I'm officially a designer

Put my first design on Ravelry a few days ago and actually sold 2! The mitts are free and quite a few people downloaded them, but two people actually bought the hat! Woo hoo!

Wow! I sent one of my first patterns to a test knitter and I would say my grade was a D-! The pattern wasn't even good enough to start knitting. I really appreciate the time the person spent to be so critical and I learned a lot from the review. But...OUCH! Big lesson learned about what I put out there!

A New Start

I think I will give this knitwear design Thing a go! I'm a little obsessed with it actually. Every image I see is transformed to a garment of some sort in my mind. I'm starting to get test knitters now and am working on a number of items at once. I'm really interested in color, baby clothes, and hats. My gauge is pretty variable, so I'm having a little bit of a tough time. I'll keep you posted!
