I published my second pattern on Raverly today. Within the first 4 hours I had well over 100 downloads and couldn’t believe it.
I have never had much luck with patterns, finding that people really enjoy this makes me happy. Now that the pattern is live, I’m back to working on my other projects from the dreaded list.
Remember the pair of socks I decided to play yarn chicken with? Nearly a ball and a half for the first sock, and it is much bigger than I was expecting, as I had taken an inch off the ankle/calf length. So I’m positive 3 balls of yarn for the pair it will be. I managed to get the second sock started this evening. Would have been half done by now if my carpal tunnel would chill out, but I take that as a sign I’m pushing myself too much. So now I’m contemplating making a list of all my ufos and prioritizing them.
I cast on my dreambird shawl last night, but not anything more. My son has been begging for me to make him something, and patterns are hard to find for boys. Ended up hunting ravelry and found the playground shirt pattern. Cast that on earlier this afternoon taking a break from the socks.
Now it’s time to relax and finish the socks tomorrow.
