The response to the Facebook posting was very good. I had not discussed my idea with Wendi our pattern editor at all. The next morning we chatted by phone. Wendi said: “I see you have been busy”. I said: “What do you mean?” She had been following me all day on Facebook! I said: “oh yah, that – I have been writing really good patterns.” I felt like a little kid in trouble. I had every intention of discussing this idea with Wendi before we fully committed to the whole idea.
