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!

It Was a Good Weekend.

Truthfully, a VERY good weekend. I’m not good with the recapping, so I’ll probably leave that to Cristi or Amanda or Val.

The haul:

Top – an awesome sign that Betsy spotted today. I’m still debating whether it will go in the Oz-themed guest room or the kitchen (with my “Don’t make […]

And So It Begins

Guess who got nailed for speeding on the way up here…

Penny Karma – we HAD to take a picture of this for you, my dear.

The Maryland Sheep and Wool Friday Night Band:

Vaguely demonic-looking J on guitar, Kris on drums, Val on bass, and […]

Do You See This?

All I know is, it better be freaking GONE by Saturday.

I feel like I need an ark today.

Oh, and the red Jeep? Yeah – that’s Serenity. As in, she of the leaking windshield. Sitting out in the rain. Again. Eesh.


MDS&W Pr0n – Week 7

The last of the STR from Sheep and Wool – Mediumweight in Seastone

And yes, I am aware that three of the five colors I bought were blues and greens (Plus the green Footzey Foo heavyweight I used for my Red Dwarf Socks). It was slightly less obvious when I was also picking up […]

MDS&W Pr0n – Week 6

STR Heavyweight in Rose Quartz

MDS&W Pr0n – Week 5

And more STR from The Fold – Mediumweight in “Algae”

Thanks for all the, erm, kind words about my WIPs. And the beads for my Mystery Stole arrived today. Both colors are really pretty. Once the yarn gets here, I may have to ask for some input on which combination to use.


MDS&W Pr0n – Week 4

Firstly, thank you all for your good wishes and “ooh”ing at the winder and Zaphod. And Kris feels like a total rockstar hubby, as he should.

And now we reach the goodies from The Fold – the Socks That Rock. This week, STR Light Mediumweight in “Iolite” (Not sure why I thought Lighweight at first. […]

MDS&W Pr0n – Week 3

As we were in the barn with the shirts and bags and whatnot, we stopped by the Ernsts’ booth to drool at the glass knitting needles (So… pretty!!), and we found this:

Optim roving. It’s amazing stuff – it’s wool, but is treated so that it is almost as fine a fiber as cashmere.It’s so […]

MDS&W Pr0n – Week 2

So, while we were making a run back to the car with load #1 of stuff on Saturday of MDS&W, we paused at the Brooks Farm booth. Cristi was eyeing the sock yarns, Jas was schmoozing with a woman she was talking to about carrying her yarns, and as I was looking at the baskets, […]


It was a wild and wooly (Hee!) weekend here, thanks to Turtlegirl‘s arrival on Thursday afternoon and Artsygal‘s on Friday night for the Maryland Sheep and Wool Festival.

We had a complete blast all weekend, starting with a Friday morning trip to Cristi’s fave spot to visit when she comes up – Ikea! I’m sure […]
