It's fitting that Jared Flood announced his new yarn, Loft, the day after Halloween, because the man obviously never sleeps. Have you seen how much he's accomplished? Do you think he's cloned himself like Calvin did with his Duplicator?

I also decided to write a few little articles on color theory (hey, why waste that fine arts' education, right?). Check out the first one, Color Theory Basics: Part I.
Here are a few of the fair isle charts I was playing with. A new palette changes everything:Read More >>
