We just received a really lovely new testimonial about our patterns from Pat from Seattle:
I just wanted to thank you for writing such great patterns. Like kissing frogs before you find your prince, I have kissed a few other patterns. Then I found your “prince of patterns”.
I have recently ripped out a sweater for my husband that was half way finished and began again using a Knitting Pure and (magically) Simple pattern. What a difference! I have even learned to trust your patterns. While working on the Baby Vest I tried to convince myself that I needed to reverse the SSK’s and the K2tog’s on the second armhole. I put it all down, worried about it for 2 days then finally went back in a quiet house with a sharper mind and realized that the pattern was exactly correct. I will never try to out-think a Diane Soucy pattern again.
When I approached the picking up stitches stage I found a video on Youtube made by Jimmy Beans, and walla! there you were, taking me by the hand to the next step.
Knitting should be fun. It should produce an item you are proud of and that your loved ones will wear. It should all be able to be done in THIS lifetime. Therefore, my hats off to you for making our dreams come true.
Thank you, Pat! (Knitters, please feel free to send in your feedback about our patterns, too. We love hearing from you!).
