I'm a designer!

I’m so excited – I am now officially a designer on ravelry. My Jolly Little Goody Bags pattern is connected up and I feel very professional. I feel all inspired to create.
My goal, by the end of the year, is to design a knitting pattern for a vest or tee shirt – I’ve got plenty of ideas but the thought of actually writing the pattern out properly is quite daunting. Never mind – it’s all part of the challenge.

I found a lovely website recently for an artist,Lucy Grossmith. Here are some of her summery pics.


  1. Hi-I was wondering how you become a designer on Ravelry. I am on Ravelry and am curious because I design my own creations too! :)

  2. Hi fflynghts,
    Thanks for your comments. For useful info on how to become a designer, when on ravelry click on the help button and look in the wiki designers section. This gives a very helpful step-by-step guide to what to do. The notes say that it takes about a week to hook-up but mine only took a few days. Good luck, I'll keep a look out for your designs on ravelry.

  3. January--I love these bags and the adorable little buzzy bees! Everything you create is simply wonderful. I've faved a few of your things on Ravelry so I can keep up with your designs.

    For fflynghts: I recently posted one original design on Ravelry and it WAS a thrill! It took a bit of work to get it up but it was entirely worth it. There's lots of help on Ravelry from folks who are more than happy to lend you a hand. (Since this is an older thread, I'm wondering if you "went for it"? Hope so!)


Thank you for visiting Yellow Pink and Sparkly. I'd love to hear from you, so please feel free to leave a comment.
