    These are amazing! I have so been looking forward to seeing the new patterns each day! These are so cute and I’m looking forward to the introduction to fair isle knitting! Thank you!

    Thank you so much! I found it! So nice of you! My feet have been freezing, even double socking and wearing Ugg slippers! This looks like just the thing I’ve been needing! And big yarn to whip them up fast before winter is gone! This was very very nice of you! I used to live in Japan where there is no central air or heat so I totally understand how you felt being so cold in England! (Thank you for including a size big large size for men!!!)

    Thank you for all the patterns! It is fun to get daily gifts as an adult. 😊

    The twelve days of Christmas free patterns is so sweet of you to do! I am waking up each day, eager to see what my gift will be. Thank you for being so generous. At my slow, easily distracted, knitting pace, I will likely have at least 12 months of patterns to explore!

    A friend of mine has her children create their Christmas wish list in November and then they send it to the Santa elves. As a thank you for the list the elves bring a small gift (a sparkly pencil) for each of the 12 days of Christmas. I have adopted this tradition and it is quite fun!

    Merry Christmas to all of you!

    I already own Pacific Knits, but I don’t think I have a PDF of the patterns, so thank you!!

    Thank you so much. A young man is going to be VERY happy to receive a pair of these. I made him socks from your pattern last winter but these are exactly what he really wanted.

    These are lovely, they’re definitely on my knitting queue after my Christmas knitting is done (only one sock and half a hat left…) Also living in England I have a hot water bottle at night between September and May!
