Changeful

You know how, when you’re knitting, there’s always a little voice saying ‘you know, you could also try it this way…?’  But you never get to really indulge that voice because if you did, you’d never actually finish anything?  Well, Changeful are my attempt at indulging that inner voice!

Changeful was initially available only as a little goody for folks who preordered Fine Things, but now it’s out and available to everyone!  If you, too, like the idea of playing with some variations on a theme, you can use the code INDECISIVE to get a dollar off the price through the end of the day Friday.
