Peg of Tilling: not that much of a mystery, really

A few years ago I decided I needed a dog-on-the-internet name (do you remember the early days New Yorker cartoon “On the internet nobody knows you’re a dog”?) and I was also re-reading the Lucia books by E. F. Benson (you should read them too, starting with Queen Lucia), and got to the part about Miss Mapp’s Pig of Tilling collection, and I thought “that would be a good internet name, but I’m not calling myself a pig”, so I went with Peg instead.

So, things about me: knitter since 2007, one-game Jeopardy! champ, self-taught graphics person, baking hobbyist. I rock the non-sexy librarian stereotype from the pencil in my hair to my sensible shoes and tote bag. Two cats, no kids.

I have a few patterns published in this blog, indexed on Ravelry. I consider them give-a-dollar-ware: you are encouraged to knit them for charity, and you may use them for your own personal projects, and if you do it would be nice if you gave a dollar to a deserving person. You don’t have to, but it would be nice. A barista. A kid. A street busker. Just someone to whom a dollar might mean more than it does for you.

Thanks for looking! Take nothing but a little blogformation, leave nothing but comments.

    I always wondered where Peg of Tilling came from! I thought it was from an Old English poem!

    I still think how cool it was to see you win on Jeopardy! :D
