I made it!

I’ve been working on a new design since the fall. I’m proud of it and it’s recently gone through a pattern test on Ravelry so I’m very confident in the pattern’s technical details. I published it last night and it’s free until February 1st. The pattern is called Hexylic Socks because there are six columns of cables on the leg of the sock. It was neat to watch the number of downloads increase through the night and I was secretly hoping to make it into the Top 20 Hot Designs in Ravelry.

When I woke up this morning, my pattern had been “favorited” by 106 people and made the Top 20 list! Happy dancing ensued and I’m smiling! It’s not the first pattern I’ve released, but it’s the first sock pattern so there were many more details in the pattern to get accurate. I included two different sizes as well.

There is a Ravelry thread about designer moments, which I can’t find right now, but seeing my pattern in the Top 20 is such a good feeling.

Swirling Ridges Cowl Released

I wanted to share my latest design that I’ve published in Ravelry today.  It’s called the Swirling Ridges Cowl and is a lacy and lightweight accessory.  It’s got a very easy-to-remember pattern and the unique thing is that despite you thinking it’s going to run vertical, the design slants to the right.  Go figure!

I’ve found some yarn in my stash and am thinking about making another cowl but making it longer so I can wrap it around my neck.
