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!

I Get It.

For years now, I’ve heard people raving about yoga and how good it makes you feel and how awesome it is. I have a few yoga dvds, and I thought, yeah, it was ok, but it wasn’t all that.

Tonight, I learned what they were talking about.

Monday night, Kris was bs’ing with Carrie on […]

Week 3 Update!

Wow – 3 weeks already? Time flies! (Which reminds me of one of my favorite bad jokes: Time flies like an arrow. Fruit flies like a banana. Yeah, I know. I have a bizarre sense of humor.)

I know some people suggested that I not do measurements every week, but I fully […]

Fitness-A-Long Update

I Heart Jason Segel

In fact, I’ve had a bit of a thing for him since back when he was on the late, lamented “Freaks and Geeks” as Nick Andopolis. He’s just adorable in a very real, teddybearish kind of way. And he’s just as awesome on “How I Met Your Mother“, which I also love.

If you are […]


So, I’ve been thinking about the comments you guys all left on Wednesday’s post. First of all, you have no idea how much those comments made the ache in my quads and abs a little less painful. Secondly, Betsy suggested something, and I think I like it. Who would be interested in a Fitness-A-Long? I’m […]
