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!

Well, here she is. The lovely Ishbel in her subtly sparkly glory.The yarn is Blue Heron Rayon Metallic in “Bluegrass”.


The pattern is an utter dream – I really loved knitting it.I started out doing the small version because I wasn’t sure if I had enough yarn for the larger option. Shortly after I started the lace section, I created one of my traditional spreadsheets to figure out how far I was along. I realized after weighing the yarn remaining that I had enough to do the larger. So, I hybridized – the small version of the stockinette with the large version of the lace.


The yarn has fabulous drape, and I loved knitting it. That’s probably why it only took me 8 days from start to finish. 🙂

*Edited to tweak the arrangement and add the second photo.  First post was a trial post-by-phone, since the plugin I was using to do that has ceased to function correctly.
