    I am trying to access the subscriber benefits library and it is not accepting my password, although I have previously subscribed. (This may very well be operator error.) I don’t see a place to reset a password, nor to unsubscribe and then subscribe again. Can you please give me information about resetting my password so that I may access your knitting patterns? Thank you very much.

    I have subscribed to every page you have requested and I still do not get a reply from you with a pass code to register with your site. I keep checking my spam and junk mail and it is not there either.

    Thank you for the Knit Eyelet Baby Blanket! This exactly meets my needs when “itty bitties” are on the way and a quick gift is needed!
    Also, I’m trying to subscribe and can’t find the sign up area on your site!
    As an IT professional, this is most embarrassing!
    But, it’s Friday and I am looking forward to a weekend with freshly groomed puplets, painting our sunroom, knitting and diamond painting!
    Thank you again Lynn!

      Debra…First off…thanks so much for the heads up about my subscription box! Not sure what caused it to disappear, but I cleared the blog cache and it is back now! I really appreciate you letting me know.

      And you are so welcome for that blanket! Isn’t it just the sweetest!? I keep saying I am going to start a stash, but of course, I haven’t done it yet.

      And ‘freshly groomed puplets’ just may be my most favorite phrase I’ve heard in a long time, not to mention one of my most favorite little beings. Enjoy!

      But I do have a question…what is diamond painting?

      Thanks again for letting me know of my missing subscription box.

      Many hugs, Lynn
