This Feeling Right Now

I have published a pattern on Ravelry. I've never known or had the courage to take my skills and talent to where I wanted. I never believed that it was possible for me to do what I want. I always settled for what made sense and what was immediately tangible. This moment right now, I feel scared and invincible while typing through tears.

I sat in the movie theater with my muse, watching Bohemian Rhapsody, when the logo popped into my head. I hurriedly scribbled it into my phone and as soon as I got settled at home, I came up with this logo. as the first draft.

I knew I wanted to something with this, but I didn't know what exactly. I didn't know if I wanted to sell the items I created or sell the patterns or what. Then I remembered how hundreds of knitters and I would see an amazing item online and all but swarm the designer for the pattern. We would collectively be crushed when they would refuse to sell the pattern, preferring to sell the items only. Most of us have our own yarn preferences and ideas for customization. So it made sense FOR ME to produce something and move along that line. I have no less than 10 designs at various levels of completion and sketches of about 10 more. I feel like 9 volt battery. 

I can't wait to share it all with you. ✌

Thank you!!

We Have Hopes and Plans

  I don't know how I made it to 2023, but look at me- still alive and confused. I am sitting here surrounded by yarn and Christmas decor...
