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


So, this weekend was the final Stitches East in Baltimore (it moves to Hartford next year, I believe), and therefore probably my last year to attend. There weren’t any classes that really grabbed me this year, so I just went up for the Market. I got up bright and early on Friday, and met Carrie […]

Warm and Cozy Pron

This week, we have Knit Picks Sock Sampler in Warm Colors. I ordered this (along with the Neutrals) with plans to make myself a sweater using some techniques I learned in my “Stashology 201” class with Christine Bylsma at Stitches East this fall. (GREAT class. Awesome teacher. If you ever have the chance to take […]

More Local Pr0n!

The rest of the goodies I picked up from Neighborhood Fiber Co.

Victorian Bulky in “Mt. Pleasant” and Loft in “Mt. Pleasant”. These will be combined into a scribble lace scarf, courtesy of the free pattern in Karida’s booth.


Local Pr0n!

I met the lovely Karida of Neighborhood Fiber Co. at Stitches this year (seriously – she’s adorable, and a total hoot). I picked up a few things from her (you’ll see some of it next week, too)

Studio Sock yarn for Kris in “Foggy Bottom” Seriously – tell me these aren’t Penn State colors. How […]

Stitches + Rhinebeck =

Ellen’s Half Pint Farm! I picked up two hanks of this lovely purple alpaca-silk lace yarn at Stitches. When I got home, I checked the Icarus Shawl pattern (which I thought it would be perfect for) and realized… I didn’t have enough. Luckily, when I stopped by the Ellen’s booth at Rhinebeck, she had another […]

Yarn Pr0n Good… Stormy

(Does anyone even vaguely recognize that rather tweaked quote?)

While at Stitches, I had the pleasure of meeting Lindsay of Storm Moon Knits (her shop’s not fully up just yet). She’s absolutely darling, and her yarns? GORGEOUS. I was drooling over one called “Let There Be Lips” (Yay Rocky Horror) but missed out on it. […]

Deep Inhale…

… *whoooooooooo* There. That should get the dust off this puppy.

As it was so subtly pointed out to me by someone on Googlechat last night, it’s been two weeks since my last blog entry. I didn’t plan for it to go that long, but sometimes life has other plans, you know?

So, since we […]

Naked Pr0n!

Oh, that’s going to get me in trouble…

Today, Yarn Barn of Kansas Moriah – undyed laceweight wool


Post-Turkey Pr0n

While everyone recovers from yesterday’s food-fest, we here at Katydid Knits (when did I become a “we”?) are featuring soft, soothing alpaca pr0n this week. Specifically, two different colors of undyed alpaca from Stitches East.

First, a color the Yarn Barn of Kansas refers to as “Musk”. This is going to be a soft, snuggly […]

Blue Moooooooooon…

…You saw me standing aloooooooooneWithout a dream in my heart,Without a love of my oooooooown.

I’m sorry, I know that’s going to be stuck in everyone’s heads now, but I couldn’t resist. After all, the theme of this week’s Yarn Pr0n Friday here is, of course, Blue Moon Fiber Arts!

First, we have Seduction (Merino/Tencel […]
