Life changes plus patterns now on Payhip

It’s been a couple of years since I’ve posted, but I’ve had reasons. I’m now divorced and then there was Covid-19. If you follow me on Instagram, you’ll know that something I love to do is go for walks and take pictures of what I find interesting or beautiful. That’s been the key to me getting through these difficult times.

Last summer Ravelry changed their website and I was one of the folks who suffered migraines from using it. I don’t know exactly what about the website that did that to me and I don’t know how to fix it, but I do know that Ravelry’s lacklustre response saw me lose interest in doing knitting design work. I’m the only adult in my household and I can’t afford to make myself sick doing my side gig.

I’ve gradually gotten back into design and I have a few more patterns in the works at the moment. I still haven’t figured out what to do about Ravelry. I haven’t taken down my Ravelry store and I’m not sure if I will. There is a new dark mode that might help, but I may just get others to administer my patterns. For now, there’s no change.

What I did do was to set up a Payhip store for all of my designs. They’re also available on LoveCrafts.

This was important to me as Ravelry is now inaccessible for many people.

For now, I’ll keep knitting and designing and putting out patterns as my schedule allows. I hope to post again more regularly.
