Kettle Yarn Co. on Pomcast!

I was super chuffed (literally my very British, but very genuine, response) when the lovely Lydia and Sophie from Pom Pom Quarterly’s podcast invited me to be interviewed for their most recent Pomcast a few weeks ago.

You can catch the interview and listen to more of the ladies’ lighthearted banter on their site (and Lydia’s great laugh!!) 😉

Make sure you check out the images from the beautiful new autumn issue as well and download your digital copy now! It is a real stunner:

They’ve also got some great stuff in their shop, like this tote bag that I got at Unwind!

Thanks again, ladies. It was good fun!

The Knitter reviews Islington…

Got a bit of a thrill last week as I got to see a review of ISLINGTON in the latest issue of UK knitting magazine, The Knitter – Issue 74!

It is quite humbling to see the calibre of the other yarns on the same page and I am truly relieved that the author seemed to like my baby as much as I do.  😉

Here is the review:

The issue has some beautiful summer patterns and this one caught my eye immediately…can anyone figure out why…  (shhhh Jo and Gail!)

…apparently chevrons never get old for me! My eye always seems to pick them out and get drawn to beautiful patterns with a bit of chev.  ;-B

This design would even look stunning a little bit heavier in ISLINGTON, new BEYUL or even HEATH for a woolier version come September. Wouldn’t that be gorgeous? The seed stitch chevrons would pop even more and it would be the best layering piece come winter! Mmmm.

Here is another funny thing – I was setting up this blog post and it wasn’t until I went to copy the link for this pattern that I realised I met the lovely designer, Jennie Atkinson, at Fibre East! What a wonderfully small world.
