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.

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 […]

Baaaaaa

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. […]

Yarrrrrrrr!

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 […]
