Elvis Robertson's eye for fibery lovelies is joyfully time sucking! The sweet shop "Loop" was high on my list of places to go before, but Elvis' article has cemented my trekking plans to Islington.
While on the road-- and a wee bit homesick-- I will be dropping by a new site that will certainly enable my obsessive ardour for hard to find out of print patterns! Patternfish is the knit juicy brainchild of Julia Grunau. Julia is the most "knit passionate" person I know!! Her love for the craft and respect for the designers that make knitting exciting is uplifting. With Patternfish she and her talented crew are able to share the passion with all of us.
Kudos Prime Minister Julia!!
This is the latest "Style Series" collaborative effort of Pam Allen and Ann Budd.
