New pattern??

I will admit, I've been considering typing up and selling my pattern for a hand/dish towel and dishcloth.  I've held back for some time, since the stitches used are basic, the only 'trick' is the row count for the pattern of stripes.  However, after seeing how some designers charge $5 for a basic double crochet hat pattern (and they do sell!), I've been re-thinking this and may just type it up.

For a few weeks, I did not pick up a crochet hook at all, or if I did, it sat beside me tucked into a skein of yarn, both of which after a while were put away, in the same condition I brought them out.  Tiring of this lack of creativity, I pulled out a hook and some cotton yarn and figured I'd just work on some dishcloths.  Which surprisingly, did actually help with my creativity.  Since then, I have a couple ideas in mind, hopefully I can start one of them very soon.

Everything may get put aside in 5 days though, I've been waiting for 2 years for the third book in a triology to come out, and July 15th is THE day.  I was hooked almost from the beginning of Deborah Harkness' "A Discovery of Witches" and after finishing "Shadow of Night" waited anxiously for the third book.  And waited...and waited...I felt like an online stalker constantly checking for any sign of progress.  Finally, my was to be rewarded, and with an actual date, even though it was still a few months ahead, the waiting was easier.
I haven't waited this anxiously for a book since the Harry Potter books.  :)
