Well, I've posted two free patterns so far and am working on more. I'm having a couple tested right now, so will get them in print shortly I hope. I have submitted one to a magazine editor, so keep your fingers crossed. If that doesn't work out, then I'll pass it on to one more, then offer it for free after that. I am getting my first pattern published in the Crochet Liberation Front's newest book called "All Growed Up." Don't know when it's coming out, but can't wait. My pattern is the Boobie Scarf. It's listed in Ravelry if you want a sneak peek. :)
It's difficult for me to write down my patterns as my medications affect my memory in such a way that I forget trivial things. I once forgot to include the hook conversion, which I usually do include; or some other trivial thing that I usually don't forget. It's very frustrating. Thank God for testers. So far they have been very helpful in catching all my mistakes and omissions for me. I'm very grateful to them and they do it for free - well, they get to keep the pattern for free. :) That's a good deal, especially if the pattern will be published. And they get my undying gratitude. I couldn't do it without you - keep up the good work!
