I finally settled on a name for my fiber based identity, Dancing Starlight. Unfortunately, I had used up all of my "change your name" chances on Ravelry, so I asked the powers-that-be there to change my user name for me. They said it would take a couple of weeks. I waited over a month, to no avail, so I went ahead and created another Ravelry account with the name I wanted.
It will take time to fix everything to reflect my new name, but it will work out eventually.
To all of my friends on Ravelry who are wondering what the heck happened, I'm sorry for the confusion.
