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!

Yes, I Created a LOLDog

And I would be ashamed except that Meeko actually did this entirely on her own.

Well, not the captioning part, obviously.

Kris* was sitting there, putting away an XBox game, and Meeko sat there in front of him and put her paw up on the game like that. Kris and I started […]

Yes, More Sewing

And yes, it’s another wristlet.

But, there is something special about this one! This is the very first thing I have sewn on my birthday/Christmas present from my darling hubby:

My brand-new, picked-it-up-today Bernina Aurora 430. It is a thing of beauty, and I am completely in love. I’m […]

Gloves… and a Kitty!

So, the Some Like It Hot gloves are progressing nicely. Nothing left to do but 8-1/2 fingers. See:

OK, they look like utter crap like that. The ribbing pulls them in. So… a glove with a thumb and 1/2 of a forefinger, modeled:

I’m loving these, and I can’t […]

Just ’cause Turtle asked…

I swear, I’ve been bugging him to get me this picture – he finally did.Turtlegirl76, me, and Bryghtrose in Stitch DC Georgetown. And yes, I’m sticking my tongue out. I think I was laughing at something.

Also, the pic he took of Turtle’s brand-new Lantern Moon basket.And, just because we haven’t had any pictures in […]

Stuff and Nonsense

First of all, an apology to Joanna – I promised her pics of the finished (Yay!) Prosperous Plum tank yesterday. Unfortunately, I was taking care of a sick hubby all day and didn’t have a chance to take any.

He’s fine now – Kris and Jen and I went sailing with our friends Mary and […]

I’m still here!

I know, it’s been a while. It’s been a rough week or two, and I just haven’t felt much like posting. On April 11, Kris lost his dad to a sudden heart attack, so we spent several days in Pennsylvania dealing with that and helping his mom. We’re both still in shock a little bit […]

Two Words

Woo and hoo!

I had a discussion last night with hubby regarding the current length of his socks and the amount of yarn left. When he realized that I wasn’t actually kidding about then turning into knee socks, he told me to forget using up the yarn and just make them the same length as […]

More Christmas progress

So, I swatched the yarn for Nora’s purse on Monday afternoon:

I think it looks pretty cool. I swatched with one of the skeins that took less of the dye, figuring I’d use the more vibrant ones for the actual purse.

I started the actual purse itself Monday evening, and got a lot of it […]

Thanksgiving in Review

It was a busy and productive weekend here at the zoo. Mom and Dad arrived Wednesday evening in Dad’s car, which decided somewhere around Breezewood that heat was a luxury, and they didn’t really need it. Hyon and Drew and Clint came over to see them, since they haven’t seen him since he was about […]

Satchel is Done!

Yay! I finished the Satchel I made for Kris! I used Paton’s Classic Merino in Dark Grey Mix and Grey Mix (one strand of each held together) for the MC, and Black for the CC. Kris is very happy with it and took it to work today.


And open to show the pockets […]
