Love all the patterns. I’m disabled and have a lot of time and crocheting passes the time. The hard part for me is that I have to copy all the patterns by hand as I don’t have a printer. Thank you so much for all the different ideas.

Hi Mary! I am glad you enjoy the patterns. May I ask you why you have to copy the patterns by hand? If you are using a computer you can save the page in a folder on your desktop. Also I have pdf versions of some of the patterns that I can send you through email if you would like. Just let me know which one you are interested in!
