I've designed a lot of patterns over the years, sold quite a few, too. Then, my day job and life got in the way and printing and mailing patterns to knitters became difficult. There weren't enough hours in the day. Now, with the ability to download patterns rather than waiting for the postman to bring them, I am preparing my patterns to put them up on Ravelry and Patternfish. There are already some available (even a couple of freebies!) and I will be adding more as they are ready.
My goal is to have consistency, so I'll be putting all the patterns under the Rhythm of the Needles name and using the great artwork that Dennis did for me. I'm also hoping to add more photos.
The one that I'm getting ready now is the Leftovers Sweater. It's a design using up your ends of sock yarns, highlighted by bars of a complimentary color to "pull it all together", taking away from a scrappy look. The finished sizes range from 37" to 57". If you've ever made this sweater, I'd love to see a picture, and if you'll allow me, I'd like to post it.
My plan is to have the Leftovers pattern available on Ravelry by the end of the month.
