I have to admit, I am blindsided by the uncanny goodness of the people I meet online. Not everyone lives up to the first impression they gain, but most do. I would go so far as to say, the majority of the people I have met in the last year only become more dear to me as time goes by.
Is this because I am dealing with aging, and the normal side effect of it? Well, that is possible. I know that my emotions run the gamut very frequently. I can go from laughing hysterically to bawling in just a minute. I can go from being comfortable in my sweater to freezing, and then pulling off layers of clothing in just a short period of time. Yes, I will turn 50 in just under a week, and this middle aged woman thing has me a bit confined. It is not predictable, and when you are in the children’s room at the local library, hit with the panicked feeling of a hot flash, you learn really quickly that stripping is not an option.
Sorry, another symptom, I tend to ramble off track. I was talking about how wonderful it is to have made the friends I have, and yes, I am gushing a bit. I want to share, I want to give back.
Today, it is a pattern, that I created. This is one of four in My 3 D V pattern listed on Ravelry
Some time back, Katy did a video tutorial for a stitch, you will want to watch this short video before getting started. the link is in the stitches used section of the pattern.
I am so excited to put this out there for you, so Please, enjoy.
Oh, the legal stuff, just so we are clear. I am sharing this pattern, free of charge. I want credit (I earned the right to be selfish on this point) so if you want a friend to have this, share the link to this blog, Please, share the link, I want recognition for my work, just as I am sure you do, for the work you do.
