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!

Oh, right. Wednesday. :)

I’m glad that our adventures with the plumbing amused all of you. No long-term issues going on, and we’re waiting for the estimate from the plumber to find out what’s ahead for the spring and the repairs. Oh, and I don’t believe that ANY of you wouldn’t have thought of the alternate meaning of “Kris’s Python”. I know y’all better than that.

Spanish Dancer is making progress. According to the calculations I’ve made, I’m about 45% of the way through the shawl, but that seems just insane. I’ll double-check myself, but if I’m right, woo hoo!

SpanishDancerWIP11-14Monday night, I started another project – Cherie Amour from knitty.com, using the Brooks Farm Solana that was featured in last Friday’s Yarn Pr0n post. (Hmm… I’m sensing a pattern here. I’ll have to think carefully before I decide what to post this week!) I started Monday night, and made it almost to the waist ribbing. By last night, I had finished the body and had picked up for the right sleeve. I’m doing my sleeves differently than the pattern calls for – top down, in the round, and without the cuff ribbing. I’ll either do a bell sleeve or a straight sleeve. I’m not sure yet.

CherieAmourWIP11-14The yarn is just wonderful to work with – soft and snuggly, nice stitch definition, and superwash to boot!
