Worked on the Hugo socks. I took them to the living room to photograph, and they remain there, untouched since yesterday. I did get a few more rows done on my double knit potholder (1)--It's a variation on a theme—interl...

I am following the pattern. From the first repeat, I was unsure, and I continue to be, but I am following the pattern.  (Reminder, this is the HUGO sock by Stefanie Bold.)  It's a simple one. First—the directions are needl...

I thing I don't like about google + is people i don't know keep adding me to their circles.  And i have no way to find out anything about them.  I guess i am just not social enough for most social networks.

So busy, that I found it hard to remember just what I did! Good stuff, bad stuff, busy stuff. I am feeling old—The older generation, (my parents and their peers) is just about gone. My father remains, in body, but his mind i...

of the Hugo sock, and I have knit 8 inches. I am happy with the progress! Actually, I am a few rounds past 8 inches (but less than 8.25). I intend to do a few more rounds before I start the heel flap. 8 inches just doesn't lo...

I cast on, and started the S-I-L sock with great enthusiasm. Day 1, 2.25 inches ribbing done. Day 2, a solid 1.75 inches if the leg done, getting the pattern established, and visible. Day 3, (yesterday) 1.25 inches done...

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.
