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

Well, fuck.

She won her appeal. She’s getting a new damn trial.

Please say a prayer for all of Alex’s family today. They’re going to need all the strength they can muster.

Song Of The Day

Can’t imagine why this one has been stuck in my head lately… (BTW, kinda NSFW. Just a warning.)

And if you’ve never seen it, the rest of the show is just as funny, if not funnier.

Quick Favor?

Can y’all do something for me? Kris sent in a submission to the FAIL Blog a while back (like, when we were doing the show), and it’s up for voting today. So, if you could go here, scroll down to “Fire Code Fail” (Yes, that is a real picture. It’s from the basement of the […]

We’ve been here since Friday night. In the […]

And I promise, it’s not going to be all-Steelers, all-the-time around here. I’ve even finished some knitting – I just need to get pictures in, well, daylight. 🙂

With Apologies…

And thanks to Hockeymom for finding it. 😀

Now, I just need to decide what to make for the Super Bowl party (conveniently at my Phoenix-native friend Irene’s house) – Primanti-style sandwiches, perhaps? 😀

I Have Only Two Words.


We Have Cuffs!

I’ve got lots of yarn left, so now I just need to decide how long to make them. Still entirely in love with them, though!

And if you are wondering, those are my fabulous dragonfly sock blockers made by Cristi. I realized when I put the socks on them that I never […]

Leyburn Update

I’m up to the heel on my STR Leyburn Socks, and I’m completely in love with them.

The color isn’t very accurate in that shot, because I took it indoors at night, but you can see the pattern. It’s awesome. The KAL on Ravelry is lots of fun, too – all those […]
