    The knit pattern and yarn are lovely. I can certainly understand why your dear mum would hesitate to take on such a big project again! I would love to knit something like this in a sweater. Would you be able to share the yarn source and method for knitting in this patchwork pattern? I can’t quite work out how it is done.

    Thank you kindly,
    Layne B.

    Hello. Is this bag still available? When I tried to get the price for The United States it comes up as $0.07 & says it is the South African price?
    Please advise. Thank you, Debra D

    • Hi Debra, this kit is completely sold out. If I can ever persuade my mum to knit the backgrounds again, I will make more kits :)

      At the moment she is still recovering from the last batch that went out!

      Have a good day today.

      Kind regards
