I Hope Etsy is Better the Second Time Around

The old song goes, "Love is better the second time around." Maybe the same applies to Etsy. I had an Etsy shop last year, with no sales, but the web site was new and mostly unknown. Now it has really grown and I'm hoping that it will prove to be a good venue for selling my patterns.

In the meantime, I have completed my Ribbon Top! I made this top originally with Sensations Rainbow Boucle in shades of blue for my sister (my willing guinea pig) and it was a hit, but I wanted to see it in Incredible Ribbon. I used Autumn Leaves, with a ball of a different dye lot for the back yoke for an effect. The pattern includes sizes small to 3X.

I hope everyone likes this top as much as I do!

It's Finally Ready!

I just published my revised version of my Pineapple Pullover, which includes sizes Small to XXXL. Hopefully, everyone will be pleased with the updated yoke, which uses the pineapple as an center accent.

The sweater shown (which is modeled by my sister Mary) was crocheted with Lion Brand Cotton Ease in taupe. It has side vents and can be crocheted in any length desired.

I hope everyone thinks it is worth the wait!
