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


Home from SAFF. It was awesome. Unfortunately, I woke up yesterday with the unholy mother of all colds (I’m actually worried it might be the flu). It was bad enough that I didn’t think I’d be able to finish the drive home yesterday. I was afraid I’d have to get a hotel room for the […]

Yarn Poison Friday

Sitting here on Turtlegirl‘s couch, posting pre-SAFF. Yay!

This is Storm Moon Knits’ Twilight Sock in “Mandragora” that I picked up from her at Stitches East. It’s gorgeous stuff.


Rhinebeck update

OK, first things first – Alke asked about the purpose of the box I was carrying in that first Rhinebeck picture. It was on its way to the Great Adirondack Yarn Company booth, because they volunteered to act as a dropoff spot for contributions to my Hats for Alex project. Between the box, MaryBeth Temple’s […]

Rhinebeck Pics

I’ll get to the recap soon (I hope – I’ve got to prep to head down for SAFF!), but I uploaded the pictures Kris took this weekend to Flickr.

(Click on the picture to go to the photoset)

What an amazing weekend. So many awesome people, such fantastic weather. Such fabulous yarn and fiber. Loved […]

YPF – Boogie Down

Well, what else should I call it? It’s “Disco Lights”, after all!

The Tilli Tomas Disco Lights in “Ruby Wine” for the Twilight Capelet. It’s a lovely deep red, slightly variegated (more like a kettle-dyed than a true variegated)

Happy Friday, and if you’re at Rhinebeck, look for me! Come say hi! I look […]

Charlotte’s Web 2.0 Modeled

Got some pictures tonight when Kris got home from work.

And seriously – this pattern is ridiculously addictive. I’m so in love with it, and as soon as I pulled with one off the blocking wires, my first thought was “Oh my God, it’s awesome. Amanda picked FAB colors!” The second? “I need to […]

Try not to faint.

But yes, I’m actually posting two days in a row!

Since I finished up CW2*, I started on the Twilight Capelet last night while watching Dancing With The Stars (Yes, I’m watching again. I’m just not doing the recaps. Although I am totally loving Sabrina Bryan. It’s her season if she wants it.). By the […]

Deep Inhale…

… *whoooooooooo* There. That should get the dust off this puppy.

As it was so subtly pointed out to me by someone on Googlechat last night, it’s been two weeks since my last blog entry. I didn’t plan for it to go that long, but sometimes life has other plans, you know?

So, since we […]

Shameless Plug!

But really, there is nothing to be ashamed about in plugging this.

The lovely Aimee of Fairie Knits (who I will be meeting at SAFF! Yay!) is doing the Walk to Cure Lupus, and she needs your help. Her goal is to raise $5000, and she’s about halfway there. So, if you can spare a […]
