Totally and completely nervous

I just posted my very first free pattern and my very first ‘for sale’ pattern. I am absolutely, completely a nervous wreck since these are the very first patterns I have posted. I have more to come in the future, so let’s hope that I did everything right and that I did a good job typing them up.
Whew, butterflies PLEASE go away!
The patterns can both be found here: Rockin’ the Loom Patterns

What is on my looms:
Right now, on my red KK I have a waist band for longies (or shorties) b/c down here in the Mississippi summer heat I let the kids run around naked (meaning in underwear or diapers) but Lady Tru likes to pull at the tabs of her diapers if it is exposed and next thing you know…the child is actually naked and lovin’ it! LOL! If she has anything covering the diaper she forgets about the tabs (until she gets smarter, I am sure) so I wanted to knit up something to cover it up in the hot summer months. 😀 (For those interested, pattern will be available…eventually. :P)
On my pink long KK I have another initial scarf. Same pattern as the first one except initials are JMK and the main color is black and the contrasting color is light pink. I would say that I am 1/4 to 1/3 finished with it at this very moment.
And on Monday, I sat down and made another Woven Ribbon Hat. This one is for a friend of mine that is in the hospital. She has cystic fibrosis and seems to be in and out of the hospital frequently. I hate that she has to do that and I feel like it depresses her. She was asking questions about the Woven Ribbon Hat, but was wanting it in black (instead of the original cream). Her coat is black. I tried really hard to get her to buy her own looms (seeing as that many of the looming community uses them while in and out of the hospital and at doctor appointments), but I think she was admitted back into the hospital before she had a chance to purchase any. I will suck her into this world one way or another! LOL! But for now, since I can’t send flowers and she doesn’t live here (she lives in Indiana) I will send her that hat she wants so badly. 😀

    That is so nice of you to send her the hat. It looks wonderful and I have downloaded and saved the pattern. Thanks for your hard work! I will probably be buying the other pattern as well but, want to make sure my sister would use it if I made it up for her as she has one that is 3 and one on the way (Born around June 26th!)
    So glad you have taken the plunge into making your own patterns. Wish I had that nerve! Maybe someday I will brave it. Keep up the great work hun!!

    Robin, congratulations. You have helped so many with the loom questions.The patterns are great. See, a new career and you didn’t even plan it. Maybe you will order the KISS looms from your pattern sales. Every little bit helps.Keep up the good work.

    Wow. Those are great. I cloth diapered all three kids and I wish that my looming life started way earlier so I could have used the pattern. I was a rubber pants and pin girl even with all my expensive all in ones and velcro style wraps. Oh well…I love the hat too. I think it would be nice to be able to customize it for holidays. Great work!
