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!

So, you may not have been aware of this, but I’ve been in Pittsburgh for the past week. Mom and Dad came down for Thanksgiving (which blossomed from just the four of is to include our friends Hyon and Drew, their 18-month-old Clint, and Drew’s parents Mare and Paco for dinner as well as our other friends Scott and Dawn and their 6-year-old Justin and 6-month-old Hannah for dessert). Since Mom is still on crutches, I went back up with them to help her with the Christmas decorating at her house. Kris came up this past Friday and we got back last evening.

We also went up on Saturday to see Kris’s Mom and deliver her Christmas gift (one of them, anyway – the other one is in the mail to her. :D) – the Cozy I knit for her. It is done in Schaefer Marjaana (50/50 wool-silk blend) in the “Renata Tebaldi” colorway – burgundys and browns and some purples and pinks (pics as soon as Kris gets them off the camera). She definitely seemed to like it, although she did read me the riot act a bit for taking the time to knit her something when I have other stuff to do. I tried to tell her that I wanted to do it, but she still insisted that I didn’t need to. Doesn’t she know that’s the point?

While I was going, Kris was keeping me updated on the hats that were arriving in the mail – there have been over 50 in the last week. I’m hoping to get a few more today and get them shipped out by the end of the week. So far, we’re at 156 – only 42 more to go!
