  1. Don’t know if this will go thru or not. I am VERY impressed with your blog.

  2. Nagyon szép dolgokat mutatsz meg, Gratulálok. szivesen nézem az oldaladat! Ölelés, köszönet Margó

  3. I would like to buy a copy of your thrummed slipper pattern. I’ve been making the mittens for 50 years and have yet to find a good slipper pattern. I do not have paypal but have a visa card and I could send you a check.

  4. Michelle, I am finally getting to knitting the Hugs and Kisses mitts you were working on last year. How do I know which way (left or right) to lean the increase?

  5. Hi Michelle,
    I met you at the Yarn crawl. I’m sure you met hundreds of people. My name is Paula Johnson and I work at the Stitchin’ Post in Sisters. I am writing to let you know we are going to do a KAL using your Garland Shawl pattern. I do have one question however; I noticed the gauge is for stockinette and the shawl is knit in mostly garter. Also I don’t think I will be abl to get 23 rows for 2 inches in stockinette. Please advise.
    Thank you,
    Paula

    • Hi, Paula: Thanks for contacting me. Don’t worry about the row gauge; gauge is not critical. And I’m pretty sure that’s supposed to be garter stitch, not stockinette. Sorry about that!

      When are you starting your KAL?
