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

Yeah, Yeah, Another Video. :)

I happened to catch a bit of an old “Charmed” rerun this morning, and this song was on it, which always makes me think of this.

While I was looking for it, I stumbled on another of his bits – I just wish it was the whole song!

He […]

I know – I’m Little Miss YouTube Lately.

But this is just awesome. My friend Carrie sent me the link to the Mental Floss article, and I just thought it was too cool not to share. (That link has the lyrics, BTW).

Aqua – Back to the 80s

Thanks to dbennett from the Knittyboard for sending me this totally awesome to the max link. 😀 Can’t imagine why he thought of me…

My New Hero

He made me cry. I want to hug him, or buy him a beer, I’m not sure which.

Most Random Van Ever

Posted by mobile phone: So, I was on the way to the theatre on Sunday before our closing performance (*sob*), and I saw the oddest vehicle ever. I had to get a picture of it. Now, of course, I want to know how you get inspired to start a business like this. Is it a […]

Overture, Curtain, Lights…

This is it, we’ll hit the heights.

And oh, what heights we’ll hit!

On with the show, this is it!

(Please tell me I’m not the only one who remembers the old Bugs Bunny theme…)

Anyway, I’ve been a bit absent lately, being so busy with the show. So, yes, we opened this past Friday […]

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 […]
