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!

My Friends Crack Me Up

This happens on a regular basis, true, but in this case I’m referring to one particular instance involving one particular friend.

Backstory: Around Easter, penny_karma had been grumbling about her inability to locate Cadbury Mini Eggs. I happened to be in my local Target right after Easter, and found a crap-ton of them on uber-clearance. […]

Ravelympics Update 4

And some other random stuff. 🙂

So current status of the shawl is…

52 of 82 motifs complete. Progress has slowed a bit, obviously. I’m thinking I might take a break from it and start the skirt, just to break the monotony. Plus, carrying around 4 different colors of yarn and changing […]

Kick-Ass Mail Day

Did you happen to see Cristi’s post today? Well, Betsy was a busy little bee, because Cristi wasn’t the only one who got a special package in the mail from Adam this weekend.

Betsy conspired with Adam to have him create an Oz-themed colorway, just for me! It’s called “No Place […]

Woo Hoo Wednesday

Not just WIP Wednesday because…

Something Pink is done! But, I’m a big tease, because you don’t get pictures yet. It’s coming with me to Vegas, and I’ll have pictures of it and whatever new hair Tom does for me on Friday. 😀

Instead, check out the fastest baby sweater EVER.


Yes, Another Silly Quiz

Spotted this one at Bonne Marie Burns’ blog.

Who is Your Ideal TV Boyfriend? Created by BuddyTV

I’ve quit watching The Office, because it got just too painful for me. I used to work in the office of a warehouse, and the guy who ran it was WAY too similar to the Michael Scott […]

A WIP for a Friend

For those of you who know Yorkie from the Knittyboards, you know the difficult time she has been through in the last few weeks. I’m not going into the details here, because I don’t think it’s my place. Suffice it to say that I don’t know how she’s doing it.

Yorkie was one of the […]

See? I told you Tom kicks ass!

And for further proof, the jacket he did for Kris: Back view: Sleeve one: Sleeve two: Tom was going for a manly version of the traditional comedy and tragedy masks, and I think he did a damn good job, as does Kris. He’s THRILLED with it.


My Brother Kicks Ass.

You may remember my mentioning my younger brother Tom here before. He’s the one who gave me the kickass haircut and color when we went to Las Vegas (where he lives) in ’06, and the recipient of my first “We Call Them Pirates” hat last Christmas. Tom and I weren’t all that close when we […]

Wayback Machine…

So, do you remember back in July, when I was madly knitting on those three dragons for our friends’ little boy? Well, I did deliver them in July, but didn’t get a picture. And Karin’s camera was broken, so she couldn’t get them. I got an email from her last night, including pictures of the […]

WIP Wednesday – Here Be Dragons

Well, almost-dragons, anyway.

The Emerald is all assembled and just waiting for his eyes to be embroidered. I’m pretty happy with him. The Sapphire pieces are to the right left, and the Amethyst are to the left right (Sorry – was thinking from the POV of the Emerald dragon…). I am hoping to get […]
