FAQs

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.

Wool Ply and Tension Testing

The wool in most of our patterns is now unavailable.  Where possible we have tagged the garment with the wool ply but we cannot guarantee that the garment will knit up the same with a different yarn.

It is important to knit a tension swatch before starting your garment, this is doubly so if using a substitute yarn.  Here is a link to a Learn to Knit site that explains how to knit a tension swatch – Happy Knitting.
