Cathy, I just love looking over your blog. Everything you post is wonderful. I hope you don't mind if I use one of your patterns. (If you do please let me know). I want to make the Blustry Day Scarf. I have never knitted a scarf in the round before and this pattern would make a great scarf for my cousin. I look at all the things you make and thing that you have got to be a very fast knitter. Thank you for letting this knitter droul all over your blog. What an inspiration you are to all knitters. (knitnut08 on rav)

I have posted my patterns here on my blog, free of charge to share so others can knit them up for their personal use. So long as you don't reprint or sell the pattern as your own or anything made from the patterns, you may use the patterns to knit items for your personal, gift or charity donation use. Enjoy!

happy knitting,
