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.
