Update: January 1, 2020

I was diagnosed with adult growth hormone deficiency (AGHD) due to a pituitary adenoma—non-cancerous tumor of the pituitary gland—in mid- to late-2014.

Symptoms of AGHD include fogginess and lack of energy, which is why my Ravelry account hasn’t been active for a very long time.

After ~4 years of HGH replacement therapy, I’m closer to being my old self and hoping to pick up where I left off, but have a lot to catch up on. Please be patient with me as I (slowly) try to put everything back together.

Thank you!

If you’re interested in learning more about AGHD or pituitary adenomas (which occur in ~10% of the population), visit these sites:

  1. National Organization for Rare Disorders (NORD): Growth Hormone Deficiency
  2. Stanford Healthcare: Adult Growth Hormone Deficiency
  3. Pituitary Network Association: Adult Growth Hormone Deficiency

Old bio:
I love socks, lace, and all sorts of ‘traditional’ knitting subjects. I studied Classics and textile history (independent minor) at Uni and have a love of anything ancient. That said, I also like to mix it up with modern shapes and silhouettes, often with a little tradition thrown in for fun.
