Plain Jane Knits Up A Storm

A few musings about my needlecraft hobbies - knitting, crocheting, quilting, & cross-stitch along with my other love, genealogy. While growing up, I used to HATE the term "Plain Jane", but when it comes to knitting & crocheting, I've realized that I really *am* a Plain Jane in that I don't use fancy yarns.

A Rose By Any Other...

Found this one on Shelob's site who originally borrowed it from Sallee's:
LogoThere are
people with my name
in the U.S.A.

How many have your name?

There seem to be some 379,493 Janes out there and some of are gathering in the Not A Plain Jane group on Ravelry. I think I'm the only one in the group with the "Plain Jane" handle which sort of negates the title of the group. Ah well, after so many years as a Jane and only meeting five or six in my lifetime, it's nice to see a whole lot of others who grew up with "Me Tarzan", "Jane Doe", and, yes, "Plain Jane" comments. {g} There are only 14 with both my first & last name in the whole country - one of them races huskies, but that's not me.

On the knitting front, the sweater has been shipped to my Grand-daughter and Grand-son's is on the needles though no photos yet. The rest of my knitting this week has been pretty bland - a "fashion" hat & scarf in a pale mauve chenille yarn, two hats in aran fleck to go with scarves I'd made earlier plus a couple washcloths knit while I was web surfing, not the stuff of exciting photo sessions.
