Thanks for landing here on String-or-Nothing. Long time readers know what I’ve got in my pocketses – usually something to knit or stitch.
Some of you may know me from other venues, most notably, as a web resident since the dawn of the Internet age, participating in BBSs, Genie After Dark, then email lists, early Usenet forums, the larval KnitList and other knitting/stitching related discussion groups. Or you may know me as Countess Ianthé d’Averoigne, OL, OR in the Society for Creative Anachronism; in which I am also an artifact of the distant past. You might have even come across my books of embroidery patterns, or my published knitting designs. Or perhaps you stumbled across me in a professional capacity. I was a proposal manager and writer specializing in engineering and high tech products and research – especially for small, emerging companies; but that was my day job.
I am abetted in my ventures by my family, including the offspring, Elder and Younger (both knitters and full-blooming nerds); and by the husband (aka, The Resident Male) – without whose support and encouragement I’d be stitching in a back room somewhere without the fun of sharing.
Right now the family is back together in the US after an extended stint living the Expat Life, accompanying The Resident Male on his posting in Pune, Maharashtra, India. There everything is new, strange, and perfumed with cumin.
