When I started this blog back in 2009, it was my first foray into the world of website management. So my early patterns were just included in blog entries since I didn’t know how to make them downloadable at the time.

Since then, I’ve learned a ton about operating in the internet world and I’ve started a number of other websites on various topics. Plus I’ve discovered that my readers’ expectations have changed. Blog readers now just expect that every pattern on a site will be downloadable. So I’m working on it.

Last night, I posted the first downloadable version of one of my scarf patterns, for the Single-Rib Chenille Scarf. I even updated it a bit, including an alternative yarn (Patons Bohemian) in addition to the original Lion Brand Chenille.

I’m hoping to make downloadable versions of my other patterns available soon, plus get some new ones posted. Eventually, I’m hoping to start a mailing list for notices of new patterns. In the meantime, to stay up to date with new stuff, you can click to Follow This Blog on Facebook, or to add my RSS feed to your Google homepage or Google Reader.

Thanks for reading. If you have any questions about knitting, or want me to do a pattern for something (EASY only, please), or if you want to know about how to get started with your own website, please leave a comment below.

They share my philosophy that one of the attractions of knitting is that it is completely portable. In fact, they add a new knitting venue that hadn’t occurred to me: car pool lines. Now I wish I had re-learned to knit before my kids learned to drive!
