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!

Go wish Cristi a Happy Birthday!

And then, click on this and make yourself completely crazy. (Blame Steve. He sent me the link. Evil bastard.)

Still progressing on the Ravelympics project. Should have a real update tomorrow later today.

And for the latest entry in the “WTF Files”

So, you may remember a while back, when it rained so hard that a frog was stuck on my kitchen window? Welcome to the latest random wildlife sighting in my world.

Tonight is trash night, so I went out the side door to grab the can and drag it to the curb. Before I stepped […]

Joss Whedon is a Genius

Have you seen this yet? It’s absolutely hilarious. Act 2 is up today, and Act 3 goes up on Saturday. I just hope I’ve got an internet connection and can watch it.

Why might I not have a connection, you ask? Because this weekend is EDFEST! That’s right, folks, it’s time once again for that […]

WIP Wednesday

First of all, thank you ALL for your sweet thoughts on yesterday’s blog post. It’s not something I want to get into publically right now, but those who know me well have pretty much figured out what I was talking about. It’s not anything terrible – no divorce pending or anything like that. Kris and […]


Have you ever wanted something so badly for so long that when life finally reaches a point that you have the opportunity to pursue it, you aren’t entirely sure if you really want it, or if wanting it has just become habit at this point? And it’s something that is going to take a lot […]

Annie Modesitt is FABulous

Also, slightly insane.

I’ve never met anyone so genuine and funny and sweet and brilliant. The class was completely awesome, and I’ve started work on my own Cocoon Twisted Float Shrug, which was the second half of the class. The first half was learning combination knitting, which I LOVE. There’s a good […]

Eddie Izzard F’ing Rocks.

Just got home from seeing his “Stripped” tour here in DC, and I seriously haven’t laughed that hard in so long. I am so glad Carrie introduced me to him.

If you have the chance to see it, GO.

I believe I will be wearing my new “Cake or Death” t-shirt tomorrow. 🙂

I Have no WIPs to Show.

Not that I’m not working on anything, but the Ribbon Clapotis looks pretty much exactly the same (although it is a smidgen longer), and I am not allowed to show the test crochet project. I’m going to try to finish up the Clapotis on Friday night when my girls get here. (I’m just about to […]

Wow. Y’all Are Curious.

(And I know someone is going to call me out for using “y’all”…)

Anyway, those “metal things” on my porch aren’t actually metal. They are PVC pipe, painted silver. What are they? A game! Specifically, a game that a friend of ours invented called, erm, Testicle Toss.

Basically, you’ve got two of […]

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.
