    So much inspiration!

    I need more than 24 hours in a day, more than 1 pair of hands and a knitting godmother who waves her wand and yarn appears… sigh

    Goodness you have some beautiful colourwork patterns. What would you recommend for a beginner?

      Hi Florene – something like our Compass or Mountain Mist patterns would be great for a beginner sweater, or you can always start with a hat to ease in!
