My name is Marilyn - at a couple boards I am MarilynL (last name starts with L - I know, so creative!!)

My nickname is Mirl; has been since I was 5 or 6 yrs old. I don't think DH even knows how to spell Marilyn. I was born in 1956 - hence Mirl56.

Mirl56 at Ravelry, too.

Mine is pretty explanatory.. although I used to use (on other sites) medassistgal or medassistteach because I am a medical assistant and until 1 month ago, I taught medical assisting (quit job to be SAHM and to RELOCATE). Basically, I wanted to have a screen name that reflected knitting on a knitting site.. but knitgirl was taken, so I tried KnitPurlGurl and it was available. So I have used it everywhere every since.

I became Cricket at a Girl Guide camp. I was about 13 and despretly wanted a nick name, like some of the other girls.

We were at a Regional Park, one that we could camp at. There were other Scouts there that weekend, and we kept happening upon this one particular group of boys.
One of them had blue lips (he was eating blue candy...*smiles*) So I was razzing him every time we happened to cross paths. the end of the day...his leader was saying "ooooo Corkys got a girlfriend" tauntingly every time I walk by.

I don't know how many of you remember the talking dolls of the 80's, but there was a Doll that came out by the name of Cricket, and later followed with her brother Corky. So...he was Corky, I ended up with Cricket.

I slowly ended up adapting to Crycket when I found it was rather hard to get the C-R-I-C-K-E-T spelling. Seeing as my real name is Crysta, it only seemed to fit that I take it on as that spelling anyway.

Hey Everyone!

What a fun thread!

"Ladylou" comes from in part a nickname and in part my horse's name When we bought my horse her registered name was "PF Snow Chex". Well, I didnt like it very much but you cant change it officially. So we just named her for at home, "Chloe Lou". We thought it was cute and it matches her sassy personality The "lady" prefix from from my nickname at school of being "lady barbie" (which is a really, really long story. My best friend came up with it, despite my complaints. It was something about me being blonde and 6 foot, and being hit by a parked car once. Yeah, it really happened ).

And so... Ladylou was born!

I'm ladylou on Ravelry as well

Mine's obvious...

My 10 year old plays pop warner football... in our town the pop warner league is the "Little Huskies" since the high school football team is The Huskies....

next fall my 7 year old may be joining the football teams as well... so i shortened Little to Lil.... and I'm their mom..

So Little Huskies Football Mom

Years ago I dated a fellow who loved horse racing in L.A. While we were dating there was some poor old nag named Wanda Witch he would always bet on whatever track she was running. Well, I doubt if Wanda Witch ever got out of the starting gate, never mind win. I guess that is why he never proposed to me - a loser, no, but friends and I have had fun with it over the years. Plus, I had (still do by the bottle) black hair and even my DH of almost 45 years calls the broom my vehicle!!
