So I hated my pants

So a year or so ago I realized I had a bunch of sensory issues What can I say, my brain is weird, I have sensory issues with lots of things. But the more I realize 'oh hey, that's a sensory thing, I can mitigate that,' the better my life gets (no really, so many of the things that got called 'anxiety' suddenly went away when I realized 'oh, hey, that scratchy shirt tag/those flickering lights/that buzzing noise is sucking all my will to live and tolerating it is requiring all my focus and attention and energy). So I [...]

Train your eye

It's become clear that some of y'all can't tell the difference between twisted and untwisted stitches (which is fine, no one is born knowing that, we all have to learn it somewhere!). And before we can talk more about the nifty decrease thing, you've got to to have a good handle on that. So let's take a look! Because you can train your eye to see them, and once you do, you'll understand what's going on with your fabric so much better. (There's a video of this over here, it's on a public post so anyone can see it.) Look [...]

Now all we need is a cloudy day and some good beach rocks for some proper photos.⁠ ⁠ This will likely be going up for testing over where that normally happens here in the next couple of hours (I do testing calls on patreon, they're on public posts, anyone can see them and comment on them, you don't have to be following me there to test, it's just the easiest place for me to organize tests these days). You know, in case you need a collection (a prickle? a squirm? a bubble? what the heck is the collective noun?) of [...]

More than one

Could I stop myself with just one beaded version? No. No I could not. Is even one single solitary one of you surprised? I assume the answer here is also a resounding no.⁠ And yes, there will be a pattern. Likely not till closer to the end of summer though, because early summer patterns never get the attention they deserve, and it would be a shame for something so cute not to get as much attention as possible!

I have it on good authority that the stars may align here shortly and I might be able to get pics of these with, you know, feet in them. At which point they will stop being free will instead be for sale like a regular pattern.⁠ You know...just in case you wanted to do anything with that information while they were still hanging out there where anyone can just have them.

Magic trick

Either you already know this, or you're going to be mad no one told you sooner. You know how there are a bunch of different directions for left- and right-leaning decreases, and twisted left- and right-leaning decreases, and left- and right-leaning decreases on the wrong side, and twisted left- and right-leaning decreases on the wrong side? And how it's hard to keep them all straight? And how they're different if you mount your stitches differently? Yeah. You don't ever ever ever need to think of them again. You just need to know one thing: Whichever stitch your needle goes into [...]

You know you want it. I know you want it. Everyone wants to grab one of these and go ‘pinch pinch pinch’ and listen to the clasp go ‘thunk thunk thunk.’ Don’t worry, it’s perfectly normal. Everyone feels that way sometimes. If you wish to indulge this base desire, the pattern is called Clasped and you can be thunk thunk thunking away in a day or two. Or you can continue on in noble self restraint and deny yourself the unspeakable satisfaction of a good thunk. I’ll be over here thunking.

I told you there would be further dalliances. These things happen. At least to me. When left unattended. Around soft things. And shiny things. And stabby things.⁠ Really this is a failure of supervision more than anything else and can hardly be held accountable for that.
