  5. I have knitted so many of your patterns, started off with Charlie Baby Jacket with hat, my nickname being "Charlie" when I was younger. Since then have knitted so many of your patterns. Busy knitting baby trousseau
    sets for all my grandkids and now want to knit your Wave of light baby blanket to go with the jacket and hat..
    Thank you for all your patterns, if looking for a pattern I always come back to your site to check.

  6. What a lovely pattern for a baby blanket and what beautiful colors in the yarn, I am going to try and find it here in the US.
    I also downloaded the cardigan, bonnet and hat patterns and I hate to ask but do you have a pattern for booties in this pattern, I really hope so as I want to make the whole kit and caboodle. Many thanks, Lin
