      Hi Fira,
      Thank you for the request – I will add it to my project list. Winter is heading to most of our country so it will be 2018. Stay tuned…

    Denise, I have been a follower of yours since 2014. Recently, our group has tried to loom knit a cradle and blanket for Bridget’s Cradles, an organization that makes cradles for second trimester babies who have not made it in this world. There are looming directions, but I was wondering if you could put a video together explaining the cradle creation in more detail. If you go to bridgetscradles.com you will see what I am talking about. My club would really appreciate any help you can give us. Thank you!!!

      Amy, THANK YOU – thank you for introducing me to this group. I have contacted them for a copy of the pattern and permission to do the video. Right now I’m not doing videos of other designers patterns but this one is soooooooooo important that if they agree I will put off other projects and do the video.
