The Fling

 

Three years ago I decided to design a wrap that one could fling on and off and that would stay in place without the use of a shawl pin.  While shopping in Saint Louis, I noticed this scarf that undulated in and out.  I though I could do that same concept with a shawl.  The idea for “The Fling” was hatched.

 

Once I made it, I decided that it would be wise to write down the pattern while it was still fresh in my mind.  Once I had the pattern done, I had to figure out what to do with it. 

 

I first ran it past Knitty.com.  They didn’t want it.  I guess my crowd wasn’t right.  So one the computer it sat, for about a couple of years.  I decided that it seemed right to just share it with other knitters and just get it out there.

 

My daughter Michelle and I are both members of Ralvery.  She is a serious member, but I not really.  Yesterday morning, I turned my pattern into a PDF and uploaded it to Ralvery as a free pattern.  Guess I now see the value of Ralvery.  I had been amazed by how many down loads it has gotten. 

 

My next pattern project will be turning “The Flock” into a PDF, which means rewriting it top to bottom and getting it uploaded. However, it will not be free.   The price will be the same as it always was.

 

And Ralvery? - I just found a mother-load of free Barbie patterns to knit from Europe.  Ah, some day…………..Think I am hooked on Ralvery.  It you are a Ralvery member or a future Ralvery member, feel free to find me.  I am Meadowtree and please visit me at meadowtree.blogspot.com to read more.
