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!

Blue Light Special

Oh, come on. I made Brooklyntweed‘s “Red Light Special” hat in shades of blue and you expected something else? Kris chose the colors (it IS his hat, after all) – Knit Picks Telemark (which I loved using) in “Snow Leopard”, “Icicle”, “Colonial Blue” and “Skyline”, with a lining in KP Shine Sport in “Cloud”. I […]

Silk Pr0n!

In the last of our series of Stitches East Yarn Pr0n Fridays, today we feature silk.

A silk scarf kit from Fiberworks – to be drafted and knit as unspun silk. And Habu Textiles Tsumugi (or Tumugi, depending on where you look) Silk, in 14 and 53 (deep orange and tweedy purple, respectively) There are […]

Never let it be said…

…that I am not a follower. I am shamelessly stealing this from Turtlegirl. (and yes, I changed the text format from white to black so that it would show up. My husband is clearly rubbing off on me…)

**Clearly the stocking thingy hates me. So much for that plan. **

Speaking of gifts, my mailman […]

Droolworthy hat

Have you seen this new pattern? Isn’t it absolutely beautiful? Brooklyntweed’s knitting and photography are both always beautiful, and I am so thrilled that he posted this pattern.

I just ordered the yarn to make two of them – one for Kris in Skyline, Colonial Blue, Icicle, and Snow Leopard, and one for me in […]

A Cavalcade of Kureyon!

Today’s yarn pr0n comes to us from the folks over at Herrschner’s, and the faboo sale they had on Noro Kureyon about a month or so back. Not surprisingly, these are destined to become Lizard Ridge at some point. I am still waiting on them to ship one color that was backordered, and then I […]

It’s Almost Friday!

This is what happens when I go to my SnB and leave some yarn for my hubby to photograph while I’m gone.

KnitPicks Gloss in “Woodland Sage”, surrounded by “Dusk” Handpaintedyarns.com laceweight in “Dusty Olive”, hanks and wound (Thank you, klinska, for the awesome […]

Grey’s Anatomy KAL Project

OK, I finally remembered to scan in the picture of the sweater I am doing for the Grey’s Anatomy KAL. The Handyman sweater, from Knitter’s Fall 2005 issue. The dark brown part will be done in black, and the mustard-yellow part will be done in grey. Woo hoo – my husband, the fashion wild man. […]


In honor of Talk Like a Pirate Day, this picture that Kris took at the Ren Fair this weekend: How awesome is that? His name is Stefan Rosario – he’s the nicest guy, and he has a great gallery of pictures people have sent him here. We were chatting with him while looking at kilts […]

Monday Morning

First of all, how much do I love the Tony Awards? I was sad that my boyfriend (Hugh Jackman, and yes, he is MINE!) wasn’t there this year, having done such a great job hosting the last couple, but it was a great night, with some wonderful performances. Kris is totally enamored of the new […]

Whaddaya know?

There’s a BLOG here! I’ve been a neglectful blogger, I know. In my defense… um… yeah, I got nothing.

I have been working on the 2nd baby quilt and the last Baby Bolero, both of which need to be done before we leave for Pittsburgh this coming Thursday (Yay!! Kennywood!!!). I got the strips for […]
