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!

Green Pr0n

Thank you for the good wishes on overcoming my cold. It’s definitely improving. Maybe tonight I’ll be able to sleep without being propped up to prevent coughing. I definitely have my appetite back, too.

This is the last of the pre-MDS&W pr0n I have stockpiled, so you’ll have to wait until next week to start […]

Future Lady E

Ah, Silk Garden, how do I love thee…

Color #243, which will be a Lady Eleanor shawl.

And I did finish Tomato yesterday. I’m quite happy with it, including the minor tweaks I made to the pattern. FO pics a bit later, since I’m wearing it to MDS&W. Yes, Cristi and I decided to be […]

Claudia Handpaints Pr0n

Here are the two colors of Claudia Handpaints sock yarn that I am using for my Chevron Scarf.

Eat Your Veggies (Best. Color name. Ever.):

Caribbean Blue:

Happy Friday! (And yeah, I owe FO pics. I’m hoping to take them this weekend, finally. It’s been an odd week around here.)

ETA: For Zonda: […]

Cheap Pr0n

OK, not really cheap, per se, but at least on sale. I scored these at the Knit Happens sale a couple of weeks ago.

Alchemy Silk Purse in Rust Red and Synchronicity in Foxglove:

I have a FO or two to show you, but I need my photographer for that, and he’s stuck at work […]

Twinkle Pr0n!

The loveliness that I picked up at the Twinkle Party with Annemarie 2 weeks ago. 🙂

Twinkle Handknits Soft Chunky in “Haze” (Probably will be the Princess Capelet from Big City Knits.)

And Twinkle Handknits Kid Mohair in “Dusty Rose” (Will be the Mohair Shrug from Big City Knits)Speaking of Annemarie, I saw her today […]

April Fool Pr0n

OK, not really April Fool, since it’s the sixth, but I’m running low on clever titles. 🙂

Bamboo, courtesy of the kickass sale at Discontinued Brand Name Yarns. It was one of those “We can’t tell you what it actually is, but you usually pay a lot more” deals. SWTC Bamboo is one of my […]

DWTS Elimination and Mid-Week Yarn Pr0n

Wow. I actually called it! Leeza and Shandi in the bottom two, and Shandi sent home! I’m so glad Clyde was safe. I know the judges are pretty hard on him, and I think a lot of his problems stem from the height difference and his rotator cuff issues. His personality is really starting to […]

More Socky Pr0n!

Artsygal, she of the gorgeous laceweight seen here, has branched out into sock yarn. Unfortunately for my checkbook, she’s got some GORGEOUS colors.

Here we have “Iris”:

And here, “Laffy Taffy”:

Aren’t they beautiful?

And yes, I am aware that the colors in “Laffy Taffy” are remarkably like those in Adam’s “Printed Circuit Board” from […]

Yarn Nerd Pr0n

No, not actual nekkid pics of Adam. 😀 But, lovely pics of his equally lovely yarn, available at his shop.

900mHz Sock yarn in “Printed Circuit Board” – I saw this colorway in Adam’s etsy shop ages ago, but had trouble getting my etsy account open to pick it up then. Happily, he posted some […]

Stitch DC Pr0n, take 2

Some more goodies from my trip to Stitch DC two weeks ago.

Laines du Nord Mulberry Silk in “Berry Multi”:

No clue what it is going to be, but isn’t it gorgeous? I thought about making a silk Branching Out, but I realized that the colors are very similar to the bamboo one I […]
