“Just for fun, I’m including the list of Wallaby’s I’ve knit. Since 1999 I’ve knit eight Wallaby’s—two for babies, one for a seven-year-old, another for a twenty-five-year old, three for significant others and one for myself.”
(Some of the following comments were received about the ‘original’ Wonderful Wallaby, Copyright 1984. The new Wallaby (2016) pattern is nearly identical, the difference is the addition of fourteen diagrams and full color centerfold.)

“Your patterns are the best. My daughter and I have made over two dozen Wallaby’s and are teaching it to both new and seasoned knitters. We’re going to make some samples of your other patterns to see what we might teach next. Thank you.”
Nancy Z., Amherst, OH
