The Answer Lady
is Kathryn Doubrley. I write about the things that I love most and do best. If you are a machine knitter, gardener, herb enthusiast or seamstress, we may already be acquainted. Perhaps we have met at seminars. You may have read my articles. This website is a place where we can keep in touch and a marketplace for pubications hot off The Answer Lady Press. The tools and yarns I enjoy most are also for sale here, in case you like them too. I am available for demonstrations at knitting and gardening events by arrangement. If you have a machine knitting question, you may e-mail the address above and I'll try to help.
A word about copyright A copyright means that only the person holding it has the right to distribute the work in any form whatsoever. For the books and patterns on this site, that means that you may make as many copies as you need for your own personal use. I know that I make notes on mine, spill on them lose them and print myself more. You may do so as well. I also permit readers to produce knitted items and sell them using my patterns. Passing on the patterns in any form is the prohibited action. I think most of my customers respect that fact and understand that if copyright is breached, it soon becomes un-worthwhile for designers to publish. If you are working for a charity, have a scout troup or some such thing, contact me privately. I often give special permission for such situations. If I do, it will be accompanied by a letter that you should save, formally granting you an exception so that there will never be a question of propriety.
Introducing "Ask Jack"
The Answer Lady doesn’t know everything. Sometimes I have to ask Jack. Jack is my husband. His experience and expertise in all kinds of mechanical endeavors make him my first and best source of help when a mechanical question arises. Now you can ask Jack, too. E-mail him with your mechanical questions using this form.
PU-LEEZ remember to include your e-mail address. We have no way of reaching you without it and we get queries all the time from knitters who forgot to include it. If you have not heard back from us, that is why. Please try again WITH address this time
