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!

YPF – The Harry Potter Edition

Ok, so this post has absolutely nothing to actually do with Harry Potter, but it’s THAT day, so I figured I might as well call it that. 🙂 I’m posting this a little early, and then I am putting myself under a media embargo until after I finish the book. I don’t want to be […]

I’d Better Get This Up Fast

Or I’ll be in trouble with YPF BossLady. 😉 (Of course, she’s had enough trouble fighting with Lenny the Tech-Lack-of-Support Guy that she might not notice…)

I’ve got a lot to catch up on, but it’s been one of those weeks, so I’ll try to get to it this weekend. Until then, pr0n!

I ordered […]

Pre-yarn Pr0n

First, thank you all for your lovely comments on my Molly Sleeves. I’m kind of in love with them, so it’s nice to see that other people like them as well.

Now, on to the pr0n! This week, we have some pre-yarn. This is some spinning fiber I picked up at (all together now) Maryland […]

MDS&W Pr0n – Week 7

The last of the STR from Sheep and Wool – Mediumweight in Seastone

And yes, I am aware that three of the five colors I bought were blues and greens (Plus the green Footzey Foo heavyweight I used for my Red Dwarf Socks). It was slightly less obvious when I was also picking up […]

MDS&W Pr0n – Week 6

STR Heavyweight in Rose Quartz

MDS&W Pr0n – Week 5

And more STR from The Fold – Mediumweight in “Algae”

Thanks for all the, erm, kind words about my WIPs. And the beads for my Mystery Stole arrived today. Both colors are really pretty. Once the yarn gets here, I may have to ask for some input on which combination to use.


MDS&W Pr0n – Week 4

Firstly, thank you all for your good wishes and “ooh”ing at the winder and Zaphod. And Kris feels like a total rockstar hubby, as he should.

And now we reach the goodies from The Fold – the Socks That Rock. This week, STR Light Mediumweight in “Iolite” (Not sure why I thought Lighweight at first. […]

MDS&W Pr0n – Week 3

As we were in the barn with the shirts and bags and whatnot, we stopped by the Ernsts’ booth to drool at the glass knitting needles (So… pretty!!), and we found this:

Optim roving. It’s amazing stuff – it’s wool, but is treated so that it is almost as fine a fiber as cashmere.It’s so […]

MDS&W Pr0n – Week 2

So, while we were making a run back to the car with load #1 of stuff on Saturday of MDS&W, we paused at the Brooks Farm booth. Cristi was eyeing the sock yarns, Jas was schmoozing with a woman she was talking to about carrying her yarns, and as I was looking at the baskets, […]

MDS&W Pr0n – Week 1

So, I thought about posting the loot from MDS&W in the order it was purchased, but I decided instead to just post what I’m inspired to each week. 🙂

This week’s subject was purchased from Mohair in Motion, who were in one of the tents on the entrance end of the fairgrounds. We were walking […]
