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!

Got some pictures tonight when Kris got home from work.

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 make another one.”It’s a sickness, I swear.

The deets: from neckline to hem, it’s BMFA STR Lightweight in Peaseblossom, Titania, Fire on the Mountain, Firebird, and Knitty Rocks. I did 2 repeats of the single color sections, and one of the 2-color sections until I got down to the Firebird. I did 1-1/2 repeats of the single color sections of Firebird and Knitty Rocks because I was concerned about running short. I’m not positive, but I think I made the right choice.

As you can see, it’s HUGE. I’m 5’9”-ish, and it’s wider than my armspan. And clearly, this is the way to deal with the issue of triangular shawls acting as an arrow pointing at your butt – just make it long enough that it goes right past your butt and points at your knees. 😀
