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!

Knitting Blogs & Sites

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 […]

WIP Wednesday, Mystery Stole Edition

So, Norberta #1 hasn’t made any actual progress since I posted the pics this weekend, but I did finish up Clue #3 on the Mystery Stole. Here’s how it looks as of now:

Yes, that’s right – for you, my dear readers, I even broke out the blocking wires. (OK, and I really, really […]

Overdue Thank-yous

So, I’m a bit behind on posting these. The fabulous Ali organized a Knitty Valentines Day swap (which of course degenerated into lots of jokes about giving people VD…), and my package from the lovely thistlerain arrived on the best day possible – Feb. 15th, while we were dealing with no power, no internet, moving […]

Fleece Artist Pr0n!

Fleece Artist Merino Sock yarn in “Paris”. Purchased from my fave online yarn store, Little Knits. This will be socks for me. (I also got another color that will be socks for Kris, but that’s for next week)

And for Jenneke, the current state of her Swap Socks: We’ve passed the […]

Sock Swap!

Hi Jenneke!

Thought I’d post a progress pic of your socks, so you can see that I really am working on them. 😀

Two toes, happily hanging out on the needles: Obligatory pr0nny shot of the stitch pattern: It’s a fun pattern* to work. I’m enjoying it, and I’ve got it pretty much memorized (I […]

I should say something profound…

… since I’m now a blogger with 200+ posts, but, yeah. Profound is not so much “me”. Silly, yes. Full of ridiculously bad jokes, absolutely. But profound, nah.

Aaaaaaanyway. I’m participating in the Sock Swap over on the Knittyboards, and the yarn I ordered for my swap pal Jenneke arrived yesterday. One of the advantages […]

I am so glad…

… that so many of you are amused by my father. I told you he was nuts. 😀 And yes, I’ve been working on the hat, but no, there will not be pictures until he gets it. I want him to be surprised.

In other news, I promised pictures of the RAK that Ali sent […]

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 […]

Cheapie Cheep Strikes Again!

Dear Cheapie Cheep,

I am not worthy. You are the most amazing SP. You have sent me such thoughtful, creative gifts, and this one just blew me away.



Seriously, folks. Check out the loot! Per the postcard, this is a “bath relaxation” themed package. All sorts of bath goodies, including a Lush […]
