    Awesome app! I can’t wait to see the paid patterns added. It’s really beautiful.

    You are always fantastic! I have always treasured everything I have made from your older patterns and I know I will do the same with the new ones. I have one son (a really BIG guy) and a So-Very-Fine daughter-in-law (she crochets -no knitting), but there won’t be grandchildren, and I have no knitting friends – So sad, for them!..’Let them buy Sweaters ( and cake) )!! Thank you so much for everything you have designed so far! I know I will treasure everything you design for us, and I can hardly wait!!

    This is great news! I just downloaded your new App! I knit almost exclusively using your patterns as they are easy to follow and include so many size and yarn combinations. Also, your work is very inspiring! Thank you!
