  1. I just love your patterns. I knit premature beanies for charity and they all stipulate 4 ply wool. I would love to see your patterns with a 4 ply option. They are simply beautiful.

  2. Hi, I am a knitter who has recently re-discovered how fantastic knitting is. I love all your patterns and have made the Jasmine hat and the babbity jacket and hat (ran out of wool for the bootees). Have sent a friend request for your Facebook group under my name of Wendy D.

  3. On the medium premature hat is there a decreasing line missing? The decrease goes down by 12 in one line and 6 in the others?
    Thanks
