I designed my first two patterns yesterday. One is written up and halfway test knitted, the other, almost written up and the yarn is on hold for test knitting. Granted, they are both washcloths, but I'm really proud of myself. I hope people will like them, and this will get my foot in the door of the world of designing.
Also, I bought some yarn to make some simple dishcloths to sell on my Etsy.
