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 – Williamsburg, Week Two

Today, we have some lovely Claudia Handpaints Linen in “Blue Fields”

Isn’t it gorgeous? I just picked up a copy of Folk Style today, and I’m thinking that the lovely green shawl in there (Kate Gilbert’s “Paisley Shawl”) might be the destiny of this yarn.Oh, and regarding the blog post title from the last […]

"I took one look at her boobs and thought ‘She’s not with us’"

AKA – Philly Knittyfest ’07. (I’ll explain that title in a bit.)

I was going to write a big long post about the weekend, and recap everything, but then I thought about it. It’s about as much fun to read a blog post like that as being forced to sit through your neighbor’s vacation slides. […]


In a shocking twist unforseen by the knitting world, a crime against fashion was perpetrated this weekend by superstar Amy R. Singer. She was photographed during an appearance at Loop wearing this… erm… ensemble.

Clearly, it started to affect Amy’s behavior after a few moments.

Here, it would appear it had taken over […]

Yarn Pr0n Friday – Williamsburg Edition, Week One

So, last Wednesday (the 15th) Carrie, Maryanne, Carol and I piled into the car and had ourselves a little road trip down to Williamsburg, VA. You can see Carrie’s recap of the trip here – I’ll sum it up this way: We started laughing when we left the house at 8:30 in the morning, and […]

Hats for Alex Contest

Like I mentioned yesterday, the fabulous Weezalana has taken the Hats for Alex project to her (very sweet and generous) heart and is running a little contest to help me meet the goal of 250 hats for this year.

You can see all the details (and the prizes she is offering) here, but let me […]

WIP Wednesday… sorta

OK, I’m cheating a little on today’s WIP Wednesday post. My Mystery Stole is 5 rows + the bindoff away from being done (hopefully later today so I can block it tonight and have pics tomorrow), my Clapotis and Chevron scarf both look exactly the same, only longer. So, no pictures.

Instead, I want to […]

YPF – Visiting Knitty Edition

Last Wednesday (the 8th, not the 15th), I got to add another name to the list of nifty Knittyheads that I’ve met in person. The lovely jpknits was in town with family, and sent me a message on Tuesday that she had a little time before her flight on Wednesday, and would I like to […]

Birthday Pr0n

No, not my birthday – Cristi’s! So, first things first:

*clears throat*

*sings loudly*

Happy Birthday to you! Happy Birthday to you! Happy Birthday, dear Cristiiiiiiiiiiiii! Happy Birthday to you!


And now, some pr0n. This was sent to me by the lovely Penny_Karma in a swap, along with some other goodies (Rubber duckie notecards, […]

I Didn’t Think It Was Raining THAT Hard!

We finally got some long-overdue rain last night, and while it was a pretty hefty storm, I certainly didn’t think it rated Biblical status. Until I went into the kitchen and saw this:

Yes, that’s right. There is a frog on my window. Bizarre.

In other news, I did something today that I have […]

This Was The Fest That Was

Also known as “Please don’t notice that I have no exciting progress for WIP Wednesday”.

So, yes. This past weekend was the annual event we call EdFest. For those of you unfamiliar, this is a gathering of a group of hubby’s college friends held the third weekend in July (usually – there was a minor […]
