My current work in progress:

1. Hats!
2. Myriad stealth projects.


I’m just popping in to let you know that my website will be moving hosts. While this will (hopefully) be transparent to you the reader, it necessitates radio silence on my part for a few days. And if there are some outages, be of good cheer — the site will return.

So I will tell you quickly that I am knitting on Martina Behm’s brilliant pattern Pool & Conquer. I am using Wollmeise Lacegarn in the Franz colorway:

Loki, of course, helped me every step of the way.
