I also knew the quote (it was floating around Facebook this week), and I'm absolutely sure I know which sister is your "easy-to-be-annoyed-by" sister today! :)

Your knitting is absolutely, totally, art!

Oh my goodness...YES! to Trixie Beldon books. I read them all and I believe they are still in my mom's attic. You are the first person I've ever come across who has read them. I loved her so much more than Nancy Drew!
