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!

I am Iron Pr0n!

(Anyone else headbanging right now? Clearly, I’ve been spending too much time with Rock Band…)

OK, not ACTUALLY iron, but I picked this up at Rainy Day Creations with Aimee with a plan to make KelpKnit’s Ironwork socks (Aren’t they GORGEOUS?!). Opal sock yarn in a lovely heathery sagey green. 🙂

Also, I have […]

Well, *I* think I’m funny…

Stole this one from Jo.

Flotsam of my Mind

Catnip is hilarious. I have three cats. We got them a new climby-scratchy-tree thing, and sprinkled a bit of catnip on it to entice them to check it out. Simba went all crackhead-hyper crazy, and Rajah was more of a pothead-mellow. Too funny. (Rowena goes back and forth. Mostly mellow with occasional bouts of hyper.)


I had no idea

… that so many of you would be so intrigued by my favorite tea! However, never let it be said that I will disappoint my public. (BWAHAHAHAHAHA… public. Right.)

Plus, with the way I feel right now, this is about the level of WIP I can handle today.

So, Korean Honey Citron Tea. First, some […]

Thank God…

…for Koreans. And particularly for my dear friend Hyon.

Why? This stuff – Honey-Citron Tea. (OK, for lots more reasons, particularly in reference to Hyon, but at the moment, it’s tops on the list.)

First, it’s yummy as all get out. Second, when you feel like ass, it’s awesome on a sore throat. Plus, […]

Another Week, Another Adventure

Although this time, it’s not us.

Oh – and my personal photographer was under the weather this weekend, so no pics of Spanish Dancer just yet. Hopefully today.

Anyway… I’m sitting here last night a little after 11, poking around on the Ravelry forums and the Knittyboards, when my phone rings. My first thought was […]

Don’t Panic

Kris and I are messing with my sidebars right now, so things might look a little screwy. We’ll be all fixed up soon.


ETA: All fixed! Now I have progress bars for my Hibernating projects that match the WIP ones Casey made. Yay! My anal-retentive need for things to match has been satisfied!

And For THIS Week’s Adventure…

You may or may not know this, but Kris and I are kind of Ikea-holics. Seriously – it’s bordering on ridiculous just how much of our furniture has come from the House of Swedish Design. Anyway, a while back, we bought a bed from them, including one of their foam mattresses. We liked it a […]

Well, THAT was fun.

So, some of you may know that Kris has to be at work at 6am. This generally means that I wake up enough to say goodbye to him around a quarter to 6 (yay short commute!), and then go back to sleep until my alarm goes off at 7. This morning, however, things were a […]


Welcome to my new home – katydidknits.com. Hubby bought the domain for me quite some time ago, just because he’s a sweetie, but it has taken me until now to get it up and running because, erm, I’m lame.

Anyway, I’m still tweaking and playing with stuff, so if you hit at a moment when […]
