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 [...]

Better in sets

Better in sets better in sets better in sets. I'm just always going to believe that knitted accessories are better in sets. Now, do I actually manage to wear all the pieces of a set at the same time? Um...sometimes? Occasionally? Ideally? But look, just knowing I have the option makes me happy. I do usually spend the winter with a hat jammed in one pocket of my coat and some mitts jammed in the other pocket, does that count? As soon as we manage to get a day where it is both overcast but not rainy and cool enough [...]

Spooky Knits Season

Miss Fizzy would like me to remind you we are now firmly in spooky knits season, and that she has you covered, should you have a black cat you'd like to irritate by attempting to make them wear a hat.⁠ Bonus shot of her two years when she was just a few months old and freshly introduced to the indignity of being a cat in a knitter's household, just in case you needed an aching reminder of the inexorable march of time. The hat is called Ensorcellment, though I can't in good conscience recommend inflicting it on unsuspecting critters.
