Anyone have any or know where you can get them in the US? There are some super cute ones I would love to have but can't find them!
There were some featured in Simply Knitting but unfortunately I missed out!

I have one of the simply knitting mags with a few animals in it- I'll see if I can find it in my stack. as I remember it was the first in the two part series. Sometimes I'm able to buy the Simply Knitting at Borders. Expensive, but I like the magazine and the style and the patterns. I couldn't find the second one there. I'll wander off to check my pile and pm you if I find it.

That's right DQ rub it in. Simply Knitting is released an issue behind the UK in the US, so they have only just put Issue 29 (June) on newsstands/book shops shelves.

I LOVE Alan Dart patterns - they always are so well-detailed. I bought the entire AD Wallace & Gromit set off of eBay, and let me tell you, it cost a pretty penny. I've mostly seen them on eBay, and almost always f/the UK. Lucky them *pout*.

Still, am thrilled to have the set, and can't wait to start knitting up Gromits and Shaun the Sheeps - and handing them over to friends, HA!! W/camera in hand, of course ;)

Sheesh, why can't we have them too?!
Anyone that can find his patterns in Simply Knitting I would LOVE them. I couldn't find them anywhere!

I was getting the Simply Knitting mag here in Canada and they've stopped using the supplier!!! Darn! I love the Alan Dart patterns too. I did see some on ebay last evening. Not sure where they were located. I have seen them at my lys to order, from Sirdar. Did you try their site??? samm

Hi DQ, I have just discovered alan dart and I love the patterns. I am happy to pay for any alan dart patterns that you have. Please PM me and hopefully we can sort something out

OOOH.. I want that pirate!

But, I want WALLACE AND GROMIT even more..

I adore them and found the videos 'before' they were well known in the states.

SO, is there anyway.. I can have WALLACE AND GROMIT? I've already asked SANTA and apparently he doesn't come to single adult's homes that don't have children living in them. :**(

AND, I don't even have a choice of paying 'big bucks' for this knitting magazine since I live in Korea.. wah.. wah..

I want Wallace and Gromit.. sob.. sob.. sob..
