My 2015 kicked off with three patterns published in the Knit Now Magazine January and February issues: Flora Armwarmers, Fireside Throw and Queenly Mitts.

Throughout the year I designed a total of eight patterns for Let’s Get Crafting. These are my three favourites of the bunch: Phone Cosy, Surface Protectors, Classic Ducky.

I don’t know how much it has shown externally, but 2015 has felt like a year of transition for me. My littlest kiddie started preschool in September, which has freed up time for me to pursue my goals, and I’ve decided to remain committed to designing. I know that I have to work very hard, and that I have lots of learning to do!
My confidence has been slowly growing and I’ve taken some little steps to improve my visibility as a designer. I have started a newsletter and I’ve started using instagram. This coming year I would like to promote my Ravelry designer group and use it as an active hub with knit-a-longs and other fun!
I have lots planned for 2016 – excited for the year ahead!
