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!

Massively Multipurpose Catch-Up Post

First of all, happy birthday to… me! That’s right – as of today, I am 34 years old. Maybe one of these days, I’ll even get around to growing up. (Oh, stop laughing. I didn’t say it was likely.)

Second – check out that Hats for Alex counter! Since Weezalana started her contest, I’ve gotten […]


OK, so, I’m finally going to catch up on Blogstalking (or more like pick up again. I’m so far behind, I’m not even going to get anywhere near caught up).

Here we have my cousin Beth (the clown) and me (the teddy bear) on our very first Halloween. I was 5 weeks old, and I […]

Blogstalking – Movies

OK, you’ve had the opportunity to mock my Science Fiction book collection, now you can mock my movie collection. Do you see how much I love my Knitty friends?

You’ve seen them in this form, courtesy of the Macro Shot Challenge:Now, you get to see what is INSIDE the boxes (Kassett boxes from IKEA, if […]

Blogstalking – Library!

So, I ran around the house taking pictures of our bookshelves, and although my first inclination was to post pictures of each individual shelf, I realized that it would be a LOT of pictures, so I cut back a little. As it is, this is going to be a long post. Click ’em if you […]

Blogstalking – Celebrities

OK – I’m going to post these today to try to get myself at least slightly more on-schedule for this, especially since I’m going to need a buttload of pics for my bookshelves…

Some of you may be aware that I went to a small college in Pennsylvania. Specifically, Westminster College (Go Titans!). It is […]

Blogstalking! And another recipe!

This week in blogstalking… tools. Clearly, I opted for knitting tools. I thought about shooting Kris’s woodworking tools, but they are big. And I could have done cooking tools, but I have WAY too many, and it would be embarassing to show that. =) So, knitting tools it is. In the front are my straight […]

I Blame the Knittyboards

For what, you ask? This: Seriously – if it weren’t for the Knittyboard, I would not have known that Smiley’s had discontinued Cotton-Ease for $1.99 a skein. OK, I guess I also have to blame Kris, because when I said something to him about a discontinued yarn that I like being available for about 60% […]

Contest Results!

But first, a small announcement. Since my “Jack Sparrow’s Favorite Socks” pattern got found (and apparently is kinda popular. Who knew?) I’ve gone way over my GeoCities bandwidth limit. Luckily, I am married to a wonderful man who already had some webspace set up, and now my patterns are there, just waiting to be discovered. […]

Blogstalking – Macro Guessing Game

This week in Knittyboard Blogstalking, we are supposed to post a macro shot of something in our home, and let people guess what it really is. Later in the week, we post the full shot of the item. I decided to let hubby loose with his camera for this one. He couldn’t decide on just […]

Blogstalking – Dinner preparation

So, since I was planning to make one of my favorite recipes anyway, I decided to make it my blogstalking post for the week. So, without further ado, Alton Brown’s Fried Chicken, a photo essay.

Two chickens, dismantled.A buttermilk bath.A coating of spices.A dredging of flour.A rest.A hot oil bath.Halfway to heaven.Golden brown and delicious.
