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

New Goodies!

Today, we have a combination of things that have come into my life – stuff from Etsy and some stuff I made. It’s all about needle wrangling today. 😀

First – Etsy. I’ve determined that my new Twitter habit is very, VERY dangerous. People like to tweet about awesome stuff they find on Etsy. Since […]

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. […]

Yes, More Sewing

And yes, it’s another wristlet.

But, there is something special about this one! This is the very first thing I have sewn on my birthday/Christmas present from my darling hubby:

My brand-new, picked-it-up-today Bernina Aurora 430. It is a thing of beauty, and I am completely in love. I’m […]

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:


What a Simple Meme Can Do

So, I posted that song title meme, and this is what has been wrought:

See, I’ve been a Billy Joel fan since I was a kid. Specifically, since the “An Innocent Man” era. I listened to that and “Greatest Hits Vol I and II” about a billion times. Eventually, I amassed all […]

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. […]

Under the Wire

First of all, thank you for your kind thoughts and prayers for Kirsten and her family. She’s an amazing woman, and I cannot believe how strong she has been dealing with the loss of Alex. I will actually see her this weekend – she’s the one who planned the Kennywood trip almost 2 years ago. […]

Whaddaya know?

There’s a BLOG here! I’ve been a neglectful blogger, I know. In my defense… um… yeah, I got nothing.

I have been working on the 2nd baby quilt and the last Baby Bolero, both of which need to be done before we leave for Pittsburgh this coming Thursday (Yay!! Kennywood!!!). I got the strips for […]
