to my blog and my introductory posting!
I am excited to start blogging and sharing projects and patterns with ravelry members, in particular, and other handcrafters, in general.
By way of introduction, my ravelry name is "delights." My intention in choosing this name was to make pleasingly delightful projects. Often I feel delighted in the creative process and sometimes I even create (sew or crochet) yummy delights, like faux cupcakes and cookies.
On ravelry, members often choose graphic representations to reflect themselves or their special interests. Members may select avatars like animals, graphic objects, cartoons or photos of their children or grandchildren. Other members use disguised photos of themselves in lieu of their real identities. Above is my disguised photo wearing a peacock mask. Actually, I am not wearing this mask. The photo was taken in 2008 at a gathering of high school friends in my hometown while I was there visiting. I photoshopped and superimposed the peacock mask on my face to create this disguise.
Now down to business. I am writing up my first ravelry pattern, Jewel Heptagonal Potholder, to share.
