    Happy Anniversary!!! I love your Rye sock pattern. I am wearing my socks today and they feel so good in my feet and one of the best patterns that I have used for socks yet. Keep up the great work. I am going to look at obtaining a few of your books for my ever growing pattern collection.

    Congratulations and thank you for 5 years of super cute and beautiful, well written, clear and concise patterns. I only discovered you 6 months ago but have knitted a few of your designs already including Lush 5 times.
    Now please excuse me whilst I take advantage of your excellent celebration offer (it would be almost rude not too ;0) ) xxx

    Congratulations on 5years! You certainly should be proud of what you’ve achieved! Thank you so much also for the offer, you are very generous!! I keep forgetting that the projects can be made for young & old, & liked the reminder & have got new ideas to make jumpers that I might not do for me, but do for my nephew!! All the best for the following designing years to come!

    Congratulations on your five years! I am a huge fan of your patterns, I’ve already knit a Lush, a Vivid Blanket, Paddle Mitts and 48 little sock ornaments and there are a lot more in my queue list. Also you are responsible for our holiday plans next summer, after having seen Road Trip I had to book a holiday on Vancouver Island ;-) Keep going!!!

    I tried to take advantage of your sale, but the shopping cart would not allow me to put USD and CDN in the same order – I hope this can change, as I’d love to get both patterns!
