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 7

The last of the STR from Sheep and Wool – Mediumweight in Seastone

And yes, I am aware that three of the five colors I bought were blues and greens (Plus the green Footzey Foo heavyweight I used for my Red Dwarf Socks). It was slightly less obvious when I was also picking up […]

WIP Wednesday 3

Yes, I know. I missed Handspun Monday this week. I’m lame.

So, anyone care to take a stab at what the WIP of the week is here? Yup. Molly’s Sleeves. I really, really hoped I’d have them done for this week, but I just didn’t quite make it. The sleeve on the right is done, […]

MDS&W Pr0n – Week 6

STR Heavyweight in Rose Quartz

WIP Update

So, I’ve been surprisingly faithful to one project since last week’s WIP Wednesday post. In fact, other than swatching for the Mystery Stole 3 KAL (more on that in a minute), I’ve only worked on my Molly Weasley Sleeves.

Last week, I showed you this picture, but like I said then, that wasn’t an accurate […]

Mystery Stole 3 KAL Poll

So, I have 4 potential options for the yarn/bead combo for my Mystery Stole. I’ve got Zephyr silk/wool in two different colors, and 2 different colors of beads. I hoped that when they arrived, I’d have and instant “Aha!” moment and known which one to use. In truth, not so much the case. So, I’m […]

Remember Zaphod?

To refresh your memory, when last we saw my lovely new Hitchhiker wheel Zaphod, he looked like this: And now? Well, after a Saturday afternoon with Carrie and her new Hitchhiker Ford, Zaphod looks like this: And yes, the back of the wheel says “Don’t Panic!” What else would you expect it to say? Be […]

MDS&W Pr0n – Week 5

And more STR from The Fold – Mediumweight in “Algae”

Thanks for all the, erm, kind words about my WIPs. And the beads for my Mystery Stole arrived today. Both colors are really pretty. Once the yarn gets here, I may have to ask for some input on which combination to use.


WIPping ‘Em Out!

Ok, I THINK this is all of my current WIPs, but I’m not swearing to that. 🙂

Current project, not a current picture.

This is the “Molly’s Sleeves” pattern from Jo at Fruitcats.com. I am making it in Valley Yarns Longmeadow, which is a cotton/microfiber blend. I really like the yarn, and the pattern is […]

Being Alive

So, to go along with the brand-new “WIP Wednesday” and the ongoing “Yarn Pr0n Friday”, Carrie has suggested that Mondays become “Handspun Monday”. So, here is my very first contribution:

This is some Jacob Humbug (which I think means the mixed colors, but please correct me if I am wrong) that I picked up from […]
