Announcement: Moving To Ravelry

Hello everyone! I am posting my newest patterns on Ravelry. I have been getting notifications on my blog that viewers in Europe might not be able to see the blog because of the new privacy laws. However, I figure that Ravelry is a big enough site that they will make sure that European viewers can still access the site. Therefore, I think it is more accessible to more people if I post my patterns on Ravelry now. As always, both US and UK versions are available. Here are the latest patterns I've created. :)
