See, I knew I should have faith in all of you. Or at least I should trust that you all also exist in bodies and aren't easily scandalized! Oh and I really did mean it when I said I'm making a stack of these. Little Skein Anne might have sent me a whole box of some absolutely delicious linen and silk yarn and I might be planning to turn most of it into...well...into care and comfort and compassion. Because that's a pretty neat thing to do with yarn if you ask me. Plus bonus points for how brioche looks nifty [...]

Oh...oh dear...I think they might be learning to work together. I fear they might be learning to knit. Which, ok fine. I suppose every organism finds a way to reproduce itself. If you want to do your part to increase the population of tentacles, the pattern is out and it's called Gripping (and if you want someone to put together all the various bits and pieces for them all in one tidy little package, Little Skein Anne has absolutely marvelous kits that do just that). But I do have some qualms about the knitting learning to knit. Because really, if [...]

Our Tentacled Overlords have made landfall. Please remain calm. Local authorities are aware of the situation and will update you as soon as more information is available. In the meantime, should you wish to knit a small tentacle of your own, either as a welcoming gesture to our new Overlords or as a ward against the grasping horror of the deep, I've got you covered. Gripping is out on both ravelry and payhip, and the code TENTACLE will take 15% off in either place through Friday (and of course, Rampant Nonsense patrons get the pattern for free as part of [...]

Polite Society

The wee swirly bit of business from a few days ago? Yeah, it was lovely to see everyone speculating on it, but now I fear I may disappoint you when you learn what it really is. I am knitting myself a pile of absolutely magnificent washcloths. And I'll be honest, my first inclination was to say absolutely nothing about the project. It somehow feels too...personal? private? intimate? to discuss online. I'm not quite sure actually, but it feels like the sort of thing that a respectable person should keep behind closed doors and not even hint at in polite society. [...]

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.

The indecisive

See, the problem is that brioche just always looks spiffy on both sides. It makes things hard for the indecisive among us (me, I am the indecisive among us and am completely unable to pick a favorite side). There's also that thing where you can make tiny changes and it'll look wildly different, and that other thing where brioche feels super fast when it's on the needles, and that other other thing where these are tiny. All of which means I might be about to knit, um, several. We'll go with several. Several vague enough to remain accurate, no matter [...]
