I am adding patterns as I am able using the internet at Ngatea Library. Thank goodness there is public WIFI there so that I can as Vodafone and others are unable to provide a service at our little piece of paradise.
I will keep the prices at $4.00 NZD till the end of March 2012 – as a celebration that I am online again on Mondays and Fridays – even if it is rather difficult and that there is an end in sight as we are looking at a satellite connection BUT everything takes time.
So far these patterns are on Etsy:
I haven’t had a functioning computer for some months and am catching up. Today I have checked Google Analytics for the first time in many months.
This site has had 18,898 visitors since 19 November 2009 when analytics was set up. That is 19 months with an average monthly visitor count a smidgeon less than 1,000 per month. In the last few months where I have not been adding to the website due to the lack of computer facilities to do so the average has still been just a smidgeon over 1,025 per month.
Thank you so much for still looking.
Just for fun:

The top post was Beret Pattern in 8ply or double knitting is on Etsy now It is now available once more on Etsy. So that is the news – my Etsy shop is opened with its patterns once more as well.
You do know I have not ever knitted socks, and until this last week I had never designed for the hands and arms. I still haven’t knitted the IOU red socks for Best Beloved and Son. They will happen, there is a birthday early December and then there is Christmas, and then there is Best Beloveds birthday, and fathers’ day and so on …..
But the hands they have won. This will be a pattern for long arm warmers, medium length arm warmers (to the elbow), and short length hand & wrist warmers all with a feather and fan lace on either end or the length of the piece, you can choose. Sounds simple and yes it is.
Feather and Fan is simple lace created with k2tog and YO, (Knit 2 stitches together and Yarn Over eyelets). It is knitted in the round so there are no P rows (Purl rows). perfect
Oh, did I forget to say it – this beret is a more of a slouchy. I am not exactly sure what the definition of a slouchy is, but the body of this hat is is big enough to wear over the head and is the right size around the band to also wear as a beret as in the photo. Both these designs are suitable for using up your stash. A very important consideration and useful for Christmas gift knitting. The fingerless gloves took about 90 gms of double knitting and the hat took 1 x 50 gm ball also of double knitting yarn and some oddments.
