Molly is now available on!

I was so excited when approached by Knit Picks to submit my Molly the Traveling Turtle to the Knit Picks IDP (Independent Designer Program)! I had been thinking about it, but since there was already a cute turtle pattern on KP, I wasn't sure there was room for Molly, but I was assured that the patterns were different enough that they could both be on the website.

Then came the acceptance email! I was over the moon! I couldn't get the PDF and photos ready fast enough! But first, I had to make another sample. I loved the original Molly I made with tweed yarn, so I had to make a Molly with KP Wool of the Andes Tweed. Luckily, I had some left over from my Terra shawl.

After seeing MissCookie's Molly on Ravelry made with Chroma, I was inspired to give it a try. Let me tell ya, Chroma makes some super cute turtles! I had to include a Chroma Molly in my samples. I used some Wool of the Andes for the limbs.

Today, I got the most exciting email of all! Molly the Traveling Turtle is up on the Knit Picks website and for sale! And, at a special price of $3.99! Due to the fact that Knit Picks gives the designers 100% of the profits from the pattern, and the common price for a toy pattern on KP is $1.99-$3.99 I felt it important to price accordingly.
