I have not finished writing the pattern/tutorial for Stripes! yet. Part of this is because I have been absolutely crushingly busy since getting back from the conference, but the other part is this: I have no idea what I'm doing. Well, that's not entirely true.

And also completely and utterly voiceless, which is rather inconvenient given that I've got a review session to be running in a few hours. Thankfully, two of my awesome friends have offered to help me… Continue reading more stripes!
Thanks for all of your lovely comments on my last post! This is a rare mid-week post from me, I know, but I just did not want to wait until the weekend to share the newest thing I've cast on for. Basically, I ignored all y'all's suggestions, and cast-on for something that wasn't even on… Continue reading stripes!
