Releasing Etsy patterns

Today, I'm closing my Etsy shop and releasing all the patterns there under a CC-BY license; you can download them here.

I'm grateful for the role this blog and shop have played over the last 9 years, especially as a fun and therapeutic hobby. Moreover, the sale of patterns and objects supplemented my stipend, meaning that the financial concerns facing most PhD students and postdocs were less pressing.

However, I'm starting a new position soon, prompting a rare desire to clean house, so to speak. Despite the fact that I have one more crochet project in the pipeline, this is obviously an area that's waning in terms of my attention, and it feels like the right time to wind down this operation. At the same time, I'd like to enable people to continue to have access to these patterns and to use them as they see fit.

So - enjoy!
