Getting organized…

Until recently, if you went to our pattern section, you’d find patterns sorted by type, i.e. sweaters, hats, mitts, scarves and shawls, etc.

But, now, thanks to John, our wonderful IT guy,  you can look for patterns in four, yes, FOUR, different ways: by type, yarn, designer, or collection. So if you’re looking for a pattern for leftover Osprey, or a pattern by Cecily Glowik-MacDonald, or you want to look at patterns grouped together in a lookbook–now you can. Joy! Something accomplished. Even if the dye house is lazing toward the finish line, at least we can move things forward on our website.

Any other ideas how to sort patterns? Just occurred to me. How about one-skein projects? Good category for make-a-gift season. No?

    How nice!

    You could also keep a (changing) category of the most recent patterns (maybe 5 latest ones).

    I do get the Quince emails and find out what’s new from there, so maybe it’s not necessary. And maybe it would be a nightmare to keep such a category updated actually…

    This all sounds good! I can’t tell if you’ve taken the patterns out of the “look books” and put them individually into categories but that would be so helpful also.

    Hurray! The lack of search engine was a small peeve on accessing your gorgeous patterns and yarns!

    I would definitely say that a category for ‘one skein’ would be excellent – there are so many of us that end up with an extra skein at the end of a project, or that splurge on a skein of something special because they just have to have it, but can’t really afford to get enough for a ‘real’ project.

    Another possible category would be ‘skill level’. Knowing how difficult a pattern is can help someone know whether or not the pattern is a good fit before buying it (and then finding out they don’t have nearly enough technical skill to attempt it).

    Yes Please! One skein projects :)

    Yes! One skein patterns, please. I have too many of those: for all the above reasons. Mainly, though, I can’t stand to not have something beautiful but can’t afford more than one skein….
