I have always known my older sister was better than me in every way. Smarter, prettier, more popular, perhaps… more loved? Growing up I was merely a secondary planet in orbit around her blue-eyed, golden-haired magnificence. She did everything first, better, and with a self-confidence I just never had. She is also a much better knitter than I am...

I’ve always been a worrier (that’s WORRIER, not WARRIOR!). Picture a long scroll of paper, the end fading out somewhere into eternity; written on it, are my worries.

Alas, My Pretties, for me the design process is like a journey through a Garden Maze. In the beginning I may have a vague idea of what I want to design. I usually have an inspiration that propelled me into the maze, which may or may not make it through to the finished pattern. As in wanting to portray the delicate pendulous hearts on my Bleeding...

I have never been one to shrink from my duty, as my late husband would attest, were he still alive to bring testament to the fact. So when Cora begged me to advise her distant cousin - yet another American, from a deflowered branch of the family tree - I felt it my moral obligation to take the poor woman under my wing, so to speak.

When my daughters were toddlers, my sister (“Auntie Barbara”) made them those adorable Pumpkin Hats to wear. You’ve seen them, they’re everywhere, and each one cuter than the last.

High School was difficult for me, academically as well as socially. And those plaid circle skirts (made by my mother), with red tights and white ankle socks won me neither fashion nor academic accolades! But I eventually had something in my wardrobe to draw admiring rather than horrified stares in the hallways of Hunter College High School.

Kerfuffle is a silly shawlette, or maybe it’s a scarf, I’m not exactly sure. However, when I saw those 2 skeins of Malabrigo Worsted Merino in Halcyon Yarns last week, I knew they were meant for me, and meant to be joined together by me in a long “something-or-other” as my Ravellenics project.
