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!

Knitting Blogs & Sites

Yeah, yeah.

I’m lame, I know. I am just not feeling the blogging mojo right now – I think it’s a combination of things, not least of which is the weather, which is making me not feel like knitting. No knitting = little to blog about.

Anyway, yes, I am still planning to update the design here, […]

Could It Be?

Yes, it’s actual yarn pr0n!!!

Presenting Scarlet Fleece Painted Merino, purchased at The Celtic Knot on a trip up there with my buddies Carrie, Maryanne, and Carol this week.

It is already on its way to becoming has already become a pair of […]

Try not to faint.

But yes, I’m actually posting two days in a row!

Since I finished up CW2*, I started on the Twilight Capelet last night while watching Dancing With The Stars (Yes, I’m watching again. I’m just not doing the recaps. Although I am totally loving Sabrina Bryan. It’s her season if she wants it.). By the […]

WIP Wednesday

So, I finally got to start the Mystery Stole. I didn’t have a chance this weekend, because we had a friend of ours visiting, so I waited to cast on until Monday night at my once-a-month knitting group. I made it most of the way through chart A while I was there, and finished up […]

MDS&W Pr0n – Week 7

The last of the STR from Sheep and Wool – Mediumweight in Seastone

And yes, I am aware that three of the five colors I bought were blues and greens (Plus the green Footzey Foo heavyweight I used for my Red Dwarf Socks). It was slightly less obvious when I was also picking up […]

WIP Wednesday 3

Yes, I know. I missed Handspun Monday this week. I’m lame.

So, anyone care to take a stab at what the WIP of the week is here? Yup. Molly’s Sleeves. I really, really hoped I’d have them done for this week, but I just didn’t quite make it. The sleeve on the right is done, […]

WIP Update

So, I’ve been surprisingly faithful to one project since last week’s WIP Wednesday post. In fact, other than swatching for the Mystery Stole 3 KAL (more on that in a minute), I’ve only worked on my Molly Weasley Sleeves.

Last week, I showed you this picture, but like I said then, that wasn’t an accurate […]

You Wanted FO Pics?

You got ’em!

First – my Chrysanthemum Tea Shawl from Amazing Crochet Lace. This is a FABULOUS book. If you crochet, you really should give it a look.

Blocking: Artfully draped over, er, a box:

And now, semi-knitting FO. I went to Ikea (Ah, how I love thee…) last Friday night (while Kris was […]

WIPs, FOs, and the Kindness of Knitties

So, I did actually finish that crocheted scarf that I showed you, and courtesy of the crappy-ass weather we’ve been having, I’ve been wearing it quite a bit. Here ’tis: I also finished the Counterpoint scarf I’ve been working on as a “Congratulations” gift for my friend Hillary, who is off to NYU this fall […]

DWTS Elimination and Mid-Week Yarn Pr0n

Wow. I actually called it! Leeza and Shandi in the bottom two, and Shandi sent home! I’m so glad Clyde was safe. I know the judges are pretty hard on him, and I think a lot of his problems stem from the height difference and his rotator cuff issues. His personality is really starting to […]
