Hi everyone, Was just on reading about Christmas and presents and i see some of you are looking (as i was ) free knitting patterns and there is a site called Knitting Patterns@Knitting-and.com
It has free patterns to download for some dolls clothes and a teddy a wee christmas stocking for the tree, and another wee thing to knit to hang on the c/tree which is cute too, is the i-cord wreathThere are coloured photos too and i have just printed some i fancy doing myself so i hope this is a help to you and of course it is free so Martin will be proud we are all listening Oh before i forget thanks to Martin's e-mail i went on to play .com and have ordered 2 MP3 players for 12.99 each for Christmas pressies and thanks to someone on the site i have also got some really cheap gifts in Boots(online) and am going to buy some wee baskets and do some individual hampers for the family. Thank you everyone
Do a little kindness every day.
