Tiny Nonsense

Encouragement

So look, I fully acknowledge that I cannot make you do anything. I'm pretty sure I wouldn't want to even if I could. But I can maybe encourage you to block your knits by showing you what my knits look like before and after blocking. One picture shows this fresh off the needles, the other after the laziest of lazy blocks. I quite literally left it in the sink for a while (mostly because I forgot it was in there, if I'd wanted to be faster I'd have just squeezed it a few times under water to make sure it was [...]

Gleaming

Ready to start folding? The star book is out now, and you can totally have a window full of these by sunset! Patreon folks at the Utter or Rampant Nonsense tiers, go check your inbox, it's there waiting for you. Anyone else who suddenly finds themselves overcome with the urge to ward off the gloom of 4pm sunsets with nothing more than pretty paper and stubbornness, wander over here and we'll see what we can do! You'll find info about and links to the paper and other supplies I used to make mine there too. The star book is exclusive [...]

I haven’t forgotten!

Don't worry, I haven't forgotten about knitting! These three hats are all set to come out early next year (am I in an embroidery phase, yes, yes I apparently am). And then there's something else that's somewhere between a hat and a magic trick that's been quietly percolating in the back of my mind for a while now that I can't wait to start sharing with you just as soon as I feel brave enough to tackle it in public. Oh and I might accidentally have ordered, um, a skein or two of yarn over the weekend that might be [...]

Restraint

And here's the sixth star (you can see the other five if you scroll back through my posts a bit, they're kinda glowy and hard to miss)!⁠ ⁠ The star book is all set to go out Wednesday! It's got everything you need to know to make the stars (info on the materials and how you fold them and put them together and hang them), plus fold by fold directions for the stars I've posted so far and the two bonus ones that are going in there because we hit our patreon goal!⁠ You know how this works, if you [...]

Flipped a switch

I've really had more fun with these than I should admit. No seriously, somehow making the book of them as a patreon perk flipped a switch in my brain. They're no longer labeled 'scandalous waste of time, you should be working, stop being a massive slacker and go do something productive.' Instead, they're now labeled 'totally legit use of your time, officially counts as work, spend as much time on them as you like.' And yet, somehow, despite the change of label from recreation to work, they're still tremendous fun. This is actually kind of what I'd hoped setting up [...]

All set!

The star book is all set and will be out at the very end of this month! Patrons at any of the tiers where I send you stuff (so that's the Utter, Rampant, or Complete Nonsense tiers) will get the book when it comes out. And anyone who is a member at any of those tiers at any point between when the book comes out and the end of January, 2023 will be able to download it for free as part of their membership. (It may be available for sale later, but it will only be available on patreon through [...]

Assembly

Wanna see how these go together? There's a neat little trick to it... If I were cooler, I'd figure out how to get a video out of instagram and up over here, but we all know I am not that cool. So instead I will have to just sort of point you at it and gesture broadly and say 'it's over there, help yourself.' This is one of the extra fancy stars that I'll be adding to the star book because we hit our  patreon goal! The star book will be out November 30, and anyone on the Utter, Rampant, [...]

A Brief Return

I'll keep this short & sweet (you know, by my standards, I do get wordy):⁠ Discontinued patterns are back — They're on ravelry and payhip. There are a few that aren't back (if you don't see a way to buy something, it's not a mistake, it's just one of the ones that didn't come back for this), but most are!⁠ They're only here for a few days — Officially, from Wednesday November 23 through Friday November 25, but really from right now until I sit down at my desk Saturday morning and take them down (on the theory that no [...]

The Plan

Ok, so I have a plan. But because it's me, and because I over explain basically everything, I want to spell out all the details. We'll start short for anyone who wants the quick version, but there are more details below!   Short version • Many of my discontinued books and patterns will be available on ravelry and payhip Wednesday-Friday this week. They'll go away again after the sale. • They'll be in their original format (the way they were when I took them down this summer). • Individual patterns will be $7 (usually $10), books $17 (usually $19.95-$21.95). • [...]
