THANK YOU!!!!

Well there are just no words to explain how pleased I am with the response to the survey. You are all so amazing for taking the time to fill it out. The answers you have given me will really help in making a pattern book that crocheters actually want and I love that a lot of you think the same as myself about book that are around at the moment.

I've been crocheting odd little things recently and will post the patterns in the future for you all. Here is an especially cute pattern for to say thank you again:

  16. I am a rank beginner crocheter, (completed first dishcloth).
    I am always looking for something easy enough. This little guy looks worth a try.
    Will you be rating the skill levels necessary to do each pattern in your book? If so, I am looking forward to buying it.
    Thanks for all the free patterns, and the videos, Elizabeth
