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!

Leyburn Update

I’m up to the heel on my STR Leyburn Socks, and I’m completely in love with them.

The color isn’t very accurate in that shot, because I took it indoors at night, but you can see the pattern. It’s awesome. The KAL on Ravelry is lots of fun, too – all those […]

Finish or Frog It

Just saw this post over on Insaknitty’s blog, and I’m joining in. I think it’s a brilliant idea.

To quote:

2009 is going to be the Year of Decisions. Iā€™m tired of my WIP pile getting out of control. I often lose interest in a project or fall out of love with […]


Yup. I’m a sheep. Why this time? Well, I got a message on Ravelry that someone had linked to my profile in a post. Specifically, Cristi linked to me to ask me if I wanted to join in on the Leyburn Socks KAL in the Socks That Rawk! group. Basically, they are taking this lovely […]

Grey’s Anatomy KAL Project

OK, I finally remembered to scan in the picture of the sweater I am doing for the Grey’s Anatomy KAL. The Handyman sweater, from Knitter’s Fall 2005 issue. The dark brown part will be done in black, and the mustard-yellow part will be done in grey. Woo hoo – my husband, the fashion wild man. […]


In honor of Talk Like a Pirate Day, this picture that Kris took at the Ren Fair this weekend: How awesome is that? His name is Stefan Rosario – he’s the nicest guy, and he has a great gallery of pictures people have sent him here. We were chatting with him while looking at kilts […]

Since my public beckons…

Hee… yeah, because I have a public. =) Seriously, you guys crack me up.

Anyway, nothing much going on here (No, Cristi, seriously), but I do have a couple of pictures to show.

First – I joined the Monthly Dishcloth KAL, and the mid-month one for August was the first pattern I did. (I skipped […]
