Thank you all so very much for the hugely positive response to the release of my first animal patterns. The people closest to me know how nervous I was about putting them out there and worried that people might find them too fiddly or frustrating but it has been great to see projects start appearing on Ravelry and to read that people have been enjoying the patterns and are happy with what they have made. And I've had so many lovely messages and emails - thank you so much if yours was one of them and sorry I've not had the chance to reply to everyone yet. It really has been a wild week!
I was really touched when I read one message from a fellow Raveller who volunteered to set up a little cotton rabbit ravelry group. It's not something I would have had time to do myself but I will definitely be involved and I do hope you'll come along and join us. There will be knit-alongs, community knitting support, tips and general chat and I hope to share an occassional freebie and news of future patterns. We'd love to see you and your projects there!
Thanks again for making the release of my patterns such a pleasurable experience for me and for all of the kind and lovely messages. I'll be back next week with the promised post about fairisle knitting tips. Have a good weekend x
