Pending One-Day Neckwarmer Pattern

We had no internet yesterday for 14 hours… thank goodness for this tiny 9″ netbook with wireless, and the Library and Rae’s Yarn Boutique as alternative internet connections.

cowl125I knit a neckwarmer in one day, following that zigzag train of thought started by loving the Parisienne Beret pattern. Now I have wool/silk blend yarns and a different stitch pattern, slightly, a different stitch count, two options for top/bottom edges.

One never knows where inspiration will pop up. So now, I have a pattern almost written, a sample knit and photographed, and if all goes well (must be approved) I will have a Featured Pattern Ad on Ravelry starting November 16, for 2 weeks.

I loaded the pattern and project on Ravelry last night, sitting in my car in the parking lot at Rae’s Yarn Boutique. I have a key code for her internet service, and though I also hold a key to the store it was faster to stay in the car. It was a little amusing, but also entertaining.

By the time 13 hours passed from first loading the pattern, I have had 71 people favorite the pattern and 16 folks add it to their “queue” as planned knitting. I must say this is more than a thrill, patterns usually do not take off this fast. WooHoo!

If you are a member of Ravelry (it’s free), you can view the One-Day NeckWarmer Pattern there.

Now to test quickly and get that pattern finalized.
