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!

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:


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 […]

WIP Wednesday

So, this week’s WIP is a little, erm, less than “in progress” as of yet.

You see there Knit Picks Telemark in “Garnet Heather”, “Charcoal Heather”, and “Squirrel Heather”, topped by Knit Picks Risata in “Ash”. The reason it isn’t in progress just yet? I haven’t designed the project.

See, a […]

Pink? What the…

One thing you will notice if you peruse my stash, my wardrobe, pretty much my home in general is that you will not find much in the way of pink.

I blame my parents. Back in the early 1970’s, when they bought the house I grew up in, they painted my bedroom a shade […]

Limbo Pr0n!

Why limbo? Because I’m sneaking in just under the wire, of course. 😀

Just one quick pic today – some Blue Sky Alpaca and Silk that I bought at the totally lovely Charlotte Yarn while visiting Cristi and Aimee and May and all the other kickass Charlotte knitters for SAFF. It’s going to be a […]

Warm and Cozy Pron

This week, we have Knit Picks Sock Sampler in Warm Colors. I ordered this (along with the Neutrals) with plans to make myself a sweater using some techniques I learned in my “Stashology 201” class with Christine Bylsma at Stitches East this fall. (GREAT class. Awesome teacher. If you ever have the chance to take […]

Buggy Pr0n

Ok, that sounds a little scary, but really, it’s not! I got an email from Little Knits a couple of weeks ago about some sales, and I was looking at the HandMaiden Sea Silk. I’ve looked at it before, and have resisted, but this time I just couldn’t. This color called to me. Aside from […]

Deep Inhale…

… *whoooooooooo* There. That should get the dust off this puppy.

As it was so subtly pointed out to me by someone on Googlechat last night, it’s been two weeks since my last blog entry. I didn’t plan for it to go that long, but sometimes life has other plans, you know?

So, since we […]

Massively Multipurpose Catch-Up Post

First of all, happy birthday to… me! That’s right – as of today, I am 34 years old. Maybe one of these days, I’ll even get around to growing up. (Oh, stop laughing. I didn’t say it was likely.)

Second – check out that Hats for Alex counter! Since Weezalana started her contest, I’ve gotten […]

Juuuuust to beat a dead horse…

I have on more color combo, and I think it might be the winner. I definitely agree with those who have said that the Sherbet seems a little too bright for the rest of the colors (although I love it and I can’t wait to make socks from it!). I’m also a little concerned about […]
