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!

Things I Learned

1. If one is going to spend the afternoon driving around Red Rock Canyon in a convertible on a beautiful sunny day, it’s generally a good idea to wear sunscreen.

2. I do, in fact, still tan like a lobster (as Kris put it).

3. Red Rock Canyon is spectacularly beautiful, and was actually worth […]

TWO Finished Objects!

OK, so only one of them was my work. The other one was my brother’s.

Presenting Something Pink, and my kickass new ‘do!

Please ignore the vaguely demonic facial expression. Not quite sure what that’s all about…

So, I have BANGS! I haven’t had bangs in forever. And he took out the […]

Sitting in the Airport

An hour from the flight. Yay!

I got the baby sweater thisclose to being done last night and this morning – I’ve got 1-1/2 stripes and the ribbing to do on one sleeve and that’s it. So, I opted to leave it at home rather than wrestle DPN’s in a center seat (ugh). Instead, this […]

Woo Hoo Wednesday

Not just WIP Wednesday because…

Something Pink is done! But, I’m a big tease, because you don’t get pictures yet. It’s coming with me to Vegas, and I’ll have pictures of it and whatever new hair Tom does for me on Friday. 😀

Instead, check out the fastest baby sweater EVER.


I Hate Plumbing.

Remember this little adventure?

Yeah… the plumbing issues are back. I was sitting here on the couch, having happily just bound off my Something Pink (Yay!). So, I tossed it in the washer (yay Cotton Ease) and set it on the handwash cycle, and then went back to my spot on the couch.

And then, […]

A Call for Generosity

Betsy is a dear, dear friend. She and I met because our husbands went to Penn State together, and I feel so lucky that I’ve gotten […]

I like this one!

I stole this one from Carmen. 😀

You excel at solving other people’s problems.Occasionally, you do get a little selfish and persuade people to do things that are only in your interest.You are usually […]

More Piiiiiiiink

“Something Pink” progresses well – at this rate, I might actually be able to have it done before we leave for Las Vegas next Thursday. I’m looking forward to the trip, and I’m hoping I can take this with me.

I’ve got another 2-3 inches of the ribbing to finish (oddly, […]

My Boys Are Back!

Oh, Leonard, Sheldon, Raj, and Howard, I’ve missed you so very, very much. It’s nice to see you back and in full-on comedic shape. I heart “The Big Bang Theory“. (Seriously -if you are a geek, love a geek, know a geek, have ever TALKED to a geek, watch it. It’s very, very accurate, funny […]
