Since I last wrote about my latest efforts in the field of knitting cryptology, I actually finished clue 1 of my Call of the Siren shawl! It was about that time I noticed a problem There’s a pretty noticeable color shift about one and a half pattern repeats before the end of the section. Maybe… Continue reading Sirens to the Frog Pond
Voila!* The latest in the cryptid knitalong series – Call of the Siren – has arrived! Last Friday the adventure began with the first clue.

So instead of telling you even more about the things I am continuing… Continue reading Coming Attractions!
