Dipping My Toe in the Pond

 Those of you who have read my blog for a while know that I have basically designed several sweaters...I've never been afraid to change a pattern but our daughter pushed me into new realms with her ideas.  So, I created for her and for me and for others - these are a few of the things I've done but never written down.

Then one day I wrote down a pattern (Saphira Scarf) and put it on Ravelry as a free pattern and did nothing more.  This was simple but I loved it and wanted to share it.

The other day I tried to figure out how to add more patterns and had to fix my Ravelry Designer Name so it linked with my Ravelry ID.  Now they are linked and when you go on my info page you see I have a design page.  Watch this space...I just designed a baby sweater and after having it read through by a few savvy people, you'll find it on my new designer page.

I'm working on changing my one (soon to be 2 patterns) to a downloadable PDF.  Who knows what's next...I need to figure out if what I design is something salable.  Time will tell.  You can tell me too!
