KnitKnots is having a late summer sale. Get 25% off ANY patterns or ebooks on Ravelry! Just use code “JustSitandKnit” at checkout and it will be applied to your order.
Good until 8/5 8a EST. Designs in testing are not valid.
I do still have THREE test spots for the Blue Fairy shawl and a handful for Éowyn and Sea Siren. Details can be found in this post from yesterday,
Now a word of warning: if you sell knitting or crochet patterns on Ravelry, Etsy or elsewhere on the internet, then check the ‘magazine’ thread at this forum: ChCrossStitch for your designs. I am not really sure yet what can be done, but this is clearly copyright violation and that folks, is illegal. Unfortunately the website is based in China or that is a WhoIs mask as the host could be trying to conceal their information. I haven’t looked long enough to know if any of my patterns are on this website but I have seen many of my friends work on it and it infuriates me!
If you know what actions can be taken, please let me know. I know there is buzz about the piracy on Ravelry, I am unsure of any other sites though.
I have greatly enhanced the pattern to include:
- better graft instructions, better links and tutorials
- better layout (numbered pages and new branding)
- general pattern cleanup (Sweet Babies is one of the first patterns I ever wrote up!)
- 6 different nature inspired cables found in my various designs and how to place them; per size
- how to add feet to the 2 smaller sizes (NB/SM)
- how to add a button down tab for newborns
- more pictures! 🙂
The 6 cables are-
- The Twist
- The Braid
- The Owl
- The Wheatear
- The Antler
- The Air
I’m SO excited to see what everyone comes up with!
KnitKnots also has new branding with catchy little bird mascots; Chubby the crow and Moony the Moon Phoenix! The blog has been made over and there is now a testing forum!
I have been SO busy with the book release this week, marketing and getting ready things ready for April 30th when Cloth Baby Layette comes out of beta! First I want to thank everyone for the great response, I never thought the book would be such a hit so soon!
When Cloth Baby Layette comes out of beta next Friday I will be splitting up the patterns for individual sale on Ravelry and for my Hyenacart. Also the e book will become available at Pulling at Strings. A few things to look forward to!
I’ve also created a fan page on Facebook as well as a Ravelry group. Any pattern questions can be addressed in the group forums there as well as messaging me.
