Feedback:

"Thank you so much for the pattern. I'm looking forward to trying it out for a friend's little boy who is crazy about Frozen.Thanks too for such an excellent service." 

"My two-year-old grandson LOVES all kinds of diggers, so I’ll be excited to get started on this new sweater for him.  It’s by far the best pattern I’ve found for a “digger sweater.”"

"I just got the patterns from you and I wish to thank you for the great service. I loved the speed you replied to my order and I found it very nice that you immediately removed my ordered patterns from the website. Also, the patterns themselves are so nice! Besides I am going to work on them, they remind me my childhood times somehow…"

"Received the pattern today, thank you for sending so quickly!,  Lovely pattern and great condition, I'll keep a look out on your website from now on, very happy."

"Thank you for handling everything so efficiently.  The pattern arrived safely yesterday and the recipient is delighted."

"Thank you, I will look forward to knitting that for my grand daughter, I knit that for my daughter many years ago. I remember it was from a magazine but never thought I'd see it again."

"Thank you for an excellent service. Can’t wait to see little chaps face when they are finished."

"I have finished the Red racing car jumper for my friend's little boy. When he saw it he squealed, hugged it and jumped up and down on the spot. I am not sure they can get it off him now to wash it!"

"I had such fun looking through the knitting patterns as my mum made a fair few when I was a child, they brought back lots of memories!"

"Thank you for sending the knitting patterns so speedily. They arrived safely this morning and I am very pleased with them. Your prompt responses and overall dealing with the transaction have been first class and I look forward to possibly trading again in the future - after I've finished a little knitting I have to do!"

"Thanks - can't wait to knit it - it's the same I knitted for my son - 25 years ago !! - now I'm going to knit it for his baby who's due in July."

"I knitted the blanket for my son 25 years ago and he still has it on his bed! Have lost the pattern so was delighted to eventually find it through you. Knitting it for my great niece/ nephew due in December."

"Many thanks - my mum will be really pleased - she knitted the willow pattern jumper probably 30yrs ago for me and now plans to knit one for my daughter!!"

"I knitted this pattern many years ago, and said I would knit one for my daughter, but somehow lost the pattern. I was so pleased to find the pattern on your website."

"I would like to wish you really good luck with your web site. I spent some very enjoyable time looking through it. Lots of happy memories, including a pattern for knitting mitts that I remember was really popular when I was at school!"

"Thanks – gloves for my grandchildren – so difficult to find glove patterns – loads of mittens but no gloves! Your website was a godsend."

"I have received the patterns and can't wait to get started. Will look at your site before hitting the shops in future!"
