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!

PennyKarma, this is how much I love you.

HPIM0094In honor of your annual contest, my dear, here I am, in my prepped-for-Oscar finery: hair pulled back in a series of it’s-too-short-for-just-one ponytails, a 15-year-old Greek Week t-shirt (Yes, not only am I old enough that I was in college 15 years ago, I was also Greek. Kappa Delta, baby!), cropped workout pants, and white socks. (I’m going to hit the treadmill at some point tonight, so I’m all dressed for it.) And the closest I get to a red carpet is my beloved red leather sofa (God bless you, Ikea…)

You will notice that my Fair Isle cardi is by my side, all ready for some progress during the ceremony. I’m on stripe 7 of 15 on one sleeve, 6 of 15 on the other. I’m not holding out much hope that I will be done by the end of February like I had hoped. Damn flu knocked me flat for a solid week, and I was so wiped out and feverish that I didn’t knit a damn thing. It will, however, be done as soon as humanly possible. It is NOT going to wait until next February.

I’m prepping for a visit this coming weekend from two of my favorite Knittyheads, but I am planning to make a concerted effort to actually post a bit this week.

  • Damn girl has it been THAT long since you’ve blogged? Are you joining the Yarn Pr0n of the MONTH club?

    So glad to see you! I was beginning to get worried out here….I even picked up my own needles again after a near year hiatus. Hope you’re really feeling lots better!

  • dude, I’m digging that little laptoplapboard thingy!

  • I am so humbled by this outpouring of love from your gorgeous self! I would totally make out with you.

    Dude, I’m drunk.

  • I was also in workout wear for the Oscars, since I ran earlier. I should have had a beer. Love your set-up, especially the couch.

    (p.s. I was an Alpha Gamma Delta…gosh that was a long time ago.)

  • Yorkie

    You’d have to *hic* stand in line, you hussy…she lives in MY hometown.

    Back off…

    I think you shoulda sprawled a bit more, Pam, and wrapped a grape vine round your head. Also, you should be holding aloft a large plastic cup bearing the title GREEK WEEK full of Boone’s.

    THEN you would complete the picture. WOOT!

  • Plastic cup of Boone’s or not, I just wish I looked as good as you do sitting on your couch in an old tee-shirt and workout pants. I hope that doesn’t sound creepy. I’m just sayin’.

    I absolutely L O V E that red couch!
    That seals it, I’m getting some reupholstering done!

  • If only we could all look so beautiful in workout garb!

    You look great!

    and that sweater looks amazing – can’t wait to see the finished project!

    Oh – and “All Hail Ikea!”

  • Rebel

    But where’s the champagne? You can’t have an Oscar party without booze! 😉

    Love the couch.

  • I’m just amazed… fair isle + blogging + tv… that would end up with me drinking straight from the bottle. The heck with the cup.

  • I love that sofa! OMG! I want it! LOL
