That thing? That thing where you’re kind of tired or overwhelmed or maybe just a little blue? And you want to knit because knitting makes you feel better? But you also know that you really need some rather mellow knitting because this is Just Not The Time for anything challenging? Yeah. That thing. I’ve been feeling that thing for quite some time now. And this? This is Proclivity, and it was just what I needed.
I’m not even going to pretend it’s hard. Or fancy. Or complicated. Because it’s none of those things.
Instead it’s very very very chill.
Now don’t get me wrong. It’s still lovely (I’m rally rather smitten with it if I do say so myself). And the fabric is delightfully reversible (seriously, I knit the thing and I still look at the pictures and go ‘how does it do that?!?’). And I think you’ll have a wonderful time both knitting and wearing it.
But it is absolutely not going to provide any extra dramatic tension in your life. Though to be fair, I don’t really particularly want any extra dramatic tension in my life right now thank you very much. I’ll take lovely and mellow and chill over dramatic any day of the week.
Oh, and just a little heads up, ravelry has had a bit of a facelift since I last brought out a pattern, so it may look a bit different if you haven’t been by recently. If you find you prefer the old version, you can switch back and forth by hovering over/tapping on your profile icon (in the upper right hand corner of any ravelry page) then selecting classic ravelry from the drop down menu.
ETA: Some folks are having trouble with the new ravelry site. I know ravelry is working on it, but in the meantime, if you’d prefer, the hat is also available on Lovecrafts. Lovecrafts doesn’t let me do things like offer sales or coupon codes. But hopefully this will be an alternative if you’re not using ravelry right now.
