Hello everyone

I joined this site today, and am so impressed! I have been knitting for most of my life, and have made countless aran sweaters - I also worked for a wool shop in Belfast in Northern Ireland, making garments to order. I love being creative, and have recently turned my hand to designing patterns.

I saw a post on here where people were looking for a knitting pattern (as opposed to crochet) for barefoot sandals for babies, so got to work and here is my offering:

I've also designed a two-needle snowboarding hat for those who don't care for knitting with circular needles (me included!)

If anyone has any ideas that they would like to see in a pattern, but just can't find (like the handknit barefoot sandals), please let me know!

Huggable Bears
Hi, my name is Pat/Gypsycream. I design bears and other softies. I started designing bears when I couldn't find a sweet and easy pattern to follow so decided to to design my own.

A dear friend was undergoing treatment for cancer and was in need of a hug but she was too far away for me to hug her, so I designed my first bear, Huggable Bear, and sent it to her with a little note saying "I've been sent to give you a hug". She was so thrilled and said it felt like I was there to give her a much needed hug. So I started knitting and designing more bears and sending them out to friends and family in need of a hug. People started asking for my designs so I wrote them up and now sell them, the funds I raise I give to my favourite charity for rescue cats, its where I adopted my lovely cat, Freddie, from.

All my designs can be found here:

and here:

They are emailed to you in a PDF format for instant download.

There are some free patterns, sweaters for some of the bears, step by step photographic construction instructions for bear, puppy and kitty. If you don't see the free download please email me and I'll send it to you. Or if you need help or advice about your pattern please email me and I'll do my best to help you.

Opening Etsy shop for mom: bjoux.L Accessories
Hey everyone! Just found this forum and im finding so much cool info and personal projects, it's awesome! I wanted to post here because my mother is recently retired and has been spending a lot of time knitting things up. Whenever she takes her handmade knitted iphone/smartphone cases out, she gets plenty of looks and compliments, almost on a daily basis because they look so different from everything else out there. Anyways, my mother is technology-illiterate so I decided to take the initiative and open up an etsy shop for her. Here are a few of her works.. hope to become a part of this community, thanks for looking and have a great day!
