The husband informed me this morning, as I was scooping out the cat's litter box, that he just now "got" the title of my blog. And then told me that I'm pretty clever.

My response was, why would I start a blog unless I had a really witty name for it?

For time-capsule purposes, here's the low-down. It works on multiple levels.

1. Knitterly play on the title of the Vincent van Gogh painting.

2. I'm an astronomer and astronomy teacher by trade. Hence, stars.

3. My favorite hobby (tied with reading) is knitting.

This also made me stop and realize that I've been using this as my knitting-world handle for more than three years, which is pretty cool. In related news, I've been stalking this shop for a very long time. I tend to vastly prefer spinning fiber as combed top rather than carded batts, but click on her sold items and behold the things of beauty that she makes!

Now that I have some (albeit still limited) fiber budget again, I got these:

Moonrover Batts!!

Yay more stash!
