Have you been to Craftsy yet?

I'll have to admit, I haven't been able to spend as much time poking around Craftsy as I would like, but from what I've seen, it seems to be a pretty cool place. And any site that offers a free chocolate making class is totally worth its weight in yarn.

Craftsy is now offering patterns for sale and so I decided to test the waters and upload just one pattern, to see if it would all be worth it.  I decided to upload Alluvia, since it's been my most popular pattern to date and I figured there might be an audience for it.

Was I ever surprised...Craftsy is selling Alluvia like CRAZY.  As in, I've sold more in the last week on Craftsy than I have the last year on Ravelry.

And look!  Alluvia has made the top 20 trending pattern today!  (Coming in at lucky #13.)

Screen shot...proof of my newfound fame. Ha!

And seriously, check out the Craftsy link to these completely adorable baby booties:  Crocodile Stitch Booties.  How freaking sweet are those?! I might have to pick up my crochet hook again for those...and I just so happen to have some extra Noro hanging around.  Hmmmm....


  1. nice! congratulations on your unexpected success! :D

  2. I need to get my butt over there & put my patterns up. Always something to do... Thanks for posting this!

  3. Congratulations on the success! I just pinned those crocodile stitch boots a few days ago. They are cute!
