Dear Sir/Madam,  I am very interested in the Baby Christening Set, gown, bonnet and socks......My question to you is how can i do this set with 2 straight needles..........Not circular.......My next questions is how do i get the pattern.......the size of needles are very hard to obtain here in Nelson. British Columbia or Calgary, Alberta......How do i get the proper straight needles to make this set......Could you please advise on pattern, and straight needles.......Do not want to do it in circular needles.....Can you send me the pattern for knitting on straight needles.......Can you do it on straight??????  Could you create a pattern for the baby christening set for straight needles.....Could you please send this to Eileen Lee who designed the set for baby christening set......Please advise me if you find out anything on creating the pattern for straight needles........Thank you  Linda Chapple
