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

Guess what this means…

That’s right – it’s DONE! I finished the knitting yesterday morning, wove in the last of the ends last night, and it’s soaking now. I’m hoping it dries quickly so that I can get some good modeled shots of it tomorrow. In the meantime:

And now, I think I’m […]

Still Not Knitting

Yeah, I know. I said there would be knitting. I fibbed. Soon. Kris is feeling lazy-ish tonight, so we’re probably going to be watching movies. I’m going to get back to working on the Mystery Stole.

In the meantime, a FO, some planned projects, and a kickass gift.

First, the FO:

What […]

Frenchy Shoulder Bag

I’m feeling a little better today – no sore throat, but I’m still stuffy. Stupid cold. Just annoying.

This morning was my first guide class for the Bernina – I had a lot of fun, and I definitely learned some nice tricks with my machine. So, of course I came home and had to sew. […]

The Obsession Continues

So, yesterday I dragged Kris up to JoAnn Fabrics to pick out some stuff to make myself a yoga mat bag. I figure, if I’m taking yoga class, I should have a stylish way to carry my mat to and fro, right? Kris found this adorable dragonfly print fabric, and I turned it into this:


Yup. Addicted.

Did these tonight.

The green one is for Mom (HA! You thought I’d say me!), the other one is for me. These are a little bigger than the earlier one (8″ x 9″ instead of 6″ x 8″), which is now my official camera case.

And on the back:


And Now For Something Completely Different.

I spent today bonding with a sadly-neglected member of my crafty army – my sewing machine. I’ve gotten seriously bitten by the sewing bug lately, so much so that Kris and I are in negotiations for an upgraded machine for my birthday/Christmas present this year.

The first thing I did, well… I can’t show you. […]

(Dragon)Fly-By FO Post

Just a quick post before I head out to meet Carrie, Jaime and Heather for dinner and (finally) “Mamma Mia”. We’re having a girls’ night out while Kris is off playing AirSoft with Alex.

We caught a quick break in the rain today, just long enough to get a picture of the finished February Lady […]

A Slightly Belated FO Post

So, my successful Ravelympics project was Doris Chan’s Chrysanthemum Tea Skirt, a variation she did on her Chrysanthemum Tea Shawl from the cover of Amazing Crochet Lace, and which I made a while back. I love that shawl, and when I saw the skirt variation, I knew I had to make it.

As you may […]

Grab a Seat.

This is going to be a long one, I’m warning you. You might want to grab yourself a fresh cup of coffee or tea, and possibly take a potty break before starting.

OK, you ready? Really, go pee. I’m not kidding.

So, one of my goals on the cruise was to finally finish what I […]

The Anti-Cristi

See, I’m never going to be as fabulous and elegant as Cristi and her glass of wine. I’m really more of a beer kind of girl. So, since I finished my Ribbon Clapotis, I thought I should have the FO photoshoot as something of a more me-esque homage to her Ivy League Vest post.

So, […]
