In the New Year I’m going to be taking all my patterns offline for an extended period so I can re-do layouts, photography, some samples and reorganise my store to take into account new tax laws applicable in the EU from 1st January.
The patterns won’t be available for quite a while so if you want to grab anything do so now!
All patterns are 25% off until midnight on 26th December (no coupon needed) after which they will be deactivated for a while. Here’s the store: http://www.ravelry.com/stores/patricia-martin-designs

Knit Now magazine is working with a team of designers to produce a collection of Marvellous Mittens to support the Roald Dahl Marvellous Children’s Charity. This is the first release from this collection.
Roald Dahl is famous for his stories and rhymes that still spark children’s imaginations today. Much less well known, however, is how he often went out of his way to help seriously ill children – reading at hospital bedsides and even helping to buy special wheelchairs that parents couldn’t afford themselves.
Roald Dahl’s Marvellous Children’s Charity continues this fantastic work by providing nurses, equipment, carers and toys to help make life that little bit better for seriously ill and disabled children living with life-long neurological and blood
Whilst you can download the pattern for free please consider donating to this very worthy cause via the link here
