It was definitely time for an update to my patterns. Up to this point I've been using Microsoft Word for my patterns, which was just ok. I think my patterns looked pretty good - for a Word pattern. It's a little plain though.
Over the last few months I'd been thinking a lot about how I needed to get more serious about pattern layout and overall presentation/branding. The time had come for an upgrade. After a few days of lots of Googling and general crankiness over trying to figure out something new, I'm making progress in my pattern updating using Adobe InDesign.
I am trying to update 6 patterns a week plus formatting one of my upcoming patterns for the fall. That is taking up a whole lot of time! Hopefully in a few weeks this project will be all done and I will be back to knitting and crocheting more. My poor Briarcliff sweater really wants to get done.
