    Tin can knits The Flax sweater. I need to see that part where you have cast on stitches. I need to see joining in the round and the first stitch is it a knit stitch to start knitting the rib around the neck.

    I liked your site before, but I LOVE the new one! It oozes more fun and knowledge. Oh! And I really appreciate the size ranges too! And the increased diversity as well. Well done, ladies. Well done!

    The new site is beautiful! Just one thought: maybe add a stockists link/list? I’ve been looking for shops that carry your print books to give as holiday gifts, and it would be handy to find them all in one place!

    LOVE it – there are so many patterns I have not yet seen through the years, and ones I cannot wait to start! Great idea to do this website! Kudos and happy holidays to all~!
