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!

YPF – Drama and Dragons

AGES ago (like, pre-MDS&W) Artsygal had a shop update that included a color I needed. No, truly needed. HAD to have. And really, it was all about the name. (I’m a sucker for a great color name. That name? “Drama Queen” Need I say more? 😀

And thank you all for your […]

WIP Wednesday – Here Be Dragons

Well, almost-dragons, anyway.

The Emerald is all assembled and just waiting for his eyes to be embroidered. I’m pretty happy with him. The Sapphire pieces are to the right left, and the Amethyst are to the left right (Sorry – was thinking from the POV of the Emerald dragon…). I am hoping to get […]

Five hours thirty-four minutes

That’s how long it took me. I got home at 12:15, settled into the recliner at 12:30, and finished at 6:04. I’m not posting anything about it here for a while (and probably not until after a second reading), because I’m not spoiling anyone.

Thursday evening, Kris and I popped in our copy of HP […]

YPF – The Harry Potter Edition

Ok, so this post has absolutely nothing to actually do with Harry Potter, but it’s THAT day, so I figured I might as well call it that. 🙂 I’m posting this a little early, and then I am putting myself under a media embargo until after I finish the book. I don’t want to be […]

WIP Wednesday, Mystery Stole Edition

So, Norberta #1 hasn’t made any actual progress since I posted the pics this weekend, but I did finish up Clue #3 on the Mystery Stole. Here’s how it looks as of now:

Yes, that’s right – for you, my dear readers, I even broke out the blocking wires. (OK, and I really, really […]

A FO and a New WIP!

So, at my knitting group meetup on Thursday, I finished the Log Cabin Baby Blanket! Amanda even took a shot of me being triumphant with her camera phone:

(And yes, I am fully aware that I look like a complete dork)

This gives a better idea of the colors:

I ended up using […]

I’d Better Get This Up Fast

Or I’ll be in trouble with YPF BossLady. 😉 (Of course, she’s had enough trouble fighting with Lenny the Tech-Lack-of-Support Guy that she might not notice…)

I’ve got a lot to catch up on, but it’s been one of those weeks, so I’ll try to get to it this weekend. Until then, pr0n!

I ordered […]

Rockin’ Girl Bloggers

So, since the lovely Jacque awarded me the title of Rockin’ Girl Blogger, I now get to do the same with 5 other people.

PennyKarma – You crack me up with your tales of your crazy in-laws, and the Aldis, and your run-ins with crazy parents. How you keep that amazing sense of humor is […]

Pre-yarn Pr0n

First, thank you all for your lovely comments on my Molly Sleeves. I’m kind of in love with them, so it’s nice to see that other people like them as well.

Now, on to the pr0n! This week, we have some pre-yarn. This is some spinning fiber I picked up at (all together now) Maryland […]

WIP Wednesday

So, I finally got to start the Mystery Stole. I didn’t have a chance this weekend, because we had a friend of ours visiting, so I waited to cast on until Monday night at my once-a-month knitting group. I made it most of the way through chart A while I was there, and finished up […]
