A ROSE BY ANY OTHER NAME...

...WILL BE OVERWEIGHT, NEUROTIC, & SOCIALLY AWKWARD.

OK. I need your help. As you may have read, I'm experiencing a bit of angst over my entrance into the International Confraternity of Popular Knitters, more commonly referred to as Ravelry.

Since making a good first impression is important, I thought I would enlist your help in selecting a username that will give all other Ravelry users an idea of my personality. A peak, if you will, into my soul.

So far I've come up with the following: TallDark&Handsome, KnittingStud, HotWorstedMan, Let'sGetWorsted, NoImNotFranklin, Size11US, or LaceWeightChampionoftheWorld.

Myfanwe suggested, in the "truth in advertising" vein: TiredSweatyandLazy, MoreExpensiveThanImWorth, NotHalfBadForaMiddleAgedWhiteGuy, or NotBadLookingIfYouSquint&TurnYourHeadJustSo. She's a kidder, she is.

Do you have any suggestions?

I vote for size11US . . . Don't worry. People on ravelry are nice :-) My name there is scienceprincess, so friend me when you decide on a name.

I'm sorry I don't have any great ideas for you, but I will happily take any leftover names you reject! I am already on Ravelry and I don't have a cool name either. :( My imagination seems to have withered and died after i hit whatever age it is I am at now.

I have no witty name either, which I can only assume is why no one has befriended me on Ravelry. Matter of fact, I don't even know what my name is on Ravelry. Oh, I just checked, my name is Angie, kind of like Cher, I think. Anyway, I vote for noiamnotfranklin, I thought that was funny. Can't you be famous for being "notfranklin"?

Worsted/wursted--why not combine interests? Figure out some play on that...
Sometimes knitting can resemble sausage making, love the output, but the process is a bit nerve wracking.

Why don't you want to use your Mollywobbles? many people do it there. I am Dodiraz. do you know what raz means in Hebrew?

I'm already on Ravelry (CalicoSarah) and I love it. I haven't had any contact with strangers, but the posts I read are nice.

Haha! Myfanwe is the best. I vote for "Charcuterie". See? It says cute in there. I used my actual name on Ravelry and I'm hoping I wont end up with a stalker.

Please use Mollywobbles so that you are easy to find! Could it truly be anything else?

PS - you are going to love Ravelry. And really the rest of us are just waiting for everyone to come in and join the party! We want to see your stash, your finish objects, your patterns... no secret handshake needed. :-)
