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!

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, […]


Clean water. Such a simple thing, right? And yet for so many people in the world, it’s something nearly unattainable. Charity: Water aims to do something about that, and Knit Witch wants knitters to help:

Here are some interesting facts for you:

– 1.1 billion people in the world have no access to clean water […]

If You’re Curious…

And don’t follow me on Twitter, I’ll mention it here, too.

I got the call last night – I was asked to play Nancy in “Play It Again Sam” at Laurel Mill Playhouse in October. 😀 She’s the ex-wife of the main character, and appears in flashbacks and fantasy scenes (No, Hugeness and Kiwanji, not […]

Oz Sock Club – Dorothy

Warning – spoilers ahead!

Shipment #2 from WoolGirl arrived at my door yesterday – this was the Dorothy-themed package.

Once again, lovely stuff! As expected, the pattern (Dorothy Gale Socks by Bethany Whitney – very pretty. Basketweave and cables.), some stickers, and this PILE of gorgeousness in the bag above:

It’s Olga’s Fault

And I’m sticking to that. After I stopped to see her on Friday, she told me that I really needed to check out the new shop Fibre Space, just a couple of blocks away. I had some time, so I decided what the hell. I walked over, and entered the door of a really lovely […]

I Fell Down

See, I’ve been pretty good lately. Haven’t been buying much yarn or fiber, because I really, really have been trying to work from the stash. And then Olga Tweeted on Wednesday that she needed a local to help her out with a design (She needed someone to work up a sample, so I can’t blog […]

It wasn’t me!

Posted by mobile phone: I know most of you will find that hard to believe, but it wasn’t me who edited this sign at my local grocery store.
