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!

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 […]


Specifically, “Oregon Red Clover Honey” – STR Lightweight, purchased at Stitches East to make Spanish Dancer. I cast on at SAFF this past weekend (and yes, you’ll get the full recap soon – I’m finally feeling human-ish again.), although it doesn’t look like much yet. That’s right – 401 stitches, provisionally cast-on. And that’s not […]

Yarn Poison Friday

Sitting here on Turtlegirl‘s couch, posting pre-SAFF. Yay!

This is Storm Moon Knits’ Twilight Sock in “Mandragora” that I picked up from her at Stitches East. It’s gorgeous stuff.


YPF – Boogie Down

Well, what else should I call it? It’s “Disco Lights”, after all!

The Tilli Tomas Disco Lights in “Ruby Wine” for the Twilight Capelet. It’s a lovely deep red, slightly variegated (more like a kettle-dyed than a true variegated)

Happy Friday, and if you’re at Rhinebeck, look for me! Come say hi! I look […]

Yarn Pr0n and Not-Yarn Pr0n

So the folks arrived safely last night, and we met Amanda (her J was golfing), JMac and Mary Beth at DuClaw for the Twisted Kilt release. I’m pretty sure that by the end of the evening, all three of them were thinking, “Oh! THAT’s where she gets it from.” 😀

After dinner, Kris and Dad […]

YPF – Williamsburg, Week Two

Today, we have some lovely Claudia Handpaints Linen in “Blue Fields”

Isn’t it gorgeous? I just picked up a copy of Folk Style today, and I’m thinking that the lovely green shawl in there (Kate Gilbert’s “Paisley Shawl”) might be the destiny of this yarn.Oh, and regarding the blog post title from the last […]

Yarn Pr0n Friday – Williamsburg Edition, Week One

So, last Wednesday (the 15th) Carrie, Maryanne, Carol and I piled into the car and had ourselves a little road trip down to Williamsburg, VA. You can see Carrie’s recap of the trip here – I’ll sum it up this way: We started laughing when we left the house at 8:30 in the morning, and […]

YPF – Visiting Knitty Edition

Last Wednesday (the 8th, not the 15th), I got to add another name to the list of nifty Knittyheads that I’ve met in person. The lovely jpknits was in town with family, and sent me a message on Tuesday that she had a little time before her flight on Wednesday, and would I like to […]

Birthday Pr0n

No, not my birthday – Cristi’s! So, first things first:

*clears throat*

*sings loudly*

Happy Birthday to you! Happy Birthday to you! Happy Birthday, dear Cristiiiiiiiiiiiii! Happy Birthday to you!


And now, some pr0n. This was sent to me by the lovely Penny_Karma in a swap, along with some other goodies (Rubber duckie notecards, […]

YPF – Drama and Dragons

AGES ago (like, pre-MDS&W) Artsygal had a shop update that included a color I needed. No, truly needed. HAD to have. And really, it was all about the name. (I’m a sucker for a great color name. That name? “Drama Queen” Need I say more? 😀

And thank you all for your […]
