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!

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 the Rhodonite, because I don’t want a big pink stripe across it.

So – Peaseblossom, Knitty Rocks, Firebird, Fire on the Mountain, Titania.

I’m thinking the pink blends the Peaseblossom and Knitty Rocks, the red works from Knitty Rocks to Firebird, the Firebird brings in the orange that is also in FOTM, and the green in FOTM works with Titania. I’m going to stew on it over the weekend (and see what y’all think). Hopefully I’ll make up my mind by Monday. Ah, the trials of being a typical indecisive Libra…And for this week’s Yarn Pr0n offering (er… slightly late), we have the last of the Williamsburg acquisitions – Mountain Colors Half Crepe in “Chinook”. Maryanne, Carrie and I all picked this up in different colors. Carrie is working on a beautiful crocheted shawl she’s designing, and Maryanne and I are both planning to make the Fiber Trends “Charlotte’s Easy Lace Shawl” by Lily Chin. The ladies at Knitting Sisters had a sample of that shawl in this yarn, and it’s just gorgeous.
