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!

In honor of Talk Like a Pirate Day, this picture that Kris took at the Ren Fair this weekend:
How awesome is that? His name is Stefan Rosario – he’s the nicest guy, and he has a great gallery of pictures people have sent him here. We were chatting with him while looking at kilts in one of the shops. I’m betting he’s going to have a blast there this weekend – it’s Pirate Weekend at the Faire! (And yes, we’re probably going back. We finally broke down and bought costumes to wear for Halloween and at the Faire, and Kris needs a couple of accessories.)

And in non-pirate news, Carbon Leaf has a new cd out – Love, Loss, Hope, Repeat! Mine came in today’s mail. Yay!!! And we FINALLY got a copy of Robin Hood: Men in Tights on dvd, which we have been waiting for for years. It’s the dopiest movie, but I love it.

And in knitting news, I joined the Grey’s Anatomy KAL. I’m FINALLY going to start working on the Handyman Sweater from the Fall ’05 issue of Knitter’s Magazine. I’m making it in Cascade 220 in Black and Grey, so it’s totally appropriate. 😀

ETA: I shrunk the picture, so that might help those who are having formatting issues with the blog. I hope.

    I love it!

    I know how you feel about getting Men in Tights – I got giddy when Zorro: The Gay Blade was *finally* available on DVD.

    I’m a dork, I know!

    We’re meeeeen, we’re men in tights
    We steal from the rich and give to the poor…that’s right!

    Please. It’s a fab movie. Hubby leaves the room if I’m watching it, along with my other faves–the original Buffy, Bill and Ted, and Pulp Fiction.

    *ahem* I used to work at RenFest weekends in high school. How geeky is that?? (blush)

    All the pirates wear makeup, heavy on the black eyeliner now days! I wonder, oh I wonder why? 😉

    Something has changed about your blog, so I think you might have it ‘fixed’.
