one of our regulars at the shop (hi jane!) stopped by the other day to show me this smoke ring made from my pattern. colorwise, it is actually crisp bright red. what was really cool about this whole thing is seeing one of my patterns, knit by someone else who doesn’t know me, in person for the first time. although jane knows me and my stuff, she didn’t knit this. her cousin (who did not know that jane knows me) made it for her and gave it to her as a gift! how cool is that?!?
p.s. the free pattern links on the side work again – i had no idea they weren’t working! sorry about that.
