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!

We Have Cuffs!

I’ve got lots of yarn left, so now I just need to decide how long to make them. Still entirely in love with them, though!

And if you are wondering, those are my fabulous dragonfly sock blockers made by Cristi. I realized when I put the socks on them that I never […]

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 […]


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 […]

Giggle du Jour

So, CBear posted this link on the knittyboards, and I had to post the comic here. It’s yesterday’s “Rhymes with Orange” strip, and it’s TOO funny.

In other news, I finished up the mittens yesterday morning while we were waiting for Mindy to recover from Saturday night. I won’t go into detail, […]

Well, There’s a Shocker.

Glittrgirl posted this today, so I thought I’d check it out for myself.

Dragonflies on the back of the hand:

Flowers on the palm side, which will become stripes above the thumb (the white crochet thread is waste yarn for the thumb.

I’m using some Cherry Tree Hill Supersock […]


That’s right – I finished her up last night!

I even managed the grafting at the end of the tubular cast-off on the second try. That’s a fairly huge accomplishment for me.

It goes beautifully with my new shawl pin that I bought at Stitches this year.

Checking in

You know, it’s amazing what you can get done when you actually sit down and do it. During rehearsal Friday night, I bound off the front edge of the first half of Carmelo. After a weekend of trying to stay out of Kris’s way while he was working on NaNoWriMo (still going!), I am here:


Y’all Crack Me Up.

Seriously. Ok, first, thank you for the lovely compliments on the sweater – I adore it, and Kris is really thrilled with it. Bonus – he wore it all day yesterday, and so far, no pilling! Yay! And Yorkie, I must correct you a bit – I saw him first, my dear. But I’m sure […]

NaKniSweMo08 Complete!

NaNoWriMo08… still in process.

Explaining to Meeko that claws + sweater = repercussions for the owner of said claws.
