I just began knitting this wallet in a green yarn similar to the one you used. I'm so excited!! This is the first time I've done any crazy twists in my knitting so, thank you for that.
I'm wondering if it would be alright if I use your pattern and sell some of the wallets that I make. I recently graduated from college with an art degree and am looking to make some extra money. I love knitting and it seems like something fun to do to make some money. Plus, the wallet design that you made is marvelous. It it's not alright, I'd understand. Let me know!!
my email is threeyellowbirds@gmail.com if you want to contact me. I'll also send you a picture of my finished wallet.
Love, Erin
