  1. Very pretty but did you say quick?

  2. I have been looking for this book. Where did you buy it? I can’t even find it on e-Bay.

  3. I don’t remember where I got it, unfortunately. In a second-hand store somewhere in the Pacific Northwest in the past ten years or so.

  4. I would love to buy a pair of boots featured in ur book to wear this winter ^_^

  5. And I would love to sell you some boots, Tim. Unfortunately, I probably wouldn’t finish knitting them until some time next summer.

  6. Can you make color copies of this “Snow Sets” knitting booklet for me and others? I don’t believe copyright is still applicable. Please let me know asap.

  7. I’d be interested in getting these patterns too. Any chance of a scan/e-book/other?

  8. Hi Kirstin and Linda,

    Sorry for not responding sooner. Been quite busy. I’ll try to find time to scan at least a few more patterns from the book in the next couple of weeks.


  9. These designs are fabulous, thank you for sharing.

  10. Gorgeous :) I really love colourwork knitting :)

  11. I’d be VERY interested as well if you could scan some mittens patterns, my daughter just would like me to knitt one pair !!!!
    I just check the internet but obviously the book seems unavailable ;)
    Happy Christmas to all !

  12. Hi Aurélie,

    The whole book, including mittens, is posted here:

  13. Any possibility that you could scan and post the instructions for the Brownie mittens pattern with the dog on them? I would love to knit this mittens but can’t locate a copy of the booklet.

  14. Hi Betty. I’ll try to find it and get it scanned for you in the next few days.

  15. Thanks.

  16. Hi Betty,

    I can’t find any brownie mittens with a dog on them in this book. It must be from some other collection.

  17. Thanks for looking. It is listed as in that booklet on ravelry. Guess Ravelry was wrong.
