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!

Knitting Blogs & Sites

I Have no WIPs to Show.

Not that I’m not working on anything, but the Ribbon Clapotis looks pretty much exactly the same (although it is a smidgen longer), and I am not allowed to show the test crochet project. I’m going to try to finish up the Clapotis on Friday night when my girls get here. (I’m just about to […]

Wow. Y’all Are Curious.

(And I know someone is going to call me out for using “y’all”…)

Anyway, those “metal things” on my porch aren’t actually metal. They are PVC pipe, painted silver. What are they? A game! Specifically, a game that a friend of ours invented called, erm, Testicle Toss.

Basically, you’ve got two of […]

Week 2 Update

Weight: 224.2

Bust: 46 (no change)

Waist: 38 (up 1/2″)

Hips: 47 (up 1/2″)

Meh. Gained another 2 pounds this week, and gained back half an inch on both waist and hips. Honestly, I’m not surprised. I’ve been pretty good about working out, but I’ve really been eating for crap. Especially this weekend. Had a […]

Do You See This?

All I know is, it better be freaking GONE by Saturday.

I feel like I need an ark today.

Oh, and the red Jeep? Yeah – that’s Serenity. As in, she of the leaking windshield. Sitting out in the rain. Again. Eesh.


Plumbing Update

So, I’m trying to get the house ready for an influx of crazy knitter friends this weekend for Maryland Sheep and Wool, and I throw in a load of laundry. By this point, you know what’s coming, don’t you?

Yup – f’er backed up again and spewed rinse water all over the floor. We heard […]

Saturday Evening Adventures

So, in yesterday’s mail, we got a menu from a new local restaurant – East Moon Asian Bistro. I looked over the menu and thought it looked damn good, so Kris and I decided that, since they deliver, we’d try them. I called to place an order, and was told that actually, they weren’t open […]

Yaaaaaarrrrrn Pr0n

OK, ok, I hope you’ll forgive me the awful pirate pun.

I picked up this Malabrigo Worsted when Aija was destashing a while ago, because I couldn’t resist the idea of a Malabrigo sweater for Kris in “Tortuga”.

You know, the island from Pirates of the Caribbean? So, yeah, […]

Another One Bites The Dust

Remember my buddy Steve that I told you about the other day? The one whose letter was published on The Consumerist?

We’ve convinced him to start a blog of his very own. 😀

And yes, this is a lame ploy to keep my posting streak going.

It’s Still Wednesday, Right?

So, since I finished the BSJ, I decided to pick up an oldie-but-goodie.

The Tess Designer Yarns Microfiber Ribbon Clapotis! (oops, blurry! Sorry!)

I picked up this yarn at last year’s Maryland Sheep and Wool, and I thought I’d give a shot at getting it done for this year’s festival in, uh, ten days.

I […]

First Update!

So, it’s Tuesday which means two things: one, I weighed in this morning, and two, I’m headed over to my friend MorninglightMama‘s to work out with her. We’ve decided to do the Evil DVD together on Tuesday and Thursday mornings.

I know some people suggested that I not do measurements every week, but I fully […]
