Hey guys! I’ve finally decided to start using the Categories feature that WordPress provides. I’m trying to remember to put them on new posts as I post them, and I’m slowly working my way back through the archives. Here’s a quick rundown of what they are and where they will bring you if you use them to sort my posts:
Knit: Well, that is a bit obvious :P It’ll show you any post where I talk about knitting!
Dianna Designs: This one will show you anytime I mention or knit one of my designs. Checking this category out can let you see posts where I’m thinking about designing something, photos of the WIP of a design-in-process, what goes through my head while designing and the finished design post.
FO: This category is used for when I actually complete something! It’s showing all of the posts that feature a finished object.
Test Knitting: I think I actually do more test knitting than designing. If a pattern that I’m test knitting is allowed to be blogged, here’s where you’ll find it.
Not Knit: Occasionally, I’ll talk about non-knit stuff (this is becoming more rare!) But this post would count!
I’ll also be adding in Patterns very soon–it’ll be a direct link to only posts where I actually post a pattern. It should equal the same number as the pattern pages that I have :p
And, now for the upcoming stuff. One thing I was thinking of is a designer profile type thing. This wouldn’t be a common occurrence on the blog, as I think I’d want to have knit at least 2 patterns from the designer to get a feel for their aesthetics and style and how they write out their patterns. But, I think this could be a neat thing, and I’d love to share some of my favourite designers with my readers.
ETA: Oh, and one thing that is already implemented–check out my Copyright/Licencing page. Basically, it’s outlining what you can and can’t do with my patterns. You can print 20 to make paper airplanes; you can’t print 20 to give to your friends. As for licencing, unlike a lot of designers, I’ve decided that you CAN sell the FOs you make from my patterns–up to 3 instances per pattern buy. So, if you want to sell 9 Full O’ Win Toques at a craft fair, you are allowed to do so if you buy the pattern (and the accompanying licence) 3 times. Read that page and let me know what you think or if anything is unclear :)
