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!

Buffalo Chicken Chili

Yorkie was mentioning recipes the other day on the Knittyboard, and I realized that it’s been a while since I posted any. So, since it’s getting fall-like and into soup-friendly weather, here is my recipe for Buffalo Chicken Chili – all the flavor of good hot wings without the ridiculous amounts of fat in ACTUAL […]

Renn Faire!

So, we spent yesterday at the Maryland Rennaisance Festival with Carrie, Alex and Irene (and ran into Amanda and Cassandra, but didn’t get to hang with them much, because we seemed to be going in opposite directions every time 🙁 ) We did a little shopping (and I ordered something that I might model once […]

Food Meme

Found this on Serious Eats today (Can you tell I’m a fan? That’s where I found out about the Ramen birthday, too), and I thought I’d post this one. It’s similar to the knitting list that has been around for a while, but it’s foods. To quote from Very Good Taste (where SE found it):


I’m Covered in Sawdust Again

Because Kris took the day off (sort of – he’s on a conference call right now, which is why I’m on my laptop) so we can continue working on the porch. It’s a perfect day today – overcast and not super-hot out. I cut three joists myself while he started on his call, but the […]

Spring Is Here

What makes me say that?

Rita’s Gelati – Wild Black Cherry with vanilla custard.

I’m a happy woman.

For My Nutella-Loving Friends

I, too, am a fan of the deliciousness that is that combination of chocolate and hazelnut. However, I have found a competitor for my affections.

Peanut Butter & Co. Dark Chocolate Dreams. So, so yummy. I found it at my local grocery store, but you can also order it online. And they make other flavors […]

A Different Sort of WIP

Well, Spanish Dancer looks pretty much the same, only wider, and although I’ve finished sleeve #1 on Cherie Amour, I kinda want to keep it under wraps until it’s done, because I ended up doing something totally different with the sleeves, and I want you to get the full effect, rather than seeing it part […]

Non-knitting FO

Heck, a non-fiber arts FO!

I picked up a copy of the Panera Bread Cookbook (because I loooooove Panera) last week, and last night, I made this: Would you like a closer look? That would be the Three Cheese Bread from the aforementioned cookbook. Possibly the easiest bread I have ever made, and so SO […]

Christmas Stollen Recipe

So, I love to cook, and I like to share recipes with people from time to time. Even when I take abuse for the instantaneous diabetic coma induced by some of them (and yes, Yorkie, I’m looking at you)

So, I thought I would share with you a recipe from my great-aunt Ivynella (or Aunt […]

Blogstalking! And another recipe!

This week in blogstalking… tools. Clearly, I opted for knitting tools. I thought about shooting Kris’s woodworking tools, but they are big. And I could have done cooking tools, but I have WAY too many, and it would be embarassing to show that. =) So, knitting tools it is. In the front are my straight […]
