    These beautiful Waves mittens are one of the reasons I bought this issue of Making, they are gorgeous.

    Those gloves are gorgeous! I’m definitely getting the Vancouver Island vibes and it feels like home :)

    Your knitting and patterns, styles, colors are all exquisite. You should be proud of your artistic ability. I hope your children appreciate all the beautiful hand knits they wear.
    I knit too, but not as much as you. Its fun to see how your new idea came true.
    You keep knitting and I will keep watching!
