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

Another meme!

What can I say – my parents are here for a visit. I’m not really all about taking pictures and stuff right now. 😀

Bold the ones you’ve read, italicize the ones you’ve started but haven’t finished, cross out the ones you hated, and underline the ones on your book shelf! Combine indicators as appropriate.


Food Meme

Found this on Serious Eats today (Can you tell I’m a fan? That’s where I found out about the Ramen birthday, too), and I thought I’d post this one. It’s similar to the knitting list that has been around for a while, but it’s foods. To quote from Very Good Taste (where SE found it):


Hot, Sweaty, and Dirty

Which is not nearly as enticing as it sounds, really. But, we have major progress on the porch!

As of lunchtime, we were here:

(Tell me why it is that in four-ish hours with five people on Sunday, we managed to get exactly 4 joists rafters up, but the two of us […]

I’m Covered in Sawdust Again

Because Kris took the day off (sort of – he’s on a conference call right now, which is why I’m on my laptop) so we can continue working on the porch. It’s a perfect day today – overcast and not super-hot out. I cut three joists myself while he started on his call, but the […]

Found Theme


Should be finalized soon.


ETA: Whee! I love my new theme! If anyone is wondering, it’s called “Atahualpa”, it’s uber-simple to customize colors and stuff, and it’s widget-friendly. Also, hubby found it first, and I completely stole it from him. 😀 One of the things I like about it is that I can […]

Olympics Fail, Porch Progress

Yeah, so, the Santa Fe Shawl? Not done. I took a break for a couple of days to make my Chrysanthemum Tea Skirt, which I totally love and wore this past Friday, but utterly failed to get pictures of. Anyway, I tried to get back into working on the shawl, but between the soul-crushing boredom […]

Ravelympics Update 4

And some other random stuff. 🙂

So current status of the shawl is…

52 of 82 motifs complete. Progress has slowed a bit, obviously. I’m thinking I might take a break from it and start the skirt, just to break the monotony. Plus, carrying around 4 different colors of yarn and changing […]


Not only does he have his own blog now (gratuitous plug #2! And thank you for those who have left him comments. It confused him nicely.), but hubby was sweet enough to answer the knitter’s spouse meme that has been going around. (Italics are my comments)

1)What is your favorite thing about my knitting? Maybe […]

Gratuitous Promotional Post!

OK, you know how I’m always telling you about my non-knitter friends who have blogs? And telling you to go read them? Well, add another one to the list.

Hubby’s blogging again! Go leave him a comment! Keep him posting!

He’s so going to kill me for this…

Ravelympics Update 3

I’m past halfway!

OK, not by much – that’s 45/82 motifs done, but I’m still on a good pace. By the way, that dark red flower-shaped motif up on the right corner is the upper right point, and the one with the blue marker is the bottom point. That should give you […]
