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!

Ok, that sounds a little scary, but really, it’s not!
I got an email from Little Knits a couple of weeks ago about some sales, and I was looking at the HandMaiden Sea Silk. I’ve looked at it before, and have resisted, but this time I just couldn’t.
This color called to me. Aside from the fact that it is just lovely and bright and beautiful, the color name just didn’t give me a choice.

It’s called “Dragonfly”.
And no, I didn’t have a clue what I was going to do with it when I ordered it. Luckily for me, the new Winter Knitty came out just a few days after I ordered it. And in that issue? Jeanie. The perfect pattern for this yarn.
I brought this with me to my regular Thursday knitting group yesterday, and everyone was petting it. I kept it out on the table and was referring to it as my “carrot” – once I got through that (*#^$(@#*^ bind-off on Spanish Dancer, I was allowed to cast on for Jeanie.

And as of last night, I finished. Of course, you’ll have to wait until it’s done drying (it’s soaking now, and I’ll block it in a bit) to see it. So, sometime this weekend.
