    Mikey, you know all of us crochet crowders at on pins and needles now waiting to see your design. Oops! Maybe I shouldn’t have said that! I don’t mean to make it harder for you. But designing something from scratch is really putting yourself out there. Having to write it down so that others can do it too is something someone in most other crafts wouldn’t have to do. I know what you do will be good. Can’t wait to see it and try it out!

    Can’t wait to try it out!! I’ve been designing some bags and purse and what not! Its hard, me and math just don’t get along very well. My Husband has had to check over my math quite a few times.

    Wow! I’m currently writing a pattern too and there’s definitely a lot of frogging, but I’m creating the pattern as I crochet it and writing down as I go.

    You’re a lot more diligent, especially weighing the yarn. Good thinking!

    Of course I want asked to write my pattern, so it’s a bit lower pressure.

    Looking forward to seeing your results!

    Mikey that must be such an honor. I know it’s a lot of work both physically and mentally. I have faith that whatever you come up with, will be as amazing as you are. Can’t wait

    I’m trying my hand at designing blocks for an afghan idea I had… well, it started as an afghan idea, but I’ve decided to turn my successful test motifs into a tote bag, then use a different yarn for the afghan. So much math, a lot of frogging, and quickly diagrammed sections to figure out what works best and makes sense, and then trying to write up the pattern? I’m getting a whole new level of appreciation for designers whose work I already was in awe of.

    Wow. Enjoying the details of this process to create. And some people don’t even consider that crocheting is an art. You have proven that creativity with a hook and a piece of string is an endless universe. Continue to be expressive and courageous. 🙂
