Hello Mona and Joy, Your English is very good. Keep practicing. If you want to see the Coffee House sweater you can either use the search box in upper right hand corner or in the episode list go to episode #109, picture #5 (109-5). The Coffee House sweater is on the right-hand side of the picture on the mannequin-the green multi-color sweater. Not my cup of tea, perhaps in another color. Hope that helps! knitterchris in North Carolina

I always wanted to make something to wear with motif and the Maggie's Warp fits the bill perfect, can't wait to pick up the yarn and start on this wrap.

I raise alpacas and welcome the encouragement shows like this give to knitters - afterall only this way will the demand for yarn increase. I am originally from New Zealand where knitting was a "hand-me-down" skill shared by family and neighbours. I have started up my first such community group here in MI and hope to set up more of them for people to share and hand along these skills. Ruth MI

I was trying to download several of your wonderful patterns from Fiesta Yarns. Am quite disappointed that none of them have a picture of the project. I file these in my knitting binders - and need a picture to know if it's a project i want to attack or not! Any chance in the future? I don't get your TV program in my area. Cupertino, California

For some e-mail users, by going to the tool bar, chose "view", and then "view this msg as html", may also be a choice for seeing the pictures of projects. It worked for me. CgM

First I want to say thank you to Cora Shaw for the link to instructions for using the crochet symbols. I hope that helps you, Carole, and that it helps me, too! In the picture above with Robyn and Kim working on the Maggie Wrap cardigan it says the yarn is made by Tahki Stacy Charles. I visited the website but am confused about which particular yarn is used. Also, will any DK weight #3 yarn work for this wrap? Will I get an answer to my questions via email? Or from the "powers that be"? loopy

Hi Geri, thanks for sending a pdf pattern for Maggies Wrap and for your quick response. I had my hook and my lovely yarn ready .....until I notice there were only drawings of different types of motifs in this pattern - (triangle, half and partial grannies???) I dont know how to make it by just looking at a drawing.. I got confused with it. I've only been crocheting for 8 months and I need to "Read" instructions before i start on this wrap. Please send instructions to help:)) Lisa My email: lc@iinet.net.au

I too am disappointed that Maggies Wrap only has the crochet chart and not the written directions. While I can read them, I find them confusing and often loose my place.

littlechina: I had never worked from a chart before, but have found it really easy. I used the link posted by Cora Shaw to work out the symbols and the stitches. Then I studied the chart writing down the stitches in each round. I did a couple of test squares to get the hang of it. I am about half way through my wrap and can now see at a glance where I'm up to on the chart. It really is much easier than I anticipated. I finally got the hang of the joining...it did take a bit of trial and error to get it right. Hope this helps.
