Deed is Done

In knitting, portfolio on February 21, 2016 at 6:34 pm

With much apprehension and anxieties, I have done it.

Almost a decade being known as pinkcashmere1980 has ended (3.13.2009-2.21.2016).

From hence forthwith I am known as knitterlyhooker on Ravelry.

Not sure what the future holds, but I’m shooting for magnitude and perhaps this is the beginning.


Ravelry Usernames

In designing, knitting on February 16, 2016 at 9:02 pm

Usernames are inherently a representation of us in the cyberworld and create a decided story about who you are even before any interaction.  I can’t say that I’ve been very good at developing usernames, and I think it’s so necessary now, particularly with branding oneself.

After being PinkCashmere1980 for so many years on Ravelry, I’m considering changing it.  It was only a few days ago in a Ravelry group chat, I actually explained the meaning behind my username here.  I discovered that there is actually a way to do it (you only have 3 shots) and I’m thinking about making that transition to theknitterlyhooker.

I feel like it’s super weird, but may be a necessary move. What do you think?  Is Ravelry actually a part of my branding, promotion opportunity? I guess when I begin designing  or whatever else I please, it might be right?

If you had the opportunity to change your Ravelry username would you??
