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.

WIP Wednesday and TdF Update

Yes, I have been spinning every day since I started the Tour de Fleece. I haven’t been taking pictures because, well, it doesn’t actually look all that different.

It’s really, really thin, and I know I’m going to ply it. I just haven’t decided if it’s going to be a 2- or […]

Bonjour, Mes Amis!

OK, yeah… it’s been way too long since I actually took French to attempt to write a full blog post, so I’ll stick with just the title.

And why, pray tell, am I titling my blog post in French? Because I’ve decided to enter the Tour de Fleece! I’m signing on as a rookie, because […]

Handspun Monday

Yes, that’s right – I’m actually POSTING handspun on a Monday. Clearly, this is one of the signs of the apocalypse, so brace yourselves accordingly.

I have the finished skein of the green handspun that I showed you last week.

I am completely in love with this stuff. It’s bordering on obsessive.

Handspun… erm… Tuesday

Yeah, so, I know it’s supposed to be Handspun Monday, and I could have showed this to you yesterday in its not-quite-finished state, but I was SO CLOSE that I decided just to wait. I finished the singles yesterday, plied it while on the phone with mom, and then decided that I did indeed want […]

Grab a Seat.

This is going to be a long one, I’m warning you. You might want to grab yourself a fresh cup of coffee or tea, and possibly take a potty break before starting.

OK, you ready? Really, go pee. I’m not kidding.

So, one of my goals on the cruise was to finally finish what I […]

Brooks Farm…. Squishy!!!

Brooks Farm Solana, purchased at Rhinebeck to make Cherie Amour.

And, as promised, the pictures of my SAFF acquisitions.

On Thursday before SAFF, Aimee (AKA the Evil Enabler) took me to The Yarn Shop by Rainy Day Creations. I picked up the Cascade 220 to make these cute cabled gloves that she’s making, and […]

I Know, I Know

It’s Thursday, and I promised handspun pictures for Monday. I didn’t end up getting Kris to take pictures this weekend, because we were busy setting up his new fishtank. He upgraded to a 75-gallon tank. Once it cycles and he gets some more fish in there, I’ll post pictures of that.

And I know, I […]

Pre-yarn Pr0n

First, thank you all for your lovely comments on my Molly Sleeves. I’m kind of in love with them, so it’s nice to see that other people like them as well.

Now, on to the pr0n! This week, we have some pre-yarn. This is some spinning fiber I picked up at (all together now) Maryland […]

Remember Zaphod?

To refresh your memory, when last we saw my lovely new Hitchhiker wheel Zaphod, he looked like this: And now? Well, after a Saturday afternoon with Carrie and her new Hitchhiker Ford, Zaphod looks like this: And yes, the back of the wheel says “Don’t Panic!” What else would you expect it to say? Be […]

Being Alive

So, to go along with the brand-new “WIP Wednesday” and the ongoing “Yarn Pr0n Friday”, Carrie has suggested that Mondays become “Handspun Monday”. So, here is my very first contribution:

This is some Jacob Humbug (which I think means the mixed colors, but please correct me if I am wrong) that I picked up from […]
