Can you believe it's a year since I published my first 'proper' pattern? So much has happened in that time, yet in another way it feels like just a few weeks since Charlotte was standing in the cold to model it for me. LBP marked the beginning of a new phase - the start of the transition from 'knitter who blogs' to 'blogger who designs' and as 2015 looms, I have several more patterns in the works, or awaiting publication. When I started a blog about learning to knit I didn't imagine I'd ever be a 'designer' but it seems to be something that's happening accidentally, along the way. Life is funny like that, isn't it?
As for Little Bear's Porridge, to date it has been downloaded over 4,000 times (!!) although there are only 13 projects on the Ravelry project page, including this which makes me want a coloured one:
I've seen a few 'in the wild' which aren't on listed on Raverly - if you've made it, I'd love to see how yours turned out and whether you adapted it. This is one of my favourites - it's knit in a lighter weight yarn and makes me want to make a blanket from the motif.
For the moment I don't have time to go back to LBP - I have a friend coming over today to get photographs for a brand new pattern. Something festive that you can knit up quickly! And another idea popped into my head on this morning's dog walk which I need to swatch. I'll keep you posted...
PS - something odd has happened to the formatting on my Patterns page, but you can still find links to my free and paid patterns there.
