Slumps. And a Free Pattern Coupon Code.

Yesterday it was almost 70° F (I don't know Celsius-conversions, sorry) and today the weather guy tells me the temps are going to plummet to about 20° F.

Ugh.

I don't know about you, but I get into slumps. I've fallen into a bit of a post-Winter Olympics knitting slump. I wind yarn into balls, swatch projects, sketch designs; but nothing gets past the start. It's times like this when I really turn to Ravelry to find a new project.

Sitting in my queue is a pair of slippers (Stippers) I only made once for my dad and, because of the way hand knitted gifts sometimes work, I got them back. Now he needs another pair of slippers, something warm and woolly and maybe a little taller because I think he might shuffle too much and they slip down over his heels. Or maybe just a pair of socks?

Suddenly, this doesn't seem like the cure for a knitting slump like I thought it might be.

Want one of these? Use coupon
code "RodeoKnitsMarch"
Maybe I can help you. If you're feeling in a slump (or even if you're not), I've decided to offer 25 free patterns to anyone who uses coupon code "RodeoKnitsMarch" when you purchase a pattern from me on Ravelry from 5:00pm EST March 12, 2014 through 11:59pm EST March 15, 2014. You can review all of my patterns here: http://www.ravelry.com/stores/rodeo-knits.

I'm really very curious to see which patterns might be most popular. Let me know in the comments what you think. And don't hold back, I'm a big boy and can handle it.
