I am totally amazed at the response I’ve seen after posting my Leftovers Cowl pattern on Ravelry. You just never know what is going to strike a chord with a lot of people and it looks like this one has struck a chord with a number of people!
A very big thank you to everyone who has purchased a copy, favorited it, queued it, pinned it, posted about it, and started knitting it. I am so looking forward to seeing your projects as you knit them. There are countless things a knitter can do to make this pattern his/her own, and it is going to be so much fun to see the varieties of colors and mods you guys dream up.
I’m going to keep the discount price for another day — I’ve edited it on the pattern page in Ravelry, so if you wanted the pattern but did not see it until now, you have another 24 hours (til noon Monday, February 24) to get it for $3.00 — 40% off the regular price.
Since completing the cowl a week ago, I have been fiddling with a new design that’s given me fits — not the design itself but the yarn I was using. I have just restarted it for the third time and hopefully the third time is the charm. More on that in the next blog post.
But I also finished these:
Fingerless mitts with a dragon motif. I drew the dragon chart myself so I am pleased to see that it actually resembles a dragon, once knit.
The pair took two 50-gram skeins of fingering weight wool: one skein each of Shibui Knits Sock, a fingering weight 100% superwash merino wool, in the Abyss, and Roppongi colorways.
I need to finalize the pattern and send it for tech editing, but it will soon be available for sale.
Now I shall go spend some quality time with Loki, who is waiting patiently.
