I am that girl who ducked out of taking speech and communication in college by changing my major so many times that the class got overlooked by my adviser. Calculus? Organic Chemistry? Those were fun, but public speaking was my biggest nightmare. For some reason releasing this pattern has my stomach feeling exactly how it did on the few occasions when I was forced to speak in front of a class. I entered it into the Ravelry database on Saturday night just before I went to bed, which was a bit of a mistake because then I found it hard to sleep. As of right now, my Sunday Sweater is in the top 20 “hot right now” patterns on Ravelry (go to the main patterns page, look for the “hot right now” box, then click on top 20. Sunday Sweater is hanging out there at the bottom.) I am not sure what qualified it, or what is keeping it there, but I think that if you hop over and favorite it (or better yet, add it to your queue!) that may help it stay there. Of course it being in the top twenty makes me even more nervous. Why is it there? How long will it stay? Who knows. I am just pleased that it’s out there and that some of you like it! I am going to step away from the computer now, pick up my needles, work on something that is NOT a Sunday Sweater, and try to relax and remind myself that this is just a knitting pattern.
Thank you for encouraging me! In my little world, this really is a big deal and I appreciate you all so much (and now I am going to cry!)
(And in case it isn’t clear in the post, HERE is the link to my Sunday Sweater on Ravelry.)
Edited Monday morning to add: Sunday Sweater is at number 9 now!! You guys are so awesome!
