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!

Dancing with the Stars – Week 10

Well, folks, here we are!

Week 10 – FinalsJudges’ Choice Round:Laila & Maks – Paso Doble – I’m sort of surprised that the judges picked this for Laila and Maks, becuase I don’t think it plays to her strengths. The extension on her legs when she kicks isn’t great (her knees are usually bent […]

Dancing with the Stars – Week 9

But before we get to my ramblings about DWTS, we have socks!!

Recently, Cristi published her Red Dwarf Socks pattern. Since I had some fabbo STR Heavyweight from MDS&W, I knew the two were made for each other. I cast on last Monday night at my monthly SnB and finished them up (after two days […]

Dancing with the Stars – Week 8

I’m watching this on my faithful TiVo this morning through a haze of snot. I’ve gotten nailed by a nasty, nasty cold with an accompanying sore throat. I’m drinking lots of tea and plan on existing on pasta and chicken broth for the rest of the day.

Week 8 – Two Dances!

Ballroom Round:Ian & […]

Dancing with the Stars – Week 7

Ali – I understand what you said about Ian last week. I think the difference in the way we saw him was that you looked at it from a purely dance perspective, where I was looking at it more as a character choice – thinking more from my acting background. 🙂

Week 7 – Two […]

Dancing with the Stars – Week 6

First of all, I blame Turtlegirl for the fact that, instead of working on the SEVEN projects currently in my sidebar, I cast on today for “Tomato” from No Sheep for You. See, she was talking about working on her Textured Tunic, and that since it is now finished she was going to start Tomato. […]

Dancing with the Stars – Week 5

Well, I was half right last week. And at least the half was that Leeza was leaving. And I totally didn’t notice until they mentioned it that there are only two women celebrities left!

Week 5 – The Samba and the Rhumba

Ian & Cheryl – Ian is having WAY too much fun. The more […]

Dancing with the Stars – Week 4

And here we go for week 4! Is it really Monday night already?

And for the record, Len is a bitter, bitter man. He actually took the time to research how much time people were spending in training? He needs to get a hobby. Maybe he should learn to knit! 😀

Week 4 – […]

DWTS Elimination and Mid-Week Yarn Pr0n

Wow. I actually called it! Leeza and Shandi in the bottom two, and Shandi sent home! I’m so glad Clyde was safe. I know the judges are pretty hard on him, and I think a lot of his problems stem from the height difference and his rotator cuff issues. His personality is really starting to […]

Dancing with the Stars – Week 3

OK, here we are for week 3! I’m writing my impressions of each dance as soon as they are finished, and before the judges offer their critiques, so keep in mind that I could be completely full of it. After all, these are the impressions of a non-dancer. 😀

Week 3 – The Jive and […]

Dancing with the Stars – Weeks 1 and 2

Yes, that’s right – I’m hooked on Dancing with the Stars. Me, the queen of anti-reality tv, hooked on a reality show. I even mocked my Mom a little last year for voting for Emmitt Smith. I’ll take some ketchup with those words, please.

Anyway, just for shits & giggles, I thought I’d start blogging […]
