About ten years ago, thanks to EVE Online, Mat and I met and became friends. Our first face-to-face meeting took place a short while later in Iceland at EVE Online’s Fanfest celebration. Since then, we’ve grown to be the best of friends—and in the last several years, even closer than that. So today, it’s with…

On June 28, 2020, the site was rebranded as aka Iron Dragon. Read the announcement. I originally announced my new yarn venture at the end of May. Now it’s September! Time has really flown by. I’ve been working on my yarn and some folks have been asking when the store will be open, so I…

Today, CCP announced it will be acquired by Pearl Abyss—the makers of Black Desert Online. I find the announcement both interesting and amusing, for a couple of reasons: First, despite CCP saying they will continue to operate “independently”, common sense says if the mothership decides that it’s in its best interests to meddle in the…

On June 28, 2020, the site was rebranded as aka Iron Dragon. Read the announcement. I have a lot of interests: gaming, writing, art, reading, photography…lots of stuff. On Incyanity I explore them all, and recently it’s been pretty obvious that crochet has been at the top of my list. Crochet is a hobby I…

The other day my muse woke up a little and hit me with a strong desire to update the Heart of the Empire Music article, so I did. The list has gone from twenty to thirty songs and I created a proper playlist too! The ten new additions had been rattling around in my head…

In August of 2016 I wrote Beginner Crochet: Ten Tips I Wish Tutorials Had Taught Me after I felt I had more or less progressed beyond the very baseline learning phase of the hobby. Since then I’ve been working on improving my existing skills as well trying new things and have picked up another ten…

Gaming! Yes, I’m still finding time for it. Actually, I’d like to think I might have found more time to game recently than in the last few years. The pull of single-player games has become fairly strong lately and I expect I’ll continue to look at those kinds of titles going forward rather than continuing…

Disappointments. They happen. Some are minor, like a recipe that didn’t turn out the way you expected, while others seem to drag on forever, like that time you excitedly bought brand new kitchen appliances for the first time in your life only to end up going a month without a fridge because Best Buy couldn’t…

Anybody remember this guy? My very adorable crochet elephant, my first proper amigurumi project that wasn’t for practice, that had no mistakes… I made him in the spring of 2016, not long after I started learning to crochet. I adore that elephant and have been very proud of it. It’s small! It’s cute! It’s huggable!…

In my entry called Beginner Crochet: Ten Tips I Wish Tutorials Had Taught Me, I said: Make it a rule for yourself that you’re not allowed to get more yarn if the basket is full. At the time, I’d just purchased a fairly large wicker basket to stash my yarn in. I had more yarn…
