Holy crap: the Saturniid Cowl just passed a thousand favorites on Ravelry!
I am COMPLETELY blown away and was in no world expecting this kind of love for my first published pattern. Thank you to everyone who's encouraged me, taught me, and given me a chance as a first-time designer. You've all gotten me super excited to get on to the next one!
Speaking of. My first garment pattern, the Copperhead Tee, is approaching halfway through its test knitting. I'm learning a ton and can't wait for its release on September 3rd. I'm also about a thumb and a half from finishing my sample for a pair of snakey, scaley fingerless mitts. After that, I'll be tackling the reason I learned to design in the first place: reworking a Strange Brew pullover I'd knit with the Saturniid Cowl colorwork into a pattern of my own.
If any of these upcoming projects sound interesting to you, I'd love to have you test knit them for me: join my testing pool on Yarnpond for a heads up when they're available.
