Slowly but surely, I am getting back into the rhythm of things. I am still doing some deep cleaning... and organizing—re arranging—and as I do, I am happier with my life. Shelving that been hanging around for months (some ...

There is a meme that goes round on FB “Another day gone by, and I still haven't used Algebra”--this annoys me, because algebra includes such basic stuff as mixed addition. The ability to look at a handful of coins in your...

And the knitting easier. I had tried out a few patterns before I settled on this spiral—and then I just jump in on this pattern, with out a thought about pre-planning. Spirals are wonderful for work in the round—the best o...

and lots of other good thing! Every day I am feeling better and better—more and more like my old self, I've lost 1 pound (only 1000 or so more to go!) And while I have been to the doctor/clinic 4 times this month, (and nee...

Worst case scenario has played out. After a half dozen tries, I finally figured out a lace edging pattern (I have it saved somewhere, but couldn't fine it... I eventually found a swatch, re worked it, and documented it.) ...

Saturday past, I went to a mid winter festival sponsored by the CSA my daughter is associated with, which was held at the historic Flushing Meeting house. I've been to other Flushing CSA events, and this time, (as in the p...

Just over 2 years ago, my DD gave birth to twin girls--(No twins do not run in the family, one (of a huge number!) of 3rd cousins had twins—so there are a pair of 4th cousin who are twins--hardly common occurrence!) For t...

On the socks—I want them but somehow, I just don't want to knit them. So I carry them with me, to and fro, to doctors visits, and other activities, and instead, I read the paper, of do the crossword puzzle, or week old magazi...

Well—let's start at the beginning. I have, since early childhood, suffered from bouts of depression. They come, they go. I was lucky enough in adolescence to have learned some coping mechanism, and by early adulthood, I had l...

Once again, its a long time since I posted here. I've been busy—New knitting videos on my web page, and more to come (very soon) and other work there, too. I've also been working on a scarf (that is about to bite the dust...6...

Story
Introduction

Not quite a polymath, but way more commited than a dilettant, I am one of those people who has failed at specialization.

Currently, I am engaged in pattern writing—specifically for knittng, but I also blog and maintain a web page, make videos, and... the list goes on.

I am occasionally achronisitc, but more often, I am slightly ahead of the curve (for my age cohort) –most often I am 2 standard deviations from the norm!

NYC born and bred, I can't imagine living any where else.
