Comments may have been edited for space constraints.
I wanted to let you know how much I'm enjoying
my recent order. The lace needles are even more beautiful than the picture could
possibly show; the lace scarf kit colors are even more exquisite than I thought;
the patterns easy to follow; and the sheep pin, well, as a lover of sheepy
things, what can I say? Thank you so much for getting this order to me so
quickly. The items are wonderful and I will most certainly order again!
I enjoy your website and especially the
newsletters; I always feel like you're a close friend writing to me, you know,
those special fiber-friends.

Jackie, thank you! I can't tell you how excited
I am about the patterns and how eager I am to start working them! I just can't
The pattern is wonderfully well written with
all the detail I love to have and rarely get from a published

Might I also say that your shawl patterns are
masterpieces, and your patterns are a real inspiration to all of us ... go crazy
whenever a shipment of your patterns arrive! [at our local yarn store] You're

Hi Jackie, I just had to write and say how very
beautiful I think your work is. It's like eye candy. Sometimes I go to your web
site just to look at all the pretty, pretty things. Thank you for sharing it. No
reply needed, I just sometimes like to tell folks when something they've done
Thanks a bunch. We can't wait to let our
customers see the cool stuff. I can't believe ... arrived so

helpful and kind as you.

Your patterns look great! ... It is nice to
receive a personal e-mail.
Mosaic Yarns, shop owner
[with reference to patterns for
garments] I showed the pattern to my LYS owner who immediately bowed down to
kiss your feet. She loved that you spelled out in a block on the first page all
the things the knitter would be doing. She says she spends so much time reading
through patterns to answer questions like, "Will I have to pick up stitches" or
"Is it knit in the round?"
Annie H. in Georgia
A thousand thank you's, Jackie!
Ann, owner of Elann
Many thanks for your very quick reply! We
really appreciate your generosity in sharing your patterns.You are certainly a
talented designer and I enjoy knitting your patterns.
Peggy G. in California
Thanks for your lovely email and all your
answers... I received the patterns in the mail today, thank you , thank you. Now
I don't know just what I will start first ... I do love the patterns, and thank
you for getting them here so fast.

I am merrily knitting away on the Ribbed
Diamonds Man's Vest. What a marvelous pattern! Enough patterned knitting to be
interesting, but such a well designed pattern that it can be carried around,
too! I love how the pattern comes right up from the ribbing and how the V neck
follows the Vs in the pattern. And I love that each pattern change has a 4 row
repeat for mindless knitting. It's a joy to knit. Thank you so much.

finished your Shetland Patterned Faroese Shawl and I wanted to say how happy I
was with both the pattern and the result. The shawl is gorgeous in dark blue
shetland jumper weight. The pattern was clear and easy to follow and the charts
were very! easy to read. I've only been knitting for about a year and a half,
but I had no difficulty following the instructions. In particular I liked the
decrease chain stitch ... and the cast off which left a ! very flexible edge. It
looked great with the slipped stitch selvage I used for the body of the shawl -
like a single crochet around but without the bother. Thanks again.

I received the patterns I ordered and they are
really wonderful. I started the Pendants shawl and it is gorgeous. The patterns
are really clear and easy to follow. I also like the fact that the charts are
all big and easy to read. Am enclosing a check and order for some more Glad I
found you. Thanks.
Stephanie M. in NY
Hi Jackie--I have started your pendants shawl
and it is a joy to knit from your excellent charts.

I am almost finished with my first sock! It
fits SO well and I dearly love the heel...it is just GRAND! ... It's just so
Carol G. in FL
I just wanted to drop you a short
note regarding the toe to cuff lace rib socks. I really enjoyed doing the
pattern which I made out of a sort of tweedy Patons yarn. Your directions were
so clear that it made those tricky little increases so easy. You sure can't tell
that this sock was done in reverse. This was a fun sock to try.
Nancy W. in Wisconsin
A pattern I just bought "Toe to Cuff Lace Rib
Socks" and the pattern is a dream to work.
Did you hear that the shawl I made (Cascading
Hearts) won a blue ribbon at the State Fair? ... So, we did good.

I finished my first toe to cuff sox on the bus
ride to work today, sized for my three year old granddaughter. Teal blue soft
and shiny - cute cute cute. I "had to" turn that heel over and over for a few
days but every other step was easy-pleasy even the math! No more toe sewing for
a while. For some reason I just cant get the kitchener stitch to work, but with
this I can give my baby sox for every outfit. Thanks again.

currently working on (and almost finished) the All-Over Lace Faroese Shawl in
Slate Icelandic laceweight yarn. I have about 40 rows left, and I am enjoying
knitting this so very much, I had to write to thank you for such a beautiful
pattern. This shawl is an absolute delight to knit too, and thanks to you, I can
read charts (my first attempt at this) without being scared to death about it :)
Thanks again Jackie... I LOVE your work, and hope to be able to get more of your
shawl patterns very soon.
Wow Jackie!! The Lace and Ribs sweater is just
a knockout- Well done!!!
Happy knitting, Julie
Well, my FIRST Oak Leaf is done and I can
already see that this is going to be an addictive pattern. Really, it is a very
clever little piece of lace knitting and I enjoyed doing it very much. Thanks
again for such a "neat" pattern.
Yours in knitting, Jennifer T. in Israel
I can see from the posting on your web site
that you're on the road right now but I just wanted to say how much I really
enjoy your web site. Keep up the good work and I'll enjoy visiting your site
Meg C. in Massachusetts
The pattern has been so easy to understand and
follow ...It's amazing how difficult it is to proofread patterns, especially
ones you've charted yourself. Yours are amazingly
