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!

New Anti-Spam, Again

Ok, so I’m trying this anti-spam thing again. We’ll see how this goes. Please, if you try to comment and it tells you that you are a spambot, let me know so I can see if I can tweak it. 🙂

ETA: Crap. This one is blocking people too. I was hoping to avoid doing […]

Found Theme


Should be finalized soon.


ETA: Whee! I love my new theme! If anyone is wondering, it’s called “Atahualpa”, it’s uber-simple to customize colors and stuff, and it’s widget-friendly. Also, hubby found it first, and I completely stole it from him. 😀 One of the things I like about it is that I can […]

Design Update

I think I’m kind of bored with the grey-and-green thing around here, so I found an alternate theme to make things a little brighter. Hopefully I’ll manage to do that without breaking anything, but if things look odd for a bit, bear with me. 🙂 I’m working on it, I promise.

OK, I don’t have […]


I’m sick of having to go through spambot comments to make sure that real ones don’t get deleted (and I have caught a few that were mis-filed by Akismet), so I’ve added a new plugin that I’m hoping will help with it. It does use Javascript and cookies, so if you leave a comment and […]

Thank you, Turtlegirl

Thank you very much, Turtlegirl, for figuring out that I was missing a /div tag in my sidebar. THAT is what was fouling up my formatting. And yes, this is the second time I’ve managed to do that. *sigh*

No pictures today – I’m saving it for tomorrow’s YARN PR0N FRIDAY! I know what I’m […]

Woo Hoo!

So, after an evening of playing World of Warcraft, Kris remembered that he was supposed to be helping me figure out why my freaking blog was misbehaving. He finally (after a couple of hours of fighting with it) figured out that Blogger is putting a tag at the beginning of my posts which causes things […]

Playing Catch-Up

Let’s see… I know I owe Kennywood pictures, so for those of you who are interested, Kris has a flickr set here. It’s not all of them just yet, but he’s going to put the rest of them up soon.

Also – current knitting progress. I have put my One Skein Tank in time out […]

A New Look!

So, what do you think? My darling hubby did some redesigning here at Katydid Knits, and put together the lovely header image up above. I’m probably going to do some more playing with the minor details, but I think the logo is a definite keeper!

And he even made me a button!

Go on, […]

One Quick Thing

Hey – If anyone reading this links to me here and is not already in my list of links over in the sidebar, let me know so I can add you, ok? I know there is probably a way for me to go looking for that, but I am just not that web-savvy.

Progess bars

Based on Kathy’s comment on my last post (hi Kathy!), I thought I would put this info out there for anyone who wants it.

I found the progress bars courtesy of the Knitty Coffeeshop (I can no longer find the original post, of course). I got mine from Unlikely Words, which has a great explanation […]
