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.

It’s Olga’s Fault

And I’m sticking to that. After I stopped to see her on Friday, she told me that I really needed to check out the new shop Fibre Space, just a couple of blocks away. I had some time, so I decided what the hell. I walked over, and entered the door of a really lovely […]

I Fell Down

See, I’ve been pretty good lately. Haven’t been buying much yarn or fiber, because I really, really have been trying to work from the stash. And then Olga Tweeted on Wednesday that she needed a local to help her out with a design (She needed someone to work up a sample, so I can’t blog […]

Orange Pr0n!

Yes, I’m branching out in my color choices once again.

Cascade Baby Chunky Alpaca in a lovely heathery orange (officially, color #552, but that’s just boring), from The Celtic Knot. (Can you guess I’ve been spending some time there lately? I love them!!!)

My first thought was to do […]

Oh, Friday. Right.

Almost forgot to post. Cristi would have my head, especially since I missed WIP Wednesday this week.

Another acquisition from the fabbo Charlotte Yarns in October.

Malabrigo Laceweight (OMGLOVE!) in “Applewood” (posing with the Scotian Silk you saw last week).

Lovely light caramel, with just a hint of rosy pink here and there.

[…]

I Blame Cristi and Aimee

Yes, this is all their fault. See, Cristi took me to Charlotte Yarns while I was visiting her for SAFF. And Charlotte Yarns has beautiful stuff, like the Alpaca and Silk I showed you last week.

Also, like this. Fleece Artist Scotian Silk (64 wool-35 silk) in (I think) “Madder”. It’s gorgeous. It’s soft, and […]

Limbo Pr0n!

Why limbo? Because I’m sneaking in just under the wire, of course. 😀

Just one quick pic today – some Blue Sky Alpaca and Silk that I bought at the totally lovely Charlotte Yarn while visiting Cristi and Aimee and May and all the other kickass Charlotte knitters for SAFF. It’s going to be a […]

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 […]

Heartfelt Pr0n

So, one of the many joys of being at Rhinebeck this year was getting to meet so many people that I’ve only known online previously. There was a lot of “squee”ing and hugging and laughing. It was just awesome.

One of the lovely people I met was ZantiMissKnit, who I’ve known on the Knittyboards for […]

Buggy Pr0n

Ok, that sounds a little scary, but really, it’s not! I got an email from Little Knits a couple of weeks ago about some sales, and I was looking at the HandMaiden Sea Silk. I’ve looked at it before, and have resisted, but this time I just couldn’t. This color called to me. Aside from […]

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 […]
