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!

Summer Fling Secret Pal Strikes Again!

I got a PM the other day on the knittyboards from applepieisyum, letting me know that she was my SFSP, but had been a little absent due to the slightly early arrival of her beautiful baby girl. She wanted me to know that my package was on its way. It arrived today, and all I […]

Yorkie Day!

Yes, that’s right – you need to be jealous – I got to spend yesterday with the Siress herself, knittyboard’s own Yorkshire Gal. Which makes this the third week in a row I’ve spent hanging with a non-local Knittyhead, now that I think about it. Hee!

I picked her up yesterday and we headed over […]

Playing Catch-Up

Let’s see… I know I owe Kennywood pictures, so for those of you who are interested, Kris has a flickr set here. It’s not all of them just yet, but he’s going to put the rest of them up soon.

Also – current knitting progress. I have put my One Skein Tank in time out […]

Twice in One Day!

OK, so I probably could have waited and posted this tomorrow, but I’m certainly not the first to post twice in one day. =)

So, I had put a couple of things out for the mailman today, and I wanted to check to see if they had been picked up yet. When I opened the […]

I’ve crossed over…

… to the crochet side.

OK, so I’ve actually known how to crochet for a few years, but I haven’t done it in quite some time. Then I picked up the new Stitch ‘n Bitch Crochet book, and I really liked some of the designs, so I decided to pick up the hooks again. This […]

Lamb Chop Would Be Proud…

… or possibly horrified.

I have decided that 2 completed projects is enough to make me feel like an Olympic success, so I will not be declaring anything else “official” events. That doesn’t mean I don’t have challenges for myself.

For example – Kris’s socks. I ordered this yarn in my first-ever Knit Picks order, […]

I Got a Present!!!

I opened my mailbox today to find a present for me from my lovely Knittyboard SP! Look at the goodies she sent me: That is a ball of KnitPicks Palette in “Petal” – a gorgeous shade of pink, a very sweet note, a yummy-looking bar of dark chocolate (which I will be hiding from hubby), […]

A Finished Object and SP Goodies!

So, yesterday, I finshed casting off my Kiri shawl and blocked it. This does it, folks – I adore lace. While I had been working on it, I would stretch it from time to time to get an idea of how it would look when it was done, but I had NO IDEA what the […]

My SP loves me!

Today has been an awesome day. Kris and I were out running around doing some errands, and I decided to stop in to Old Navy, since their jeans are on sale, and, well, a girl can never have too many pairs of jeans, right? So, I was pretty sure that the diet was going well […]
