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!

Spread the Word

In honor of a very sweet little boy who made me more conscious of my own use of words like “retarded” and phrases like “riding the short bus” (and therefore eliminate them), I want to spread the word about this.

From the Special Olympics site:

Spread The Word to End The Word It is time […]


So, I finished up most of the border of the Swallowtail Shawl at the first Book Club meeting at Large Marge’s on Friday evening, and then did the bindoff yesterday. Today?

She soaks…

And then she dries!

It ended up about 52″ across the top and 28″ down the […]

Meet My Nemesis.

This lovely piece of machinery was about the death of me today. See, when I started this whole getting fitter thing, my very dear college friend (and APhiO big sister) invited me to come for a ride with her. That was the plan for today. 4 miles to pick up her daughter, and 4 miles […]


Sunday afternoon, I headed up to Savage Mill for the 2nd annual Homespun Yarn Party. It was awesome – like a mini-Stitches, but all the vendors are people who make their stuff – spin it, dye it, sew it, raise the animals, etc. It was great fun, and I met some very cool people, including […]

Once Again, I’m a Sheep

So, after hearing everyone else talk about it, and seeing it all over Facebook, I’ve succumbed.

That’s right – I’m now on Twitter. You can click over


Sorry for any phantom posts tonight – Kris and I have been fighting to get blogging via email from the BlackBerry working, which led to a couple of test posts that didn’t quite work, so I deleted them.

So, if you saw the “Nothing to see here, move along” message, that’s what it was. 🙂

Nooooo Shoooooooooz!

These are the awesome new running shoes I picked up at New Balance yesterday. They are way comfy, and they have great arch support.

I’m hoping that I’ll be back on the treadmill come Monday!

Three Steps Forward, Two (Painful) Steps Back

So, I spent my afternoon in the emergency room, you?

It started yesterday while I was working out like a good girl. My left foot was bothering me. I figured I had just done something, and it would work itself out.

I woke up this morning, and it was ok. By the time I was […]

Spring is Sprung!

And, no, I do not know this because this weekend was the freaking Daylight Saving Time change (which I haaaaaaaaaate). I know this because yesterday, I did my traditional “Welcome Spring” ritual.

Most people welcome spring by doing things like gardening, or cleaning off the porch, or checking the status of the lawnmower. Me, I […]

Boring Personal Diet and Fitness-y Stuff

If you have no interest in my weight issues, click on by. There’s no knitting here today, and I won’t be insulted. Might try to post some WIP shots this weekend, though. 🙂

So, remember the Fitness-a-Long thing I was doing last spring? Yeah… neither do any of us who were in on it. We […]
