This website came into being with approximately 45 minutes of effort at 2:30 in the morning at the end of a very long week. I thought it would be a place to host one wee tiny simple pattern. I thought I’d be thrilled if a few dozen people found the pattern, and ecstatic if anyone ever actually knit the things.

Turns out it’s good to have low expectations. They are easier to exceed.

One pattern turned into three, and a fourth is in the hands of test knitters. According to the server stats, a few thousand people have found the pattern. Most exciting of all, I have actual photographic proof that several people have real live actual non-imaginary socks that came into being from the instructions in my patterns.

So with that in mind, I’m going to be redoing the website to be closer to a proper blog (the first and last time that word will ever be used here…it’s a strong contender for my coveted ‘least favorite word’ award). One with handy things like internal organization and more than one page and other such goodies. Right now I type this stuff as straight html in a text document. It’s not hard, but it is a bit slow, and so very 1997. Making it faster will leave more time for the much more interesting knitting. Look for it after the weekend.
