I find it really difficult because of all the ads Before one get to the instructions for the patterns. I realize people need to make a living but can’t you put them at the end instead of them disbursed between everything it’s really too bad because then I get frustrated and don’t look at your ads or the knitted instructions I’m a Florida girl too. But an old one who is frustrated with and not computer literate Changing the format would really help. Thanks for listening!!!

Hi Ina, I do not get to choose the placement of my ads. I understand they might be too distracting for some which is why I offer all of my patterns for purchase without the ads :) Thanks for understanding.
