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

Reason #847…

…why Knittyfolk rock.

It wasn’t enough that I got a TON of birthday wishes via email, blog comments, and my very own threads at the Knittyboard and Ravelry, but I also got lovely thoughtful gifts.

I don’t have a picture of it, but Kiddossk sent me a little surprise from the Fat Witch Bakery (tell […]

Behold the Result of a Decision!

See, when a decision actually gets made, I can make actual PROGRESS!

Yup – I finished the SP project, and I started Charlotte’s Web V2.0. You know what this means? ACTUAL WIP Wednesday posts! Aren’t you excited? ;)I did tweak the pattern slightly – the original calls for 2 repeats of the pattern in […]

To Distract You…

…from yet another week without WIP pictures (I’m almost done with the SP project, so normal pictures should resume next week), allow me to share with you the fabulousness that is my final Knittyboard SP9 package, which arrived today (OK, I picked it up today. My mailman tried to deliver it yesterday, but I wa […]

Massively Multipurpose Catch-Up Post

First of all, happy birthday to… me! That’s right – as of today, I am 34 years old. Maybe one of these days, I’ll even get around to growing up. (Oh, stop laughing. I didn’t say it was likely.)

Second – check out that Hats for Alex counter! Since Weezalana started her contest, I’ve gotten […]

Er… Yeah

Once again, you will find a sad lack of pictures on this WIP Wednesday post (I’m going to be kicked out of the club soon…). BUT! My folks were here from Thursday night until yesterday morning. The only knitting I got done was my part of the cooperative project with Carrie and Maryanne, and I […]

Yarn Pr0n and Not-Yarn Pr0n

So the folks arrived safely last night, and we met Amanda (her J was golfing), JMac and Mary Beth at DuClaw for the Twisted Kilt release. I’m pretty sure that by the end of the evening, all three of them were thinking, “Oh! THAT’s where she gets it from.” 😀

After dinner, Kris and Dad […]

Photo-free WIP Wednesday

Erm… yeah. I’m working on two things right now, but both of them are gifts, so I can’t actually post about them. I will say that one of them is for my SP and the other is a cooperative project with some friends, but that’s pretty much all I can reveal.

On the Charlotte’s Web […]

Juuuuust to beat a dead horse…

I have on more color combo, and I think it might be the winner. I definitely agree with those who have said that the Sherbet seems a little too bright for the rest of the colors (although I love it and I can’t wait to make socks from it!). I’m also a little concerned about […]

CW2, Colors, Take 2

Okay, it looks like options 1 and 3 were the winners (since 2 and 4 got a whopping one vote each…). However, I’ve gotten some alternate suggestions!

So, to refresh:

Option 1 Peaseblossom, Sherbet, Rhodonite, Firebird, Fire on the Mountain

Option 3 Peaseblossom, Sherbet, Rhodonite, Knitty Rocks, Fire on the Mountain

The new options:


The Problem With Charlotte’s Web?

It’s freaking ADDICTIVE! I so enjoyed making the first one that now I want to do another. And I think I’ve decided to. I’ve decided to use up some of my stash of Socks that Rock Lightweight to make a nice big version of the Charlotte’s Web – still five colors, but more repeats in […]
