While the story is whimsey, the local color in old Phoenix is based on my real granmother's memories of her childhood there. click here to see the book on Amazon.

Ask Jack is joining The Answer Lady full time!

Jack is retiring from his work in the University of Georgia Engineering department. This means that he will have more time to devote to knitting machines. [yay]

If you have a machine that needs the attention of an expert, Jack will be happy to work on it for you. Please e-mail to discuss the matter using the new address on the contact info page.

Jack will still be happy to answer your mechanical questions and help you through your DIY machine maintenance projects as a courtesy service but we have found it necessary to remove the form that was on this page as spam-bots were having too much fun with it. He has a new e-mail address just for knitters. Find it on this page: contact info There is also a new, easier to use e-mail address for Kathryn on the contact page.

Jack has a page of his own. At present, it gives information about his favorite chemicals for machine care and where to obtain them. He will be working on the page adding more helps to it as time goes on. Ask Jack



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.
