  1. Hi there. I am looking for the tutorial called 2014/09/tutorial-attaching-i-cord-edging-to.html. I typed the web address in and I was directed to a page saying that this particular page was unavailable. I purchased the kit for the lovely Ridgefield Wrap at Silent Valley Alpaca. I'm not ready to knit the I-cord yet, but I'm reading through the pattern.

    1. Megan,
      Thanks for alerting me to the missing link. It's been added. I'm so glad you've purchased the kit. The yarn is so gorgeous!

  2. I followed a link here for your "Joggless Garter Stitch and Welts" tutorial but it shows page not found and I can't find it in the list above. Has it been renamed, or removed completely? Thanks

    1. Sorry, I only came across your question today. The tutorial has been removed from the list. It had essentially the same content as the Ravelry pattern and so was redundant.
