This a fantastic list – and the best pattern/tutorial information you have had on your site in a long time – thank you so much for labeling all the pictures clearly with all the links to the actual objects! Now to go start on a couple of those hats and adorable baby booties!

Thanks for all the awesome “guide to”s you’ve been putting together kathreen – they’re so great! Also, I love the new banner and site look, strikes me as “modern handmade”. Very nice.
