Appropriate precautions

Oh...oh no...the tentacles have gotten into the potions. There's no telling where this will lead. You may wish to take appropriate precautions. I'm not strictly sure what such precautions would be mind you. But I feel a certain level of concern is warranted. Our squirmy friends should make landfall next week. You know what to do if you want to hear when they arrive, and @littleskeinanne is working on something special, should you wish to welcome them into your home but not feel quite up to the task of sourcing the materials yourself. In the meantime, I think perhaps I'll [...]

Ok, let's walk through the differences on these (video version over on insta if you want to see me flop things about)! On the original Constellate, our little bit of fancy business is all stacked up nice and neat in columns and set against a ribbed background. And on the variation, that same little bit of fancy business is instead offset and set against a stockinette background.  The ribbed background on the original lends itself to a folded brim, and the stockinette background to a rolled brim. You can work either one with either one color straight through or with [...]

Constellate (bonus version)

If you've been here for any time at all, you know I'm bad at restraint. I prefer exuberance and exploration and experimentation. I adore having time to play around and see where my whims take me. Which is how we ended up with this hat! I took Constellate, and the gorgeous little stitch it uses, and said 'huh, I wonder what would happen if...' Before I knew it, I had a very different version of the hat in my hands. And, since my lovely patrons are the ones who make it possible for me to spend time exploring things like [...]

We've got a hurricane coming through this weekend, and while it will probably just be a bit of wind and rain by the time it gets to us, there's always the chance that it will do something more inconvenient like knock out our internet for a few days. Just a heads up in case I'm a little quiet for a day or two, but with any luck at all, it will be delightfully uneventful! In the meantime, you may assume I'll be playing with yard trash and cyanotype solution while I wait to see what the storm brings... Because I [...]

Bad at restraint

Did I mention about how I'm...not known for my restraint? Because there's sort of an accidental bonus version of this hat... Well, sort of. It's the same nifty fancy stitch as on Constellate, just offset and worked on stockinette instead of lined up in columns and worked on ribbing, and with a rolled brim instead of a folded brim. Because again, bad at restraint. And generally entranced by variations. That'll be going out on Patreon as a little bonus some time next week (you know, assuming this hurricane doesn't do anything nefarious to me/my house/my life this weekend). Because the [...]

I've heard rumblings from the deep. Mysterious rumblings. Possibly even portentous. I suspect something may be awakening down there. Someone should probably keep an eye on that. I'll check on this side of the sea, and I have a sneaking suspicion Little Skein Anne might be convinced to check on her side. I bet between us, we can manage the menace... Though should you wish to join the tentacle management team, we'd welcome the help. You never know when things will get out of hand.

Which one?

Ok important questions here folks…single color or contrast color, which one is your favorite? I mean yes, picking a favorite feels like a crime, so perhaps it’s better to say which one do you want to make first. Because really, doing just one may prove surprisingly difficult! The pattern is Constellate and it’s up in all the usual places. The matching mitts will be coming soon. And there might sort of accidentally be another version of the hat headed out to folks on that other place here in the very near future. And it looks like you folks bought up [...]

Constellate is out on both ravelry and payhip! But it really shouldn't be this pretty. It just shouldn't. Nothing this easy should look so impressive. Yet somehow, it does, and I find myself completely unwilling to argue with anything so delightful.⁠ Instead, I find myself inclined to play with it. So far that's meant experimenting with a two color version (which I love even more than the single color version, a feat I didn't think possible). Oh and being hopelessly entranced by the wrong side of the fabric (the wrong side on the two color version still leaves me wondering [...]
