    My son comes to me as I’m reading the pattern and said “Look mom knitting cans I love knitting cans!!” He likes the spike one. Since he is to small for cans I’ll have to make him one for his water bottle.

    Hey! My firewall program says your web page is a fraudulent web site known for phishing. No, I’m not kidding, and I’m shocked that anyone would think that of you! You’re so cool, after all! You might want to check with your web master to see why it’s turning up that way.

    Love the can cozies! I may have to make a few for little Christmas gifties!

    Hey Lisa –
    This is Jenny, Vickie’s web girl – was it the blog that was giving you the phishing message, or the web site? I had added a snaps feature to the blog to let you preview web sites before you click on a link – and I think that might be what was causing the red flag. I removed the feature. If anyone is still getting the message, please email me at jenny@websydaisy.com. Thanks!
