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!

OK, technically, mitten. Ok, technically only HALF a mitten. But look how cute!

Dragonflies on the back of the hand:

Flowers on the palm side, which will become stripes above the thumb (the white crochet thread is waste yarn for the thumb.

That’s right – I finished her up last night!

I even managed the grafting at the end of the tubular cast-off on the second try. That’s a fairly huge accomplishment for me.

It goes beautifully with my new shawl pin that I bought at Stitches this year.

It’s Done!

No, not the sweater. Carmelo’s still got about 6 inches of sleeve left to go. I finished up the handspun I showed you the other day!


Isn’t it purty? It’s very soft, too. And I think it’s fairly well balanced! Yay! It’s drying now after a nice soak […]

Checking in

You know, it’s amazing what you can get done when you actually sit down and do it. During rehearsal Friday night, I bound off the front edge of the first half of Carmelo. After a weekend of trying to stay out of Kris’s way while he was working on NaNoWriMo (still going!), I am here:


Y’all Crack Me Up.

Seriously. Ok, first, thank you for the lovely compliments on the sweater – I adore it, and Kris is really thrilled with it. Bonus – he wore it all day yesterday, and so far, no pilling! Yay! And Yorkie, I must correct you a bit – I saw him first, my dear. But I’m sure […]

NaKniSweMo08 Complete!

NaNoWriMo08… still in process.

Explaining to Meeko that claws + sweater = repercussions for the owner of said claws.

Plotting the placement of the shed.

Squinting at the sun (it was the only shot I got of the collar. 🙂 )

Chatting with […]

Guess what this means…

That’s right – it’s DONE! I finished the knitting yesterday morning, wove in the last of the ends last night, and it’s soaking now. I’m hoping it dries quickly so that I can get some good modeled shots of it tomorrow. In the meantime:

And now, I think I’m […]

My One-Armed Man

OK, one-SLEEVED, technically.

Finished up the first sleeve at knitting today. I’m hoping to get the second one done tomorrow – I might actually have a NaKniSwe1/2Mo!

Another NaKniSweMo Update

We have sleeveage! Ok, the start of sleeveage, anyway.

I’ve decreased from 72 to 58 stitches on the first sleeve, and I need to get to 30 before I start the ribbing. I finished up the hem at the bottom a couple of days ago, and I’m very happy with how it […]
