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 [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

Tacit & Implicit

The Tacit & Implicit set is out on both ravelry and payhip, and you can use the code INTIMATED to take 15% off the set for the first few days they're out (as always, mailing list folks and patreon folks should check their email, they've got something waiting for them there).  Or, if you already have Tacit and now want the set, make sure you have the updated version of Tacit (it went out yesterday, August 28), and use the code in it to deduct the price of the mitts from the price of the set. Details of that are [...]

Pssst, today (Friday) is the last day to use the code ZIGZAG for a little discount on Tacit! I'm also working on something nifty for folks who have the mitts and want the matching hat pattern (which should be coming out later this month), so you might wanna grab them now if that's you.⁠ Because we all know half the point of being a knitter is having really cute matching winter accessory sets. You just can't find stuff that cute in stores. That's my story and I'm sticking to it. ⁠

You’ve got options

Ok, let's talk about yarn for these. Because you've got options! I went with a fingering-weight single ply yarn (astrid from Seven Sisters Arts) held double with a bit of floofy mohair laceweight (abigail from HauteKnitYarn). I did that both because it's a gorgeous combo (and every bit as traffic cone bright in real life, seriously, it glows) and because I wanted to work at a fairly loose gauge. The mohair does a marvelous job of bulking up whatever it's held alongside, which lets you work at a loser gauge (fewer stitches per inch) but still get a solid feeling [...]

Tacit is back! It's out in all the usual places (ravelry, payhip), and you can use the code ZIGZAG for a little something off for the first few days it's out. But before you use that, go check your email. If you had an earlier version of this pattern (and it was by far my best selling mitt pattern, so I know a bunch of you do...), you'll have the new one there waiting for you. Rampant Nonsense patrons will find it in their inboxes too. And of course anyone else who lets me send them email when stuff comes [...]

Evolve is out! This is the pattern I found, in an astonishingly complete state, when I settled down to tidy up my hard drive the other day. ⁠ Since it was nice little surprise for me, I figured I should pass that happy feeling on to other folks as well. So if you're one of those people who lets me send you email (either mailing list or patreon), go check your inbox, there's something waiting for you there! ⁠ Patreon folks at any level (yes, including the one that's three bucks) got the pattern for free (and yes, if you [...]
