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!

Holy crap.

Did you guys WATCH that 4×100 Freestyle Relay? What a race!

See, what you probably don’t know about me is that when I was a kid (erm… junior high-ish), I swam. I won’t say competetively, because I was never very good. I had pretty decent form, but I was just not very fast. I LOVED […]

Ravelympics Update 2

So, as of midnight on Friday, I was here:

That’s 19 motifs completed out of 82, with ends all woven in.

As of a few minutes ago, I am here:

30 motifs complete, so about 35%. And you will notice, no dangly ends. I decided after weaving in all […]


Go wish Cristi a Happy Birthday!

And then, click on this and make yourself completely crazy. (Blame Steve. He sent me the link. Evil bastard.)

As of 11:02 am, I had 7 motifs complete, out of 82 for the whole shawl.

I love the […]

I? Am insane.

I realize that this comes as not really any level of a shock to most of you (particularly those who have met me in person). So, I finally decided yesterday that I am going to do the Ravelympics, right? Well, now I’ve decided that I want to do TWO events. I’m doing the Santa Fe […]

And for the latest entry in the “WTF Files”

So, you may remember a while back, when it rained so hard that a frog was stuck on my kitchen window? Welcome to the latest random wildlife sighting in my world.

Tonight is trash night, so I went out the side door to grab the can and drag it to the curb. Before I stepped […]

Yeah, yeah.

I’m lame, I know. I am just not feeling the blogging mojo right now – I think it’s a combination of things, not least of which is the weather, which is making me not feel like knitting. No knitting = little to blog about.

Anyway, yes, I am still planning to update the design here, […]
