    Hi, my name is Suzanne.

    I’m a 30+ year knitter. I learned to knit when I was a teenager because I wanted a fair isle sweater neither my family nor I could afford to buy.

    I bought a book, yarn, pattern, and needles and taught myself to knit and follow graphs. I got my sweater and I was very proud of myself.

    A few years later I took up counted cross stitch. Again I used graphs to make my projects. So I have some experience with graphs and reading them.

    I read your article and watched half of your tutorial this morning. I’ll watch the rest when I have the time. I think you did a fabulous job explaining how to read and follow graphs. What I saw should allow the watcher to pick up any graph and reproduce it in crochet, cross stitch or even knit.

    It’s been years since I’ve read and followed any graph, but I’m ready to tackle this type of project again when I have the time.

    I’ve promised my grandson and husband I would crochet (I just learned last September) them each a shark snuggle sack following your tutorial when I can afford the yarn. Thank you for that tutorial!

    I made the Faux Cable Cowl on Saturday following your tutorial. Your instructions helped me to make this item.

    Please don’t underestimate the value of your tutorials or the content you include. Sometimes us yarn enthusiasts just need to step outside of our comfort zone, trust in our abilities and try something new.

    Thank you for all that you and The Crochet Crowd do.

    Dear Mikey, I have never written to you before although I have followed you and Deva Dan for over a year. Just read your comment ( July 2 ) about the pillow. Many times I’ve gotten peeved about peoples’ comments to you- so many requests for details that are either available in your info or easily available with just a little effort. So many people seem to be lazy. They want EVERYTHING handed to them with no effort on their part. They are basically good people. I think it is just a sign of the times. Please don’t take it so personally. You do a fantastic job! If you cater to their every demand or complaint, you will just encourage them to continue. You can’t please everyone and don’t do yourself any favors blaming yourself. Look how it piles up on you over time.You do a magnificent service.. With love to you both from an old lady. Sue

    I should probably have put this on your web site
