  7. Please could you tell me where to place my cursor to print these gorgeous little hats? I cannot point to File and scroll down to print as it is not shown at the top of my screen. Could someone make a helpful suggestion - thanks.

  10. would really love it if you did patterns for circular needles. your patterns are soooooo gosh dang cute but I am honestly no good at sewing up seams so that they are invisible.
