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!

Orange You Glad I Didn’t Say Banana?

You guys remember that awful old knock knock joke, right? Sorry to bring up an old groaner, but you’ll understand momentarily what made me think of it. 🙂

Anyway, I thought I’d show you the goodies I picked up at the fibre tasting at fibre space on Friday. I went with a plan in mind […]

Taking Flight

That’s right – my Icarus shawl is done!

Pre-blocking, laid out on the kitchen table. Already big.

Taking a little bath. Sadly, this will be the last time I soak anything in this salad spinner. I’ve been using it for 4 years to soak my knits and handspun, and it developed a […]

I Fell Down

See, I’ve been pretty good lately. Haven’t been buying much yarn or fiber, because I really, really have been trying to work from the stash. And then Olga Tweeted on Wednesday that she needed a local to help her out with a design (She needed someone to work up a sample, so I can’t blog […]

Yarn Pr0n, er, Thursday Wednesday

Yeah, I haven’t done any YPF posts in forever. I’m sure Cristi has booted me from the webring by now. 😀 But I’ve gotten a few new things that I wanted to show off.

First, if you are a Rockin’ Sock Club member and haven’t seen this yet, well, why the heck haven’t you opened […]

LazyMan Update, Week One

OK, first, thank you all for being so sweet about my last post. I should let you know, though, that my friend wasn’t being as awful as that probably sounded. He and I have known each other since high school, and that’s just kind of how we are – we bust on each other. He […]

When My Public Speaks, I Listen

My public. HA!

Anyway, y’all requested being able to see the dress to properly advise me, so here it is. And pardon the it’s-9:30-and-I-had-yoga-tonight look. 😀


Back (Hello, tattoo #3!):

I think I’m leaning toward a shrug rather than a shawl, mostly for ease and not having to […]

A Little Help?

So, we have two friends who are getting married next month (Yay!). I found a really cute dress yesterday while Yorkie and I were terrorizing the Annapolis Mall. I can’t find a picture of it on the Torrid website (of course), but it’s white with a big blue floral print, and black accents (kinda Katy […]

NaKniSweMo08 Complete!

NaNoWriMo08… still in process.

Explaining to Meeko that claws + sweater = repercussions for the owner of said claws.

Plotting the placement of the shed.

Squinting at the sun (it was the only shot I got of the collar. 🙂 )

Chatting with […]

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 […]
