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

Since my public beckons…

Hee… yeah, because I have a public. =) Seriously, you guys crack me up.

Anyway, nothing much going on here (No, Cristi, seriously), but I do have a couple of pictures to show.

First – I joined the Monthly Dishcloth KAL, and the mid-month one for August was the first pattern I did. (I skipped […]

Hot Stuff!

Why “Hot Stuff”? Because I finished Sizzle! Here it is, still blocking, but I’m planning to wear it tomorrow and will hold Kris down if necessary to get a picture of it actually on me. I love the way it fits, and if you are at all considering this pattern, I have one thing to […]

Cross Your Fingers…

… because I’m going to attempt to kitchener these babies. Here’s hoping I manage to do this without any major issues. For some reason, kitchener stitch eludes me.

I got a lovely set of stitch markers from sgeddes in today’s mail. Thank you, Shannon! I love them!

Seriously, this Stitch Marker Swap has been such […]

Objets d’Art

OK, since this is “objets d’art” week in Blogstalking, I guess I should find some, eh?

This is my favorite piece of art in the house.(Not the shawl, the chair) That is what is referred to in my family as the “Ugly Face Chair”. It belonged to my maternal grandparents and used to sit in […]

I’m Here!

I’ve been really bad lately about blogging, for a variety of reasons. First of all, this past weekend was that grand tradition of debauchery – EdFest! Basically, this is a group of people who have gotten together for a weekend every July since right after their freshman year in college, which makes this the 15th […]

Knitting Catch-Up

I will recap the Omaha trip soon, but I figured I’d better at least post something knitting-oriented, since I haven’t really posted in two weeks.

Lots of yarn pics to follow, and since it is a gorgeous day, I even took them outside in natural light. I hope Zib is proud of me. =)

The […]

One last post…

…before I really, truly go finish packing. =)

I got another of my swap packages today. I sent furrworld a whole bunch of acrylic that is left over from my crocheting days, as she is involved in Project Linus.

She sent me these: I think I won in that trade. =) They are beautiful!


Swapping ROCKS!

My kindhearted postman (who is probably ready to kill me for all the packages I’ve been sending out lately) brought me tow gifties today – my swaps from DonnaSC and tangledblue.

This is the yarn that DonnaSC sent me in exchange for some Manos wool. It is a fingering-weight wool, handpainted by her husband. The […]

Up for Grabs!

I edited the post to remove the stuff that has been spoken for. =)

So, I spent some time with the digital camera and the yarn that I have decided to offer for swap. Here it is:

Bernat Satin in Sunset, 2 full skeins and 125 g left over of partial skeins – about 540 […]
