I don’t have to worry about all of that now

I’m finished (as far as I know) with all of the pattern updates, so now I can maybe crochet without that hanging over me and bothering me. Every one of my available patterns have been cleaned up and are ready for download, I even “cleaned” up some of the photos on Photoshop, so hopefully they look a bit more appealing than they used to. Unfortunately, I no longer have a lot of the items to take new photos of because they ended up being gifts for other people and I never made another.

Now I just need to finish getting over these ickies and get my energy and motivation back so I can get my projects finished.


Don’t forget, I’m looking for people interested in testing my Daughter of Dragons Shrug. There are more details about that in THIS POST. I can get the 1st half of the pattern out to begin testing right now.

Well, I went ahead and did it anyway…

I updated all but 4 out of 17 available patterns so far. It really wasn’t too difficult, just a lot of copy and paste, then fixing the format, added “pretties” like page borders and some color, and fixed anything else weird that I might have noticed, like spelling and such. The patterns themselves are not changed (except the Adipose which I updated last month already), since over the last 6 or so years I haven’t been contacted about any errors (except the Adipose). Looking back at my old patterns, the way they were formatted originally was odd, so I’m glad I updated them. I did finally update the photo for the Snowflake Earrings though. I was finally able to get a much better photo of them than what I previously had. If you click on the photo, it will take you to a new tab with an enlarged photo and you can see the touch of color from the pearl metallic thread I used šŸ™‚

I also updated the pattern link pages for the free crochet, knit and the for purchase pattern pages. I alphabetized all of the pattern links, and IĀ  also added thumbnails of all of the patterns below the corresponding links. I actually have 16 out of the 17 patterns that I have available currently on Ravelry posted here. I have 14 free crochet, 1 free knit, and 1 crochet for purchase here on WordPress. I should probable make a page for the Tunisian Mini Decorative Pillow here too… hmmmm

I am so hoping soon I’ll be able to release the Dragon Scale Shrug! I’ve started the pages for it in preparation.

I am still feeling a bit under the weather, but better than yesterday, so that’s something šŸ™‚

The Dragon Scale Shrug Revisited

I did some editing on the pattern today and I decided to split the pattern; SML on one, 1X, 2X, 3X on another. I figured less numbers to wade through to figure out what size is what. I also made it a little more customizable also.

I think I might be getting closer to the release date for it šŸ™‚


front and back shrug


Also, still working on the dice bag order and the shrug for my grandmother. I might also have a jewelery order coming šŸ˜€
