About me


Hi, I‘m Aubrey, a knitter and front-end developer living in the Boston area. I currently work with Vue.js at my day job, creating components and developing a design system for my company, and at home, I tinker with this blog and occasionally contribute to Drupal.

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.

I love CHRISTMAS, sushi, the ocean, glitter, Harry Potter, the Mistborn series, bright colors, chocolate, IPAs / sours / 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 18 years. This blog has been powered by Blogger, Greymatter, b2, Moveable Type, Drupal, Jekyll, and Wordpress, and is currently powered by Gatsby because hey, I should learn React at some point!

Thanks for reading!
