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!

Do You Remember This?

I’m guessing not, because the last time you would have seen it would have been June 13, and the last time it actually made any progress was sometime last February (Blog post from March 6). Yeah… it’s been a while.

Anyway, to refresh your memory, that’s the Knit Picks Palette Fair Isle Cardigan. I’m […]

Yes, Another Silly Quiz

Spotted this one at Bonne Marie Burns’ blog.

Who is Your Ideal TV Boyfriend? Created by BuddyTV

I’ve quit watching The Office, because it got just too painful for me. I used to work in the office of a warehouse, and the guy who ran it was WAY too similar to the Michael Scott […]

Well, *I* think I’m funny…

Stole this one from Jo.


Your Score: the Provacateur (52% dark, 38% spontaneous, 42% vulgar)

your humor style: VULGAR | COMPLEX | DARKYou’ll crack on anything, and you’re often witty, even caustic, about it.Therefore, your sense of humor is polarizing. You’re transgressive, and you’ve got a seriously sharp ‘edge’–maybe too much for some […]

Pink? What the…

One thing you will notice if you peruse my stash, my wardrobe, pretty much my home in general is that you will not find much in the way of pink.

I blame my parents. Back in the early 1970’s, when they bought the house I grew up in, they painted my bedroom a shade […]

A WIP for a Friend

For those of you who know Yorkie from the Knittyboards, you know the difficult time she has been through in the last few weeks. I’m not going into the details here, because I don’t think it’s my place. Suffice it to say that I don’t know how she’s doing it.

Yorkie was one of the […]

Flotsam of my Mind

Catnip is hilarious. I have three cats. We got them a new climby-scratchy-tree thing, and sprinkled a bit of catnip on it to entice them to check it out. Simba went all crackhead-hyper crazy, and Rajah was more of a pothead-mellow. Too funny. (Rowena goes back and forth. Mostly mellow with occasional bouts of hyper.)


Oh, Friday. Right.

Almost forgot to post. Cristi would have my head, especially since I missed WIP Wednesday this week.

Another acquisition from the fabbo Charlotte Yarns in October.

Malabrigo Laceweight (OMGLOVE!) in “Applewood” (posing with the Scotian Silk you saw last week).

Lovely light caramel, with just a hint of rosy pink here and there.



AKA the Amazing Four-Day Shawl.

Cast on Thursday at knitting and finished last night.

I got a fair amount of the ruffle done Saturday night while shadowing the sound tech for Enchanted April (I’m running sound for some of the performances) and finished it off while watching “Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles” last night.

So, […]

See? I told you Tom kicks ass!

And for further proof, the jacket he did for Kris: Back view: Sleeve one: Sleeve two: Tom was going for a manly version of the traditional comedy and tragedy masks, and I think he did a damn good job, as does Kris. He’s THRILLED with it.


My Brother Kicks Ass.

You may remember my mentioning my younger brother Tom here before. He’s the one who gave me the kickass haircut and color when we went to Las Vegas (where he lives) in ’06, and the recipient of my first “We Call Them Pirates” hat last Christmas. Tom and I weren’t all that close when we […]
