Reasonable and Normal

Nope. I’m fine. I’m not completely undone by something so achingly simple that it should amuse no one, least of all me. Nope. Not at ALL. Totally in control of myself and liking this only the reasonable and normal amount. Nothing to see here.⁠



[Begin Suuuuuuuper Seeeeeeeeecret transmission for those of you who actually read the caption…though to be fair, it’s the same as yesterday’s, so if you read it then, you’re officially excused and can go get on with your Friday (I hope there’s some lemonade in there somewhere)]⁠

So, later this summer, as part of the new business name/shiny spiffy patreon thing, I’m taking down *MOST* of my existing patterns. A handful will come back under the new setup, but most will be gone for good. ⁠

I will do a bunch of posts about it later this summer as I get ready to take stuff down. And I’ll do a public sale for a bit before anything goes away for good.⁠

But I want to do a pre sale with a bigger discount just for mailing list folks before I start talking about all the details publicly. So if you’re on the mailing list, keep an eye out for a message from me next week.*⁠

It will have the biggest discount I’m going to offer at any point during this process. The only way to get it will be to be on the mailing list when the email about the sale goes out, I won’t be sharing this one publicly. ⁠

If you’re not on there already and want to be, you can go here and fill out the little form to sign up. ⁠

*Not sure when yet, precise dates are complicated these days, you never know when some horrible news thing is going to happen and make it so you really can’t talk about knitting patterns for a bit, but next week is the plan assuming the/my world doesn’t end between now and then!⁠

[End Suuuuuuuper Seeeeeeeeecret transmission, but I meant it about that lemonade thing, especially if you can work out some sort of strawberry lemonade situation]⁠

Doodle

Yup. Yup I like where this is going. I like it rather a lot. I seem to like basically anything that lets me doodle on my yarn. One of these days I’m going to just buy some markers and…have an incident. But for now, for now we do it with yarn.⁠

Mercurial

Yes, I do realize the unspeakable absurdity of complaining about stockinette yesterday and then showing you a picture of…wait for it…yet more stockinette (now with three tiny lines of also stockinette just in a slightly different color).

It will only get worse when I admit that I am rather enjoying what’s happening here. Or rather, what’s about to happen here. Because this is just about to do something that will delight me beyond all reason.

I am nothing if not mercurial.

Now if you’ll excuse me, I need make this…do a thing.

Enamored

I remain unspeakably enamored with the whole turned hem thing.

I mean, it’s not enough to make me forego my longstanding feud with stockinette (why, why is a fabric that’s so pretty to look at and so practical in projects so dead ass boring to knit? Does it not realize that this leaves me susceptible to distraction from literally any passing diversion? I’ve gotten distracted from stockinette by a falling leaf and then had to wander off and sit with the trees for a bit for some much needed stimulation. Yes it’s noisy in my head, why do you ask?). But it does feel lovely and calm and soothing and practical in a way that pleases me deeply.

I think…I think one of these days I’m going to have to see what happens if you do it with some basic cables. That will for sure go well and not at all result in swearing and flinging of swatches into the time out bucket.

But that is for another day. Today, today we embrace the stockinette. Possibly with an audiobook in the background so the I have a chance of sitting still long enough to make some progress.
