Helloooooo, Makers! What a crazy week it has been! I released my second garment pattern this week, the Blackwood Cardigan, which makes today a very exciting day because I get to include it in the roundup of new patterns! I had a VERY stressful weekend because my website was having technical difficulties in the middle of my trying to get the pattern out. I was freaking out about expectations and professionalism and honestly feeling pretty defeated. Thankfully, that is all in the past and I pushed through! Many of you managed to purchase the new pattern on Monday despite my website being THE SLOWEST SITE EVER, to which I am so grateful. For anyone who had issues with the site I apologize! It is running smoothly now so you can access the shop if needed. If you had any issues getting your pattern please email me at The response to the new pattern has been amazing, thank you all so much!!
