My new site is up! Head to leethalknits.com to explore all my knitting patterns in one place.
To celebrate this launch, you can save 20% off all leethal patterns and ebooks! Enter coupon code leethalknits to use it on any number of my patterns you want!
That code will work for a week, ending next Thursday the 14th. You could take advantage of it to get $4 off Remixed if you don’t have the collection already ;) Want to learn more about the website? First of all, when you’re on the home page, hit refresh a few times – there are 17 different knitting-progress photos on the left that randomly rotate. I had fun making that part!
I wanted the site to be as simple as possible – an organized place to browse through all my patterns (including all quick knits, which are separate and not well organized on leethal.net), with minimal details crowding and cluttering… With as many patterns as I have (over 80), it was impossible to make it as clean and simple as I’d hoped, but I think I managed to do okay.
I did build one page with all the patterns (above) – clickable from the bottom of the home page – and I considered making that the home page, but I like dividing the patterns between collections, solo, quick knits, and free; it feels more organized that way.
So, there are those 4 main category pages, pages for the ebook collections, and then each pattern has its own page (with the exception of the quick knits, which are all in their pairs). The pattern pages are just a few key details, links to the rav page, photos, blog post, so you can click over to learn/see more details if you want, and then buy buttons, just the basic essentials.
I tried to make it all as easy to navigate as possible while keeping it clean and minimal (for me at least, it’s very minimal). Besides the pattern pages, there are just one info page and one wholesale page, and that’s it. See? Minimal!
It’s not perfect for mobile viewing, but it functions. For some reason, on my iPad, the heading on the home page doesn’t align to the right like it’s supposed to, so it overlaps a lot with the background photo, but oh well, I think all the important elements work. (Let me know if you come across anything that doesn’t work on your browser or device? This is the downside of amateurishly building my own sites, I’m not knowledgable enough to be confident it works on all browsers, so I have to ask these things… hopefully it works fine and there won’t be any problems.)
I put a little section of feedback quotes on the info page – all taken from ravelry project notes. If I put a quote by you here, I hope you don’t mind! I’ll be rotating them out as I read new quotes I want to add… There are also lots of links on that page, so you can easily click over to leethal.net, the blog, craft tutorials, leethal groups and social media presences, etc…
So yeah, that’s my new site! Enjoy! And happy knitting!!
