    Any chance you would share that GREAt Giants hat pattern with me?
    My husband is a serious fan and it would be an AWSOME holiday gift.

    Hello! I was just surfing the net looking for cabled scarf patterns. While looking at your page, I happened to notice you LOVE Veronica Mars. I just stumbled upon her too a few months ago upon the recommendation of a friend and I just got admit I love the show, too. She is soooooooooooo much cooler than Nancy Drew (whom I loved as a kid) and the show is very smart and entertaining. Alright, got to finish my search for the perfect scarf pattern.

    Your knitting is an inspiration. I love knitting and taught myself over the years….now I am absorbed by socks, but with two young ones, myself, I have a hard time finding time! How do you do it?
    Thanks for sharing.

    Hello there! I found your blog while surfing local fiber sites…I’ve just started playing with a spindle–can’t call it spinning just yet –still in the ‘ugly’ phase. Anyway, you mention a spining guild–are you serious? Is there a group of like-minded folks in the Winston area? I’d love to find a class and/or a supply of more roving for practice. I see KnitPicky is having a spindle class in January. Do you know of any others?

    A knitting class is next on the list so I’ll have justification for buying the wool. I hope to try some of your easier patterns some day!

    I had been looking for the pattern of a rectangular wrap with a stockinette stitch, one buttonhole and three large buttons for a year now. I have seen it on a person and a display piece. I have basically the idea how to do it but will be more comfortable if I have a pattern to help guide me. So I googled and found your sample. I think it is the exact pattern that I have been looking for. Is it possible for you to share the pattern with me. I will forever be grateful.

    Hi, Mandy — I think I’ve just joined your blogging group — guess I’ll know soon whether I did it right –!!! I live in San Diego, and am still at the garter stitch stage, although I’ve learned to do stripes and multiple colors in rectangular things (scaves & afghans –)

    I’ve created a knitting design (not so much a pattern, exactly, as a concept, easily adapted to LOTS of variations) that I’d love to share with other knitters — may I try it out on you, in hopes you can help me explain it so others can use it?

    Thanks — Jamie

    Hi Mandy!

    I loved the red sweater pattern you designed & shared in “My Favorite Things.” Am just getting acquainted with EZ’s Percentage System, so certainly am not there regarding designing yet. Is there any way to get/buy, whatever, a copy of that sweater? LOVED it!!!

    Your blog is such an inspiration! I have been knitting since I was 6 or 7 and as a mama of 2.5 y.0. and 7 m.o. girls I am constatly knitting for them. I have done EZ’s feb baby sweater for both and I am now doing matching tomtens. After seeing your blog I ordered the wallaby pattern and am looking forward to making them for my girls for Christmas! How nice to see that you sew too. I also enjoying sewing for my home and kidos. God Bless!
