free pattern giveaway!!

hi everyone ^^/

there's been a slight change of plans since my last instalment a few days ago. i took a few days off from working on my Rowena sleeves to FINALLY do the tech editing for knock off that i've been meaning to do for some time now. if you follow my blog then you'll remember that i submitted the pattern for knock off to's Winter 09 issue. unfortunately, Knitty didn't have room for it in their Winter issue so i decided to self publish the pattern on Ravelry. 3 months later, the pattern is finally up for sale, and it's my first official pattern for sale on Ravelry or anywhere else. if you're interested in purchasing the pattern you can follow the link under the picture below, or the link in my "patterns for sale" section to the right.

knock off

so far this pattern is only for sale on Ravelry, but i've been thinking of opening up an Etsy shop to sell my patterns and various other FO's.

but if you aren't a member of Ravelry and you still really REALLY want this pattern never fear! it's time for...

  1. I found your blog via Ravelry ;) It looks like you are very creative! I would love to enter for your pattern giveaway, what a nice idea! Looking forward to following your knitting progress ;)

  2. Fun Idea, darlin'! I'll put a link to it on my blog too. :) I would love to see a pic of you wearing the pattern, too!

  3. Petite Vache! I got my yarn and beads and wire in the mail and I am so excited!! Thank you so much for the fancy french yarn! I'm thinking it'll make a great pair of fingerless gloves, or maybe a border on a scarf I'm thinking about. You are such a sweet heart and you've totally made my day! :D
