Glossy Ravelry Icons

free ravelry icons

If you are at all interested in the world of knitting or crochet, I hope you have already heard of the amazing Ravelry. Knowing that I’m part of the best web community out there, and that most tech geeks probably don’t even know it is pretty cool, so I wanted to have a nice big Ravelry button to link to my profile. While I was making it, it occurred to me that it might be neat to be able to offer your readers a link to the RSS feed of your profile page. I don’t suppose many people are aware that you can do this, but it’s a great feature! Another huge thumbs up to Casey and Jess!

These were all made with Inkscape. I thought drop shadows looked a bit messy at smaller sizes, so I didn’t add any, but if anyone wants them, I can make some versions with drop shadows too.

The .zip file includes:

  • Round icons in .png format, in 7 sizes.
  • Round feed icons in .png format in 7 sizes.
  • Square icons in .png format in 6 sizes.
  • Square feed icons in .png format in 6 sizes.
  • All icons in vector format in 1 .svg file.

Updated as of 1 December 2008: The .zip file now also includes a handy readme.txt file to tell you how to use the icons!

Houses Slipover Pattern Preview

This post is in celebration of the last row of Houses, a simple slipover knitted in the round, and the last line of Close Knit, the novel I have been writing for National Novel Writing Month. I wrote my 50,000th word while wearing the newly finished and blocked Houses Slipover (or vest if you prefer), and I can vouch for its cosiness. It is knit in 4 ply wool, as I have mentioned before, which makes it thin and drapey, while warm, and perfect for layering. I am in love. I have yet to finish writing up the pattern, mainly because I started thinking about pattern design, but it will be available very soon. Subscribe to the blog via Bloglines or Google Reader or email to be updated when it’s available. In the meantime, here are some photos (more will soon be available on Flickr), and some basic information.

I’ve almost finished my first pattern for the first Laylock collection. It is a vest/slipover knit in Rowan Pure Wool 4 ply. Here’s a sneak peek:

Meanwhile, I loved Lara Cameron’s (of Kirin’s Notebook & Ink & Spindle) post on tips for starting a small craft business. Especially the secret pricing formula. Oooh! I love Lara’s work. One of my secret wishes is to design fabrics one day.

Stay tuned for updates: subscribe to the feed, friend me on Ravelry, or follow me on Twitter!
