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!

Design Update

I think I’m kind of bored with the grey-and-green thing around here, so I found an alternate theme to make things a little brighter. Hopefully I’ll manage to do that without breaking anything, but if things look odd for a bit, bear with me. 🙂 I’m working on it, I promise.

OK, I don’t have […]

Well, ONE Way to Avoid Spam

Is just to not post for, what, almost a week? *facepalm* I just haven’t been feeling the blog urge lately. Steve and I were talking about it the other night – we’ve both noticed that most of the blogs we read have been on the quiet side. I’m chalking it up to summer.

I spotted […]


I’m sick of having to go through spambot comments to make sure that real ones don’t get deleted (and I have caught a few that were mis-filed by Akismet), so I’ve added a new plugin that I’m hoping will help with it. It does use Javascript and cookies, so if you leave a comment and […]

We Have the Best Friends in the World.

And I think you’ll all agree with me.

So, this weekend was EdFest, preceeded by the Rush concert in PA. We drove up to see Steve and Mindy Thursday afternoon, and then went to the show. It was awesome. I’m not a huge fan – I like them and all, but the show was way […]

Joss Whedon is a Genius

Have you seen this yet? It’s absolutely hilarious. Act 2 is up today, and Act 3 goes up on Saturday. I just hope I’ve got an internet connection and can watch it.

Why might I not have a connection, you ask? Because this weekend is EDFEST! That’s right, folks, it’s time once again for that […]

WIP Wednesday

First of all, thank you ALL for your sweet thoughts on yesterday’s blog post. It’s not something I want to get into publically right now, but those who know me well have pretty much figured out what I was talking about. It’s not anything terrible – no divorce pending or anything like that. Kris and […]


Have you ever wanted something so badly for so long that when life finally reaches a point that you have the opportunity to pursue it, you aren’t entirely sure if you really want it, or if wanting it has just become habit at this point? And it’s something that is going to take a lot […]

Don’t Fall Off Your Chairs

Yes, I’m posting handspun on Handspun Monday again. 🙂 Welcome to update #2 on the Tour de Fleece. I’ve finished up my first bobbin of the silk hankies, and I plied it last night – only my second attempt at Navajo plying, and I think it went pretty darn well. 🙂

(Dammit… […]

WIP Wednesday and TdF Update

Yes, I have been spinning every day since I started the Tour de Fleece. I haven’t been taking pictures because, well, it doesn’t actually look all that different.

It’s really, really thin, and I know I’m going to ply it. I just haven’t decided if it’s going to be a 2- or […]

I Has a Hot Tub!

Yup – it delivered yesterday afternoon.

(Apologies to the delivery dude who chose a poor position at the moment I snapped the picture…)

It fits right where we wanted it, and the base matches the walls nicely, which we were hoping.

We started filling it. (That […]
