this is probably as close to a personal blog post as you have seen from me in a very long time
Most of you know i design knitting patterns and that they are available on Ravelry—Not long ago I made all the patterns free because I had not sold any in a very long time, that is fine. Now I am seriously thinking of removing them all together. I have one pattern that has always been free and has had over 2 thousand downloads and maybe between 20-30 people actually attempt to make it.
This weekend I have been trying my darndest to help a fellow raveler with the pattern, I sent email after email explaining stitches, marker placements and row repeats. I feel like a total failure that I cannot communicate to her what she needs to make knitting the pattern a success. I feel really bad about this because I don’t want my reputation to be tarnished because I couldn’t explain it correctly.
I hate having a dissatisfied customer and don’t know how to handle it further. Thanks for letting me vent.
