Questions I Would Imagine Would Be Frequently Asked, Had I Not Preempted Them

Important Informational Links:
Copyright Notice - copyright information appears on every page of every pattern I publish. This information, as well as a link to an explanation in plain English, is also available in any blog post containing a pattern link. I've tried to make my terms of use as clear and easy to find as possible, as downloading my patterns constitutes acceptance of them. My terms are very standard, but if you feel strongly that you need to use my pattern other than how I currently allow you to, just email me. I don't bite, and I'll make exceptions in some cases. :-)

Errata - so far just for the hot water bottle cozy. A link to the errata page will also appear on the page of any pattern that has errata.

1) How does purchasing from your site work?
As of now, the only pattern for sale is Bluebonnets. Clicking the "buy now" button will take you away from my site to PayPal. There you can pay in a secure online environment either with a PayPal account or with a credit card, debit card or bank transfer. You do not have to have a PayPal account to purchase from my site, even though you will do so through PayPal! If you are a member of Ravelry, you can also buy my patterns through my Ravelry store

After your purchase, you will receive an email with an expiring link to download the pattern PDF. The link will expire 30 minutes after the first time it's used, so be sure to save the file!  The "download here" links on my free patterns automatically begin downloading the pattern files - you do not have to enter any information or leave my site.

2) What kind of pattern support do you offer?
First and foremost, should any errata appear for a pattern you've purchased, I will notify you via email. In addition, if you have any questions about the directions in the pattern, please email me, and I'll try to clarify. I can't teach you how to knit, but I can help you understand what I've written. Same deal with patterns you've downloaded for free, except I don't send out errata updates. You'll have to check back here yourself if something seems wrong.

3) If I can't read your pattern before I buy it, how do I know it's any good?
Being a member of Ravelry or another online knitting forum helps. Here's what you do know: All of my for-sale patterns (and some of my free patterns) will be either test-knit or professionally tech edited, to catch as many mistakes as possible before publishing. Errata will be posted promptly if and when they're found. All for-sale patterns will include a list of skills involved, so you know what you're getting into before you shell out cash for it. Sorry, no refunds.

4) How long do you hold onto my email address, and what do you do with it?
When you purchase one of my patterns, you'll be asked to enter your email address.  I hold onto it indefinitely, and I do two things with it: I send you the pattern you've purchased, and I notify you of errata, should they occur. That's it. I'll never send you emails about blog updates, sales, etc, and I'll never give your emails (or any other information) to third parties.

5) Can I use a picture from your site?
Email me for permission, and we'll talk. Many pictures (particularly in patterns) were taken by people other than myself and used with permission. In these cases, I can't give you permission to use them, but I can put you in touch with the photographer.

6) What is your nameless husband's name?
I'm not telling, but if you're very clever, you can figure it out. *smiles coyly*
