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.

Warm and Cozy Pron

This week, we have Knit Picks Sock Sampler in Warm Colors. I ordered this (along with the Neutrals) with plans to make myself a sweater using some techniques I learned in my “Stashology 201” class with Christine Bylsma at Stitches East this fall. (GREAT class. Awesome teacher. If you ever have the chance to take […]

Heartfelt Pr0n

So, one of the many joys of being at Rhinebeck this year was getting to meet so many people that I’ve only known online previously. There was a lot of “squee”ing and hugging and laughing. It was just awesome.

One of the lovely people I met was ZantiMissKnit, who I’ve known on the Knittyboards for […]

Hold Me Closer…

…Spanish Daaaaaaaaaancer. Yeah, yeah, I know. It’s “Tiny Dancer”, but mine’s funnier. So yes, it’s done! Can you tell I love it? 00 Because I do!

It’s Still Wednesday!

Not by much, but it is!

Not much to show this week on Kris’s scarf, because my heart (and my attention) has been stolen by this: Jeanie! In the “Dragonfly” Hand Maiden Sea Silk I showed you last Friday.Honestly, this stuff is FABULOUS. It’s completely wonderful to knit, and the drape is fantastic. And the […]

Another Week, Another Adventure

Although this time, it’s not us.

Oh – and my personal photographer was under the weather this weekend, so no pics of Spanish Dancer just yet. Hopefully today.

Anyway… I’m sitting here last night a little after 11, poking around on the Ravelry forums and the Knittyboards, when my phone rings. My first thought was […]

Buggy Pr0n

Ok, that sounds a little scary, but really, it’s not! I got an email from Little Knits a couple of weeks ago about some sales, and I was looking at the HandMaiden Sea Silk. I’ve looked at it before, and have resisted, but this time I just couldn’t. This color called to me. Aside from […]

I Don’t Want To Discuss It.

No, the frigging shawl isn’t done yet. Three thousand stitches, people. It’s a LOT to bind off. So, I’m still slogging through that, and nothing else is progressing at the moment.

I did, however, finally get some pictures of my finished Cherie Amour. So, there we have it! I’m really quite thrilled with how it […]

A Small Distraction

While I continue to slog through the ruffle. I did get the final knit row done last night at rehearsal. I’m on book for rehearsals right now (probably running sound for the actual show), and one of the guys came up to me last night and asked “How do you do that?” I asked him […]

Welcome to My Personal Garterstitch Hell

Spanish Dancer is approaching the finish line. Technically, I’m on the last row before the bind-off. Unfortunately, with Spanish Dancer, that means that this row (and therefore the bind-off) have somewhere in the neighborhood of 3200 stitches. Each. I’m helping out with a production of “Enchanted April” over at Colonial Players, and I did get […]

More Local Pr0n!

The rest of the goodies I picked up from Neighborhood Fiber Co.

Victorian Bulky in “Mt. Pleasant” and Loft in “Mt. Pleasant”. These will be combined into a scribble lace scarf, courtesy of the free pattern in Karida’s booth.
