      Wonderful and useful patterns and very generous of you to share them. I liked all of them but particularly liked the flower pillow and the cheeky monkey hat. I plan to make the flower pillow and when I have finished I will post a photo. Also the jar pin cushion topper is quite ingenious. I thought I knew all there was to know about pincushions but never thought of this excellent idea! It is true, one is never too old to learn. LOL. I recently showcased a variety of pin cushion ideas on my blog. May I direct people from my web page to “the green dragonfly” to view your wonderful patterns?
      I am about sustainable living and that very much includes making and repairing things by hand.

    hi Janette, your crochet tutorials are just fantastic! also love your kids craft ideas, your children must have a ball at home. Just wondering about the cotton yarn that you use for your crochet, do you know if it is available through the internet at all? it looks really lovely and not fuzzy like the cotton yarn that i have, the colours are brilliant. Love the dianthus top that you made, the colours look amazing. thanks so much for sharing.


      Janette responded:
      January 17, 2012 at 4:14 pm

      Hi Kirsty, its just a generic brand that I get from Spotlight. Ill look up the brand name for you and add it too.

    Wow, what an amazing website… Your creations are amazing and inspiring. My mom taught me to crochet at an early age, but of course, I didn’t pay attention. Now that I’m older and with a 3 1/2 daughter, have started to get back to it. I consider my self a beginner since, I didn’t pay attention way back when… I will try to do the hair ties for my daughter. Being a fan of dragon flies, I love the name of your website…

    I came across your blog when I saw someone share your Easter bunnies on Facebook. Your patterns are so pretty :-) I definitely plan on trying some of them. I noticed above one of the pictures you said people can have the patterns for their personal use. Does that mean you prefer people not sell what they make from your patterns?

    Hi Janette
    You have some lovely things on this site. I was wondering if I may sell anything I make. I will of course put labels crediting your patterns if I sell through any of our various markets around here, or link through if I sell through e-bay, Gumtree or maybe the Etsy shop I am trying to set up (trying being the operative word – having problems). I live in Australia in a little rural area. I am really looking forward to making the Rosy Posy Tea Cozy, Cheeky Monkey Hat and the Caity cat among others. So cute. Different too. Just what people look for. I don’t have a website of my own – wouldn’t know how to set one up

I have called him Weaver after The Sweaty Knitter, Weaver and Devotee of Other Fiber Arts . I got a lot of very helpful and interesting information about pattern reading and writing here but that’s not all! Check out the Yarn Pro 1.0 for iPhone app! No fiber artist would want to be without it.

    Just discovered your site and was amazed at all the things you offer. It is so sweet of you to offer your patterns for free as there are some people would not be able to make your wonderful items if they had to pay for each item, it leaves them with money to buy the yarn needed to make the items. It also encourges others to try more of your items. I am so glad I found you & will be following you. God bless.
