Lovin the Craftsy Platform!

I don’t know about you but I have become a Craftsy addict! I love their set up and there are so many classes to choose from! One of the classes I joined was Designing your own Lace Shawl taught by Miriam Felton.  I thought the class was phenomenal and was inspired to create a shawl that I call Against the Current.

I plan on publishing this pattern and already have all the charts made up. Just need to write up the pattern. Oh, did I mention they have a class for writing a pattern? It is called How to Say It taught by Edie Eckman. It can be monotonous but is full of useful info if you are planning on writing up patterns. Here is the first pattern I am writing up. I am calling it the Forest Habitat Cowl and it is based on a cowl I knit for my Mom last year. I mad a few changes and wrote up the pattern. I plan on sending out to a test knitter soon and am still in search of a good tech editor. If you know one let me know. Here is a shot of it “on the block”

 

If you have been debating on taking one of the Craftsy classes I highly recommend them. They are very well done and worth every penny.
