As Seen on Ravelry

Well, it’s been an exciting 48 hours in the land of viral pattern adoption. The Beads and Lace Fingerless Mittens pattern showed up late Friday night and Saturday on the Hot Right Now pattern page on Ravelry. The highest screen shot I got was:

It goes to show that persistent pays off in the unlikeliest ways. Midweek I designed a fingerless mitten that when I knit up the sample, I went “Ugh.” It was frogged immediately. Under the pressure of needing a pattern for the class, I whipped this puppy up (knitting on the fly and putting together the chart right afterwards before I forgot what I did).

I expect it will be a while before this lovely thing happens (if ever again!), but in the meantime, I have to admit I think maybe I’m for real on the knitting designer thing.
