It's [a]live!

Finally, finally, finally...

Castanea Sativa is live!

It's available as a Ravelry download for €4.50 EUR.  With no small thanks to my fabulous team of test-knitters, it's about as tweaked and finalized as I can possibly imagine it being.  Here's hoping.  Getting my first self-published pattern ready for prime time was no small undertaking, but I'm finally happy with the finished product and even though it slowed me down a lot, loved having total editorial control.  I'm hoping to get some smaller projects out into the wild soon, and look forward to the relative ease of marking up a few accessory patterns.

Here's some more info from the pattern page:
