About a month ago I was checking "what's hot now on Ravelry" while at Westport Yarns. I do this at least once a day. Imagine my shock to see my pattern, Shakespeare Cardigan, on the third row of the first page. #16. I was speechless. My hands started waving before my voice kicked in to show Danni and Julie. Finally I was able to speak to call them over.
For the rest of the afternoon and evening I kept hitting refresh to see if it moved up.
By the time I went to bed my pattern was #4. This was a huge moment for me. Thank goodness for the ability to take a screen shot with my phone! Today there are 349 "favorites" and it has been queued 147 times.
While at TNNA I met Stacy Charles (another huge moment for me).
The yarn just arrived at Westport Yarns. We've added it as a class. Even though I designed it, I swatched anyway. My gauge can vary. It's a good thing too, I needed to go down a needle size. The yarn is Donegal Tweed.
Time to cast on...
