I've decided to bite the bullet and try selling my own knitting patterns on the interweb. It's something I've wanted to do and have been meaning to set up for a really long time. I have a few patterns on hand that I plan to set up as downloadable pdf files that you can purchase from my etsy site. If it's successful, or even semi-successful, I think I'll keep adding to the collection. Yippee!!
I tend to get so tangled up in page design, re-inventing logos and wishing for better photos that I never end up getting to the publishing part. These patterns are far from perfect in my mind, but I'm letting that be ok. I just want to see what happens or hear the response, if any.
The first pattern uploaded today:
