I published my first pattern, Lolo Shawl, on Ravelry yesterday, less than 24 hours before writing this blog. To my absolute amazement, it seems to have taken off in Ravery. Eight people have already purchased it and I only know one of those people (thanks Cate!), and it is in the top 10 of the 'Hot Right Now' list on the Ravelry Patterns page.
