I know it's totally unlike me to post two entries so close together, but I can't help myself! I'm really excited because I just finished posting my first "for sale" pattern to Ravelry and Etsy.
I couldn't wait to get started so I entered it on Ravlery (see it here) before I had completely translated it from my shorthand to an actual pattern that's user friendly. I knew the translation wouldn't take very long, so I figured it was safe. I labeled the title as "coming soon" just in case anybody found the pattern before I was through.
I wrote out the pattern, proofed it a number of times, and then listed it in my Etsy shop. Take a look. (LOL The poor, lonely pattern is the only thing listed there right now.) THEN I returned to Ravelry to tweak the post there and add the link to purchase the pattern. To my amazement, it had already been added to four queues! Wish me luck; maybe it'll actually sell.
Anyhow, it's called the "Chubby Nubby Scrubby" and I happen to love it.
