So apparently...

So apparently motifs are popular! I've been amazed with all the attention my little pattern has been getting since it was posted a few days ago. In just three days it's been downloaded from Ravelry nearly 150 times! (I know it's not a staggering number, but for someone just starting out writing patterns, it's very exciting. Not to mentioned that I'm easily excited to begin with. ^_^) I want to send a big thank you to a fellow blogger who I only know as Before the Sun Goes Down, who featured the pattern on her blog "Would You Like Yarn With That?" yesterday. You can visit her blog here or by clicking on the blue button over to the right of the page under "Featured On". -------->

Also, I was very excited to see Ravelry user JillianJiggs post a picture of her finished product from the pattern! You can see it on the "Projects" tab of the pattern page. It's such a simple little thing, but it's always nice to see people take interest in your work and make it their own. (And I don't mind the least bit that the picture is blurry Jillian!)

I also want to talk a little bit about the idea of selling patterns through sites like Ravelry and Etsy, but that's probably a whole 'nother post's worth of thoughts, so I'll hold off for now. But once that thought process boils over, I'm sure you'll be hearing from me again!
