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!

Checking in

You know, it’s amazing what you can get done when you actually sit down and do it. During rehearsal Friday night, I bound off the front edge of the first half of Carmelo. After a weekend of trying to stay out of Kris’s way while he was working on NaNoWriMo (still going!), I am here:


Y’all Crack Me Up.

Seriously. Ok, first, thank you for the lovely compliments on the sweater – I adore it, and Kris is really thrilled with it. Bonus – he wore it all day yesterday, and so far, no pilling! Yay! And Yorkie, I must correct you a bit – I saw him first, my dear. But I’m sure […]

My One-Armed Man

OK, one-SLEEVED, technically.

Finished up the first sleeve at knitting today. I’m hoping to get the second one done tomorrow – I might actually have a NaKniSwe1/2Mo!

Another NaKniSweMo Update

We have sleeveage! Ok, the start of sleeveage, anyway.

I’ve decreased from 72 to 58 stitches on the first sleeve, and I need to get to 30 before I start the ribbing. I finished up the hem at the bottom a couple of days ago, and I’m very happy with how it […]


So, this weekend was the final Stitches East in Baltimore (it moves to Hartford next year, I believe), and therefore probably my last year to attend. There weren’t any classes that really grabbed me this year, so I just went up for the Market. I got up bright and early on Friday, and met Carrie […]


No, not me – iTunes. Have you iTunes users played with this at all yet? I just started today. I’ve had the new version for a while, but my verrrrrrry sloooooooow laptop was annoying me. I went and got more memory for it, and things are moving much faster, which makes me happy. It also […]

NaKniSweMo Update #1

I am sooooooo close to splitting off the sleeves. Yay!

And it looks like hubby likes it, too. Even if he is slightly blurry (I blame lack of light at 5:30 in my living room, not lack of skill by the photographer) And yes, you will notice he has significantly less hair […]

One More Voice Heard

Kris had decided last week that he was getting up early this morning so that he could vote before work. I decided to go with him. We got to the high school just a few minutes before the polls opened at 7. The line was significant, which made us both happy. We […]

NaKniSweMo 2008

That’s right. I am taking the plunge this year.

For the non-knitters among you, NaKniSweMo stands for National Knit a Sweater Month. As in, start it on the first, finish it on the 30th. It was started as a companion to the NaNoWriMo challenge (National Novel Writing Month). The goal is a 50,000 stitch sweater, […]

This EoP Thing is Addictive

Seriously – I’ve been working on the Liberated Laceweight shawl pretty continually this weekend, which is way easy to do, what with no charts or anything to mess with. Of course, I did have some snarling issues on Saturday, so I lost about two hours detangling and re-winding, but even so, check out how big […]
