I've just noticed that I have published my 150th pattern this week, and that I have been publishing knitting patterns on Ravelry for 10 years!!
Before I started selling patterns I made knitted,felted bags and had a lovely time, making hundreds of bags and setting up my stand at craft fairs. After a few years I was persuaded it was time to publish the pattern to my most popular product- these little Teardrop pouches. For the first few years I only created patterns for felted bags and toys- then one day I had an email asking me to create a pattern for a felted bag for a magazine. They loved the design and encouraged me to spread my creative wings. I went on to design over 70 patterns for them and by the time to project ended I felt I had served my apprenticeship and was ready to carry on publishing my own creations.
These teardrop pouches were where were it all started..... 10 years ago!
and of course Billy and Bobbie-Jo are the 150th pattern I published this week.
