As much as I really love grays with black (I am wearing 7 articles of gray and black clothing as we speak), I felt like the photos were looking a little sad. This week's stripe makes fine use of most of the Phoenix colorway, still available in the shop:
I had a lot of options here. I might have continued the center section stripe out to the tips, which would have made the black and cream stripes stand out more, or done different stripes at the tips rather than carrying them across, or done the tips solid, get the picture! I'm very pleased with this square. I sketched out the basic idea quite a few weeks ago and it was fun to finally get to work it. More like this in my future, I think.

It will make spectacular Space Bacon, I think, joined along the edges. Any and all of these stripes will be really exciting as joined pieces.
