A present for YOU on my birthday :)

To celebrate my birthday on the 13th, I'm giving away a free pattern in my Ravelry Shop with the coupon code HAPPYBDAY from January 11 through January 14 (EST). (That's all day Friday, Saturday, Sunday, Monday.)


The last two aren't in the shop yet - if things go according to plan they will go up in time for the giveaway!
 
This past year of designing has been so much fun and I really appreciate each and every one of my customers :)  This is just a small way to say thank you! Spread the word :)

  132. What a gift from a gifted artist! Your designs are truly inspiring!
    I am a Zen Buddhist nun and I have just recently rediscovered knitting and crocheting. In our tradition at the time that celebrates one’s birth we say “Happy Continuation”. And that is my wish for you and the beautiful gift of creativity, peace and joy that you inspire in so many. May you continue to share with all your unique talent and may the transmission of joy continue in all of those whom you have inspired and surely will continue to do so.
    With palms joined and deep bow I offer a lotus to you _()_
