Lovely inspirational book, will make many of the items in it
The Sea Issue
This is very artistic stylist magazine with some lovely ideas and patterns in it -
Wool and no pattern
I bought the complete project and anticipated that it would include the pattern....my mistake ! I had to go back and buy the pattern book and incur additional postage . It’s an idea to check this out before completing the purchase.

The book was very interesting good articles and inspiring I would like to make the wave shawl but you are out of stock,of the pack; I have requested you let me know when the packs are in stock
A great new find and easy to work with
Apart from an initial hesitation about colours I was very pleased when it arrived. I am using it with Rowan 4ply cotton to produce a subtle mottled effect. It is vital however to check yardage etc. to ensure you have enough to finish the item, in the amount you order if you are substituting yarns as I was. .
