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!

Gloves… and a Kitty!

So, the Some Like It Hot gloves are progressing nicely.  Nothing left to do but 8-1/2 fingers.  See:


OK, they look like utter crap like that.  The ribbing pulls them in.  So… a glove with a thumb and 1/2 of a forefinger, modeled:


I’m loving these, and I can’t wait to finish them up!

And now, a gratuitous picture of a fat kitty stalking a laser pointer dot. Rowena loves that damn thing.  She’s a loon.


One of these days, I need to get video of her chasing it around the room.  It’s quite funny.

  • rebel

    I love it… she’s all still and staring at the spot but her tail is just a blur. so cute!

  • I’ve been tormenting my roommate’s kitties with a laser pointer too.. fun isn’t it?

    They are beautiful – but knitting 10 fingers scares me!

    Ooo!!! A green laser pointer!!

    I hope it gets cold enough to wear those gloves. That pattern would make a sexy sock too…

  • you have a cat? (checks sidebar and sees you have 3) I don’t think we see your critters nearly as often as we should.

    Kashka prefers the red laser over the green… speaking of which, I should find the red laser and get it more batteries so I can tease her properly

  • Love the “tail in motion” shot of the cat 🙂 Glad you’re loving your gloves. They’re pretty!

  • Your gloves are amazing! Unfortunately, where I live, there’s only about three days in the year where these would be neither too hot nor too cold… I wish you many perfect days to show these off in.

    You know, when I saw those gloves in the book I thought they’d be something I definitely wouldn’t make. Seeing them on you in fingerless form, I’m thinking they’d be perfect just like that for me. I fingers and wrists get so cold in some of the air conditioned offices here in the desert and I’ve been thinking about making some fingerless gloves. I really like the length of these though and the pattern is so pretty! Thanks for giving me a new look at them! And I love that color too. Must look for laser pointer for my cats now!

  • Those gloves are quite fab. I can’t wait to see the FO

    Oh, these are swanky!! I might have to try to knit them for opening night! 🙂 Well, first I have to get my two hats done. Ugh!
