Throughout the years I’ve bought your books and patterns, and for the past couple of years I’ve been smitten with illusion knitting.  Thanks to you and Steve, I jumped into illusion knitting last year when my husband was very ill, and I spent most of my time in the hospital with him.  I bought the Elvis Presley wall hanging pattern and knitting it helped keep me sane during an extremely difficult time.  I worked the chart and then decided to turn my knitting into a tunic vest.  I showed the vest at Meg Swansen’s Knitting Camp last summer, and was careful to tell the group that the Elvis pattern was Steve’s and how I bought it, etc. I hope I did justice to Steve’s hard work and that you and he won’t be horrified!  

One of the photos was taken in a local barber shop. One day my husband wanted a haircut, and when the barbers saw Elvis, one of them took a couple of photos and sent them to me by e-mail. I like the way the back of the vest showed up in the mirror of the shop.  Please know how grateful I am to you both!
