About

You clicked the “About” link because, presumably, you wish to know more about The International Knitter of Mystery.  Of course, the more you know about me, the less Mysterious I become.  And what is life without a little mystery?  I do not plan to write about my job, my family (except when they intercept or prevent my knitting directly), my locality, or the weather.  I plan to blog about knitting, reading about knitting, and thinking about knitting.  I hope to make you laugh (or at least smile), and point you toward Cool Knitting Stuff.  I will tell you what else makes me happy, so that you can decide whether reading what I write might make you happy.

Knitting, of course, is a gimme.

Things that drive me round the bend, in no particular order

What makes me International, you ask?  This is Teh Interwebs, so we’re all International, ducks.  I am on Ravelry.  I am on Facebook.  But you don’t know who I am <insert evil laugh here>!

I do not Tweet.
