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.

SAFF Fail. :(

Yeah… I’m not going to make it down to SAFF this year. I really, really wanted to go, but things were just not lining up. Amanda‘s been travelling so much for work and stuff that she wasn’t going to be able to go with me (and I don’t fault her for that), I just can’t […]

And I know, I […]
