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!

Yarn Pr0n, er, Thursday Wednesday

Yeah, I haven’t done any YPF posts in forever. I’m sure Cristi has booted me from the webring by now. 😀 But I’ve gotten a few new things that I wanted to show off.

First, if you are a Rockin’ Sock Club member and haven’t seen this yet, well, why the heck haven’t you opened […]

Sparkly Pr0n!

I picked this up at All About Yarn at their sale this past February.

Blue Heron Yarns Rayon Metallic in “Bluegrass”

I considered a Clapotis, but since the Tess Ribbon one languished for so long, I probably shouldn’t.

Now I just need to decide what I […]

Bears and Bugs

OK, not technically bears, and I left out the sheep. Plus, the pandas don’t actually do anything to the bamboo to make it yarn. But it was alliterative, and I can’t remember what pandas are officially. 🙂

Crystal Palace Panda Silk (52% bamboo, 43% merino, and 5% silk) in […]

Funky Red Pr0n

Not a creative title, but apt. 🙂

This bit of lovely is some Karabella Manipur silk in color 20177, a sort of coral-y-red.

It is, as you can see, a slightly funky texture, but I think it’s going to make a lovely tank or tee for summer.


Yaaaaaarrrrrn Pr0n

OK, ok, I hope you’ll forgive me the awful pirate pun.

I picked up this Malabrigo Worsted when Aija was destashing a while ago, because I couldn’t resist the idea of a Malabrigo sweater for Kris in “Tortuga”.

You know, the island from Pirates of the Caribbean? So, yeah, […]

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 […]

Could It Be?

Yes, it’s actual yarn pr0n!!!

Presenting Scarlet Fleece Painted Merino, purchased at The Celtic Knot on a trip up there with my buddies Carrie, Maryanne, and Carol this week.

It is already on its way to becoming has already become a pair of […]

I like this one!

I stole this one from Carmen. 😀

What’s the Recipe for Your Personality?

Thank you all for your thoughts and encouragement on the whole existential Yarn Pr0n crisis. 🙂 I promise the YPF […]

I am Iron Pr0n!

(Anyone else headbanging right now? Clearly, I’ve been spending too much time with Rock Band…)

OK, not ACTUALLY iron, but I picked this up at Rainy Day Creations with Aimee with a plan to make KelpKnit’s Ironwork socks (Aren’t they GORGEOUS?!). Opal sock yarn in a lovely heathery sagey green. 🙂

Also, I have […]

Pink? What the…

One thing you will notice if you peruse my stash, my wardrobe, pretty much my home in general is that you will not find much in the way of pink.

I blame my parents. Back in the early 1970’s, when they bought the house I grew up in, they painted my bedroom a shade […]
