  1. Hi
    I am new to your blog and am finding a really neat site.
    My question is am I allowed to print copies of your patterns for my own use.

    I find your patterns innovative and interesting.

    thank you

    • Carolyn,

      Absolutely! Feel free to print them (there is a print button at the end of every post). I just ask that you don’t pass around any of my patterns for purchase. Enjoy!


  2. Pretty stitchpattern! Thank you for sharing!

  3. I would like to print a couple of your patterns for use at my armchair but am having trouble getting a printable view of any. when I try to print, it prints 6 pages of everything else on the site page. Your patterns are beautiful. Makes me want to just get going with the hooks! Thanks.

    • Hi Sharon. What patterns specifically are you looking for? Maybe I can email them to you?
