  1. I’m happy you are enjoying the pattern 🙂 Be careful winding yarn balls by hand while wearing your fit bit it thinks you are running lol!!

  2. Hey Rhondda, thanks so much for the awesome pattern. I like to wear my fitbit when I crochet, just to boost my numbers. But, seriously, I really like the design and it looks great!

  3. I really like the flexibility inherent in this pattern (slouch or non-slouch look).
