surname-sake

This is nothing to do with Ukrainian music, or Ukrainian anything for that matter. Well, maybe marginally.

I just came across a blog called Knit like a man by some guy sporting my maiden name. The blogger lives in Toronto but is originally from Winnipeg.

No relation far as I know, but, you never know how far back these connections go.

Quite by accident ... through a client, actually ... a few years ago I found a 3rd cousin here in Vancouver by that same name (we figured out we have the same great-great grandfather). My newfound relative had in his possession a copy of an unpublished family manuscript written by my great-uncle years ago, which he very kindly shared with me.

Funny how these things happen.

So anyway if you're into knitting, check out his blog. H/T to Inside the CBC
