Ahem. You can absolutely work the fancy bit with a contrast color. Just in case that's something you might ever find yourself wanting to do. This is a swatch for the new version of Constellate that should be out late this summer. You'll be seeing more of it as we [...]
May's housekeeping post is up! Wander over that way to see what's coming next and for the best non-chocolate cookies I know how to make (some sort of gingersnap hybrid but with more ginger and less snap because I'm sorry but crispy cookies are an abomination).
Ahem. Yes please. I told you it would work out! That's the yarn from the last post swatched up to make a new version of Constellate. And oh, oh this is going to work out well. Very well indeed.

Expound is out on both ravelry and payhip! It's a perfect way to turn little bits of leftover yarn into something absolutely magical, and it's 15% off with the code STITCHED for the first few days it's out. Look, no one is more surprised than me. But it turns out, [...]
For those of you concerned that things have been too staid, too practical, too sensible of late? Fear not. The uncharacteristic stretch of respectable propriety is coming quickly to an end. I'm fairly certain not one single one of you will find a pile of knit tentacles to be in [...]
