My Ravelry Wishlist

It’s been a couple of years since I released my Glossy Ravelry Icons & I decided to make a little addition to them. I thought this would be a sweet way of rewarding your favourite bloggers, while supporting Ravelry & indie designers at the same time. How about placing one in your blog sidebar with a note that says: “My birthday is…” or “If you enjoy the posts on this blog, please consider gifting me a pattern from my Ravelry wishlist”? :)

I made two versions: one with the Ravelry parcel icon, and one with a simple bow, which I thought went better with the RSS feed icon. There are 7 sizes of each version: 24, 32, 48, 64, 80, 128 & 256px. The .ZIP file also includes the 2 extra 150×50 icons & the .SVG file so that you can edit them to your liking.

Here’s the code to use. Just change your username & the image name/path:

<a href="http://www.ravelry.com/people/USERNAME/queue?wishlist=true"><img src="wishlist150x50-1.png" alt="" /></a>

Hope you enjoy them, Ravellers! Leave a link to your wishlists if you’d like & maybe the Ravelry fairy will grant you a wish. ;)

Note: The parcel icon is from the beautiful Silk Icons collection by Mark James.

Houses Pattern on Ravelry

Houses

The Houses Slipover pattern is now available for download on Ravelry. You can purchase the PDF here. I have been reading a lot of books and articles on typography and layout, and have spent a long time making the pattern as readable and usable as I could. I posted about the gift tags before, but the PDF is also rich in photographs and both charted and written instructions. To me, it feels like a well-mapped journey (through 9 pages), and I hope you will enjoy it too.

Overview:

  • Knit in the round,
  • from the bottom up,
  • with a motif of three houses across the front,
  • completely seamlessly,
  • without waist shaping,
  • with the neckband picked up lastly, and also knit in the round.

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!
