Okay, maybe the all-caps was a bit over the top – but I do have some very exciting news to share with you – or news I think is exciting, anyway!
But first, let me say hello to you all and to all the new followers! I have not been around this little space for quite a while and I apologise for the 7/8 months of absence. This was because I have been very busy studying for my A-Level exams and I had too many things to do and unfortunately this blog had to take a backseat for a little while. And this leads me on to the first big chunky news item I have for you – I got my exam results on Thursday and I have a place at no less than Cambridge University to study Linguistics!! This begins at the start of October and I am so looking forward to starting! I am anticipating being able to blog more frequently over the next 3 years, but as for the actual frequency I can’t tell just yet. If you’d like to keep up with what I’m doing, then check out my Instagram as I post there more regularly (see the side bar on the right or click here).
Now onto the more relevant big news: I have released my first pattern and it’s available on Ravelry just here.
This is Agatha – a top I designed to be fully adjustable by using one of your own tops so that it fits perfectly. I used Stylecraft Malabar Aran which unfortunately is discontinued, but I’m sure any aran-weight cotton would do the job just as well. I based it on the 2 well-known granny square motifs. I named it Agatha because I was listening to Agatha Christie audiobooks when I was designing it!
More details are available on the Ravelry page and if you do have any questions, fire away – you can do this by commenting on this post, sending me a Ravelry message, an Instagram message or even via the Contact Me page.
My final news is much less exciting than the others. It’s simply that this blog of mine passed the 2-year mark on Sunday. I am so grateful to you all for continuing to follow me and support even though I’ve been completely silent here. I am also thankful that this blog has allowed me to fulfil my dream of releasing a real pattern, and I hope I will continue to do so.
A toast to many more years!
Best wishes to you all!
