Preorders, & What I’m Writing

The pre order for my fall release, COLORS IN THE DARK, is now up on Amazon and on Gumroad. I'm still waiting on cover art, which is in progress, and I should have it back from copy edits this week, so it's moving into the final stages. As a reminder, Patreon members not only got… Continue reading Preorders, & What I’m Writing

Back in Black

It's been a while, hasn't it? But I did need that time off. I'm not sure I would have been able to meet any of my deadlines for July or August if I'd been concentrating on the blog, too. We moved the last weekend of July; not far, but if you saw my Twitter feed… Continue reading Back in Black

What Moving Taught Me About Chronic Illness

If you've seen my Twitter (@Knotmagick) in the last week, you've probably seen how fantastically bad our recent move went. It's become a running joke at this point that when we move, the hired help doesn't showed up (this is the 3rd move in a row). I don't want to get into all the ways… Continue reading What Moving Taught Me About Chronic Illness

Spewing Rainbows

Some of you might remember, way back in 2012, I knit this baby sweater for a coworker: Which I was absolutely in love with. I wanted to create the same effect in an adult size, but none of the yarns I looked at had a long enough color repeat to be more than rainbow colored… Continue reading Spewing Rainbows

Procraftinating

I told myself that I would take May completely off from all writing and publishing while I recover from my massive case of burnout. The problem is that writing is something that I genuinely love to do; it's been my hobby since I was in first grade. Telling myself to not write, like, at all,… Continue reading Procraftinating

Knitpicks Mighty Stitch yarn review

By now you probably all know about my undying love for Knitpicks. They are a great source for budget yarn that isn't 100% acrylic, and I love ordering basics from them--things like everyday sock yarn, solid colors, and yarns I need in larger quantities. Their Shine and Comfy lines are two of my top picks… Continue reading Knitpicks Mighty Stitch yarn review

They are coming, it just might be a little while before they become available. Because we will be moving at the end of July, I… Continue reading Magic in the Headlines Release Day!
