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!

Orange You Glad I Didn’t Say Banana?

You guys remember that awful old knock knock joke, right? Sorry to bring up an old groaner, but you’ll understand momentarily what made me think of it. 🙂

Anyway, I thought I’d show you the goodies I picked up at the fibre tasting at fibre space on Friday. I went with a plan in mind […]

This’ll Take More Than Four Days

So, I’ll actually give you a WIP shot of this one. 😀

I started (finally) Tempest last week, after having the yarn in my stash for a year and a half. I bought it at Maryland Sheep and Wool in 2008, right after the pattern was released. I even wound it and took it with […]

Finishing Fool, Part 2

After knitting Ishbel, I’ve discovered a great fondness for Ysolda Teague‘s designs, so I started poking around and saw that her second set of “Whimsical Little Knits” patterns was being made available. I decided to buy the set, so each week I get an email that one is ready for download.

When I got the […]

Finishing Fool

Yup, that’s me. I’ve got two more FO’s to show off, each of which took about 4 days to do.

Today, it’s my Milkweed Shawl. I’ve been seeing this all over the place, and I just loved the combination of the garter stitch and simple lace, so I knew it would be mine. The pattern […]

If It’s Fall, It Must Be Soup

Fall is totally soup weather in my mind. I love it. Hubby, however, is less of a fan. Unless, of course, it’s something like this – Lasagna Soup, originally shared by Cristi, and a permanent part of our rotation since.

First, brown 1 pound of Italian sausage. I used hot sausage tonight, but if you […]

Coming Clean

So, JP posted his list the other day, and challenged me to do the same. Fall tv season is upon us, so I share with you my planned tv watching for this season. Generally, I don’t watch shows the night they actually air, because I’ve got rehearsals and stuff (and if I don’t, Kris does), […]

Taking Flight

That’s right – my Icarus shawl is done!

Pre-blocking, laid out on the kitchen table. Already big.

Taking a little bath. Sadly, this will be the last time I soak anything in this salad spinner. I’ve been using it for 4 years to soak my knits and handspun, and it developed a […]

Finding Balance

No, not me. Pretty sure that’s beyond hope. 😀

The background: When we had the patio done last summer, they did exactly what they were supposed to do – they graded it so that rain wouldn’t pool against the house. It drops about 4″ across the 12′ width of the patio.

This isn’t a problem, […]
