Hi Helen,

I discovered your blog a couple of months ago, just before several short trips and a long trip to England. Now that I'm home I've had a chance to read your blog and I just can't get over how generous you are with the information, techniques, tutorials, and patterns you have posted over the years. Thank you very much.

Writing, belatedly, in response to your tutorial on the eyelet loop cast on, I wonder if you have ever considered starting the project on one of those little knifty knitter looms and then switching to dp needles. I am not (yet) a lace knitter and have only made a few hats, none on dp needles, but that seems like a very old fashioned solution to an ergonomics (most of us only have two hands) problem.

What do you think?

Thanks again for all you have shared,
