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!

Shameless Plug!

But really, there is nothing to be ashamed about in plugging this.

The lovely Aimee of Fairie Knits (who I will be meeting at SAFF! Yay!) is doing the Walk to Cure Lupus, and she needs your help. Her goal is to raise $5000, and she’s about halfway there. So, if you can spare a […]

Reason #847…

…why Knittyfolk rock.

It wasn’t enough that I got a TON of birthday wishes via email, blog comments, and my very own threads at the Knittyboard and Ravelry, but I also got lovely thoughtful gifts.

I don’t have a picture of it, but Kiddossk sent me a little surprise from the Fat Witch Bakery (tell […]

To Distract You…

…from yet another week without WIP pictures (I’m almost done with the SP project, so normal pictures should resume next week), allow me to share with you the fabulousness that is my final Knittyboard SP9 package, which arrived today (OK, I picked it up today. My mailman tried to deliver it yesterday, but I wa […]

"I took one look at her boobs and thought ‘She’s not with us’"

AKA – Philly Knittyfest ’07. (I’ll explain that title in a bit.)

I was going to write a big long post about the weekend, and recap everything, but then I thought about it. It’s about as much fun to read a blog post like that as being forced to sit through your neighbor’s vacation slides. […]


In a shocking twist unforseen by the knitting world, a crime against fashion was perpetrated this weekend by superstar Amy R. Singer. She was photographed during an appearance at Loop wearing this… erm… ensemble.

Clearly, it started to affect Amy’s behavior after a few moments.

Here, it would appear it had taken over […]


OK, so, I’m finally going to catch up on Blogstalking (or more like pick up again. I’m so far behind, I’m not even going to get anywhere near caught up).

Here we have my cousin Beth (the clown) and me (the teddy bear) on our very first Halloween. I was 5 weeks old, and I […]

Just ’cause Turtle asked…

I swear, I’ve been bugging him to get me this picture – he finally did.Turtlegirl76, me, and Bryghtrose in Stitch DC Georgetown. And yes, I’m sticking my tongue out. I think I was laughing at something.

Also, the pic he took of Turtle’s brand-new Lantern Moon basket.And, just because we haven’t had any pictures in […]

Yorkie Day!

Yes, that’s right – you need to be jealous – I got to spend yesterday with the Siress herself, knittyboard’s own Yorkshire Gal. Which makes this the third week in a row I’ve spent hanging with a non-local Knittyhead, now that I think about it. Hee!

I picked her up yesterday and we headed over […]

I’m Growing Gills

I swear it – if it doesn’t stop raining around here soon, I’m going to sprout freaking gills. So far, we’ve been lucky and not had any actual damage (an advantage of not having a basement), but I’m just so very, very sick of rain and gray skies, and getting soaked every time I run […]
