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.

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 about a year and a half now. When I met her, one of the first things she said to me was “I have something for you!” And she handed me this:

She remembered my mentioning an offhand comment on the boards that I was a fan of ribbon yarn (which I am). She had this Crystal Palace Deco Ribbon (color #121) that really didn’t appeal to her, thought of that comment, and when she saw I was coming to Rhinebeck, she brought it for me.

Isn’t she a total sweetie? Actually, yarn present aside, she really is a total sweetie. It was awesome to get to chat with her while we were there.

And I don’t know about any of you, but I have major plans for tonight.

I’ve been waiting for this movie for a long, loooooooong time. (Oh, and here is the Washington Post’s review, from whence I ganked the pic)

Swing your razor wide, Sweeney!

  • how nice! and it’s sooo pretty! 🙂

  • at last! my arm is complete again!

    I can’t wait!

  • *squee*

    Oh and beautiful yarn! How sweet!

  • I’m jealous. Zanti’s on my top 10 knitties I want to meet someday (don’t worry you’re on there too! 😉 )

  • Ava

    thanks for refering us to the review of Sweeney Todd. I wasn’t going to see it, but will now! I’m amazed that Johnny Depp has turned into such a good actor.

  • Xiris doesn’t know it yet – but I’ve arranged for a babysitter for a WHOLE day so we can drive into the city to have dinner and see this movie… for our anniversary.

    I can’t wait. I’ve been waiting for sooooo very long for this movie…

  • ooh, nice! I like ribbon yarn too, although I’m never sure what to make with it.

    I want to go see this too, but I’m so not into going by myself. I’m going to have to do some fast talking I think. Enjoy!

  • That is a beautiful colored yarn! Don’t you just love the knittyboard vibes! I’m excited for Sweeney Todd, too. But I’m gonna have to wait a while–Enchanted just finally got to my theatre, so this will be some wait . . .

  • Lovely yarn!

    Sweeney has always been my favorite musical, I don’t quite dare see this movie. I’m afraid I wouldn’t like what they did with it and get really bummed.

  • Did you love it as much as I did?? I’m so happy they didn’t make a horrible film out of this musical.. there are things I’d change, but all and all I loved it.

    Pretty ribbon yarn too… 😀

  • OK, so how’d you like the movie? Emily and I are going to try to see it tomorrow. Yes, I know it’s rated R and she’s just short of being 15. According to the reviews I’ve read, the R rating is due to the gore factor, and I think Em will handle that better than I will.
