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!

Grab a Seat.

This is going to be a long one, I’m warning you. You might want to grab yourself a fresh cup of coffee or tea, and possibly take a potty break before starting.

OK, you ready? Really, go pee. I’m not kidding.

So, one of my goals on the cruise was to finally finish what I […]


Sort of, anyway. 🙂 I’ve been madly crocheting to finish up the secret test project, and haven’t had much time to blog. It went in the mail today, so now that it’s done, hopefully I’ll catch up a little more. Until I get some pictures of the 2 (TWO!!!) pairs of socks I finished, let […]

Shamelessly Stolen from PennyKarma

Because I totally want to be her when I grow up. 😀

Your Score: Sofia Coppola Your film will be 57% romantic, 25% comedy, 24% complex plot, and a $ 38 million budget.

With few films under her belt (The Virgin Suicides, Lost In Translation, Marie Antoinette) as a writer/director, she’s already highly respected and […]

Home Again, Home Again…

…Jiggity jig.

So, yes, I’m home from SeaSocks. It was absolutely amazing, and one of the best experiences of my life. My photoset is here (It’s rather small – I spent more time with the videocam, which will be uploaded as soon as I figure out how to edit the stuff I took), and the […]

Sparkly Pr0n!

I picked this up at All About Yarn at their sale this past February.

Blue Heron Yarns Rayon Metallic in “Bluegrass”

I considered a Clapotis, but since the Tess Ribbon one languished for so long, I probably shouldn’t.

Now I just need to decide what I […]

Bears and Bugs

OK, not technically bears, and I left out the sheep. Plus, the pandas don’t actually do anything to the bamboo to make it yarn. But it was alliterative, and I can’t remember what pandas are officially. 🙂

Crystal Palace Panda Silk (52% bamboo, 43% merino, and 5% silk) in […]

The Anti-Cristi

See, I’m never going to be as fabulous and elegant as Cristi and her glass of wine. I’m really more of a beer kind of girl. So, since I finished my Ribbon Clapotis, I thought I should have the FO photoshoot as something of a more me-esque homage to her Ivy League Vest post.

So, […]

Week 3 Update!

Wow – 3 weeks already? Time flies! (Which reminds me of one of my favorite bad jokes: Time flies like an arrow. Fruit flies like a banana. Yeah, I know. I have a bizarre sense of humor.)

So, after the weekend of debauchery that was Maryland Sheep and Wool, I was not looking forward to […]

It Was a Good Weekend.

Truthfully, a VERY good weekend. I’m not good with the recapping, so I’ll probably leave that to Cristi or Amanda or Val.

The haul:

Top – an awesome sign that Betsy spotted today. I’m still debating whether it will go in the Oz-themed guest room or the kitchen (with my “Don’t make […]

And So It Begins

Guess who got nailed for speeding on the way up here…

Penny Karma – we HAD to take a picture of this for you, my dear.

The Maryland Sheep and Wool Friday Night Band:

Vaguely demonic-looking J on guitar, Kris on drums, Val on bass, and […]
