Shows Continued Improvement

You know how you look back on those (dreadfully earnest and sickeningly leaden) papers you wrote your first year of college and just wince?  Or maybe it's entries in your high school journal or your first few blog entries that make you cringe.   Well I did that the other day.  Not with papers, but with my early patterns. Popped was my first pattern, and I didn't know what in the world I was doing back then.  Luckily, that one got totally revamped somewhere along the way as part of it's release through Knit Picks Independent Designer Program, so it's fine [...]

I'm fairly smug and full of myself, but on the off chance you like them, you can make them too. Download the pattern here. Aren't I keen? Actually, I may sort of suck.
