Meet My Other Personalities Gertrude and Rachel

April 20, 2008

I apologize for my brief hiatus. Things have been busy on the weekends and work has been exhausting. But I’m back now, if you’ve missed me.

IMG_0271In the meantime, here are two of my lizard ridge squares, obviously different sizes. What you can’t tell from the pictures is that they are really different sizes, about 2 inches different. And there’s a third size, in between the two. Obviously this means that I have other personalities. Gertrude is a stressed out, tight knitter who can’t count rows. Rachel drinks after two glasses of wine and is an incredibly relaxed and loose knitter.

I have had to rip out 3 squares knit by Rachel and 4 knit by Gertrude. I have 15 “good” squares, 7 to redo and then 2 left to finish. Bill has been helping me rip out the “bad” squares while we catch up on Galactica. (So good!)

Let’s hope that Gertrude and Rachel leave me alone for a bit, or at least long enough to finish this project.

About Me

Welcome to my spot on the web where I talk about needlework, crafts, and [many] other random things.

A few tidbits about me: I met my husband in college, flirting over tuba letters in the Penn Band. Our dog, CJ, and our cat, Sabrina, round out our family. I'm a sewist, knitter and needlepointer, and an occasional scrapbooker. I love organizing, reading, making jewelry, and hiking. A Chicago girl at heart, I am an avid follower the Cubs, Bears, and Blackhawks.

You can email me at mlynapier [at] pobox [dot] com. Thank you for stopping by!

My Etsy Shop

A place for me to sell my handmade goods. My style? It's fun and funky with a hint of romance.
