It's a foggy day here at my new place! Today I'm working on another one of these!

About

fantasticmio in a nutshell (emphasis on the nut)

I'm completely obessed with yarn crafting in general, and crochet in particular. There are three maneuvers used in crochet: yarn over, pull through, and insert hook. It's that last one that tends to trip people up in the beginning: *where* do I insert the hook? Once you get the hang of it, though, you learn that you can literally insert the hook anywhere you want - under both loops, under one loop, around the post, in the next stitch, in the previous stitch, in the next stitch after you skip one or more other stitches, in a stitch on a different row completely, into a space, into a different fabric, into a piece of paper, around a stick - I could go on for days, really. And I want to try them all.

I love to play with existing techniques. "Do Jacob's Ladders *have* to be straight?" was the question that kicked off my JL obsession back in 2012. "Do the squares all have to be the same size for continuous join-as-you-go to work?" ended up kicking off my All Squared Away series of patterns in 2013. "What if you threw in an edging in the middle of making a granny square blanket rather than just at the end?" kicked off my Eventually Granny Square series that started in 2014.

Sometimes I end up inventing something new, which just blew me away the first time it happened. My desire for taller stitches that weren't so... floppy, has snowballed into a technique I call "Oddly Linked", and led to a special way of inserting the hook to get a really interesting look. (See? Infinite ways to insert the hook!) This is shaping up to be the technique that will show up in my patterns in the last half of 2015, while finished items using the technique can already be found in the Winter Wear section of my shop with the "Snow and Sky" and "Ross" hats and scarves.

In the coming months, I hope to add more finished items that use patterns of mine that didn't or couldn't end up being actual patterns for sale. You can see the start of that with the "Weird Wearables" section.

In the mean time, you can check out my Pattern Samples section to find items that I made as samples for my patterns. They are high quality, one of a kind items, made by an expert, and sold at a discount.
