The Corsica pattern errata has just been updated both at and on Ravelry. If you purchased the pattern as a Ravelry download you should have automatically received a link to download the updated version.

In other news, be on the lookout for Esmerelda Part 6, the Right Sleeve, in the next few days!  I just worked the last decrease on my sample’s right sleeve, so hopefully I’ll get in a photo to show you as well.


Aaaaaaand the winner is…….Jeanine Militello! (Who apparently has a Husky who looks remarkably like Siena.) She chose Corsica (Ravelry link) as her favorite pattern. picked number 6 (I took R out of the running)! Thank you to those of you who became fans of my Facebook page and entered the contest. Look for more pattern giveaways here on my blog, on Facebook, in the Ravelry Fiber Fiends Group, and on Twitter in the future!
