Hi, I'm Aubrey. I'm a knitter, spinner, and web developer living in the Boston area.
I learned to knit in 2002 after a few friends of mine decided to knit Harry Potter scarves to wear to one of the movies. I didn't finish my scarf in time, but I've continued knitting all the things since then. I knit socks and shawls the most, but I'm known to knit the occasional sweater or hat at times.
Spinning fiber's one of my favorite ways to relax. I started spinning on a spindle in 2006 and bought my first wheel, and Ashford Traditional, in 2007. I bought my second wheel, a Schacht Ladybug, in 2015. I prefer spinning fingering weight yarn and I chain-ply most of the time, as I love the color progression chain-plying gives me.
I love CHRISTMAS, sushi, the ocean, glitter, Harry Potter, the Mistborn series, bright colors, chocolate, sour beers and gruits, tea, and fun colored pens. I’m not a huge fan of cheese, pasta, and balloons.
About this site
I registered this domain name in August 2000 when I finally received my driver's license. Initially I used it to post updates about my now defunct online journal (who remembers those days?), but in December 2000, I started this blog.
As blogging became more popular, I started writing in this blog more than the online journal, and now I've been writing on here for over 15 years. This blog has been powered by Blogger, Greymatter, b2, Moveable Type, Drupal, Jekyll, and Wordpress, and is currently powered by Drupal 8 using the Lightning distribution.
Thanks for reading!
