They are ready!
Over the last few weeks I've been completely immersed in writing up these patterns, knitting test bits, scribbling and crossing out notes all of which my brain has found a bit taxing as it is out of practice in thinking in such detail! Now I feel a little like a mole who has just tunnelled through the last few inches of earth and emerged out into a bright sunny day and I'm feeling a bit disoriented. Still, a few weeks of gentle paced knitting and low brain activity should sort me out and then I should be ready to tackle another couple of patterns. Though I will also be writing some 'knitting tips' posts over the coming weeks as there were lots of tips for things like fairisle knitting that were too wordy to go into the patterns.
Anyway, the first two patterns (a boy bunny with a piebald patch and a bunny girl with a dotty dress) are done and ready to share. I've listed them on both Ravelry and Etsy as instant downloads which are available directly after payment - no hanging around waiting for me to email files. I've linked to them from my pattern page too.
Things have been a bit crazy here over the last week too. Building work started on the garden room and it's been exciting to see it starting to take shape. We now have a floor and the start of walls, though it's been all swathed in tarpaulin over the weekend against the wind and rain.
Toby has loved exploring and been crawling in through a wall space to sit inside. He is going to have such fun out there when it is done. I'll tell you more about it all when it's finished.
Well, I'm off to knit and rest my brain. Have a good week where you are and thanks for all of the encouragement and support for my pattern writing. I just hope that everyone enjoys using the patterns and is pleased with what they make from them. See you soon x
