ve gotten nailed by a nasty, nasty cold with an accompanying sore throat. I’m drinking lots of tea and plan on existing on pasta and chicken broth for the rest of the day.

Week 8 – Two Dances!

Ballroom Round:Ian & […]


It was a wild and wooly (Hee!) weekend here, thanks to Turtlegirl‘s arrival on Thursday afternoon and Artsygal‘s on Friday night for the Maryland Sheep and Wool Festival.

We had a complete blast all weekend, starting with a Friday morning trip to Cristi’s fave spot to visit when she comes up – Ikea! I’m sure […]

Future Lady E

Ah, Silk Garden, how do I love thee…

Color #243, which will be a Lady Eleanor shawl.

And I did finish Tomato yesterday. I’m quite happy with it, including the minor tweaks I made to the pattern. FO pics a bit later, since I’m wearing it to MDS&W. Yes, Cristi and I decided to be […]
