Thanks to Joanne in the USA

Posted on 19/01/2019

Joanne from New York sent me a box full of lovely patterns, here’s a sample. 

Postage is not cheap so I really do appreciate it when people send me their patterns and are happy to pay for the postage.  Thanks again Joanne.  I will do my best to get them up as soon as possible. 

Here is a sample of some baby patterns from Joanne, if you fancy any of these patterns and it isn’t published yet, drop me an email via my contacts page and I will publish it immediately.

A big thank you to Anne in Scotland who sent me some patterns to share on my website.

Here’s a sample from Sirdar’s Book 108, I can’t wait to get them all published.




Anne also sent me my first machine pattern. You can find it by clicking on the image.


Would you like to share a knitting pattern on my website?

If you have an old knitting pattern than you would like to share on my website, drop me an email from the contact page and I will send you my email address.  Unfortunately publishing my email address on the website generates an enormous amount of spam.

I am located in the eastern suburbs of Melbourne, Victoria, Australia.  If you are in this region I would be happy to collect any unwanted patterns.

A lovely lady who doesn’t want to be acknowledged, from Wantirna here in Victoria, sent me these two patterns:

Due to the generosity of Carolyn’s followers, beanies are no longer required at this time.

Carolyn at Cazinc has put out the call for beanies for premature babies at the Royal Children’s Hospital.

The Royal Children’s Hospital (RCH) is a major children’s hospital in Melbourne, Australia.

As a major specialist paediatric hospital in Victoria, the Royal Children’s Hospital provides a full range of clinical services, tertiary care and health promotion and prevention programs for children and young people. (Wikipedia)

2018’s Good Friday Appeal raised a record $18 million.

Carolyn has generously allowed me to publish her pattern for beanies in 3 ply and 8 ply wool.  Once knitted they can be sent to Carolyn who will deliver them to the hospital.  Please contact her via www.cazinc.com.au.
