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!

This’ll Take More Than Four Days

So, I’ll actually give you a WIP shot of this one. 😀

I started (finally) Tempest last week, after having the yarn in my stash for a year and a half. I bought it at Maryland Sheep and Wool in 2008, right after the pattern was released. I even wound it and took it with […]


Apparently, I’ve decided to work my way through the shawl patterns that start with “I”. First Ishbel, now this. What’s next? 😀

I cast on this morning, and it’s moving quickly. I’ve decided to make it larger than the pattern calls for, because I’ve got lots of the yarn. We’ll see if […]

Fabbo Mac & Cheese

OK, so, I posted something about this on Facebook last night after I made it for dinner last night. It’s a slight tweaking of one I got in my America’s Test Kitchen cookbook (Um. The 2007 one, I believe). It’s REALLY good, very simple (One pot! Yay!), and so cheesy you’d never guess it was […]

So Much For Finish or Frog…

Remember that? The group I joined to try to finish up some of my languishing WIPs? Yeah… since then, I started and finished three new projects (my green cowl, and the hats I made for my brother’s two friends). So, the WIP pile… has not really moved. But, that has changed!

I finally dug out […]

We Have Cuffs!

I’ve got lots of yarn left, so now I just need to decide how long to make them. Still entirely in love with them, though!

And if you are wondering, those are my fabulous dragonfly sock blockers made by Cristi. I realized when I put the socks on them that I never […]

Leyburn Update

I’m up to the heel on my STR Leyburn Socks, and I’m completely in love with them.

The color isn’t very accurate in that shot, because I took it indoors at night, but you can see the pattern. It’s awesome. The KAL on Ravelry is lots of fun, too – all those […]


Yup. I’m a sheep. Why this time? Well, I got a message on Ravelry that someone had linked to my profile in a post. Specifically, Cristi linked to me to ask me if I wanted to join in on the Leyburn Socks KAL in the Socks That Rawk! group. Basically, they are taking this lovely […]

Giggle du Jour

So, CBear posted this link on the knittyboards, and I had to post the comic here. It’s yesterday’s “Rhymes with Orange” strip, and it’s TOO funny.

In other news, I finished up the mittens yesterday morning while we were waiting for Mindy to recover from Saturday night. I won’t go into detail, […]

Well, There’s a Shocker.

Glittrgirl posted this today, so I thought I’d check it out for myself.

Your rainbow is shaded green.


What is says about you: You are an intelligent person. You feel strong ties to nature and your mood changes with its cycles. Those around you admire your fresh outlook […]


OK, technically, mitten. Ok, technically only HALF a mitten. But look how cute!

Dragonflies on the back of the hand:

Flowers on the palm side, which will become stripes above the thumb (the white crochet thread is waste yarn for the thumb.

I’m using some Cherry Tree Hill Supersock […]
