A little boost

I decided to do somerhing positive during an enforced rest following an operation. I bought the sample sweater and have been thrilled with the kit and customer service. I lost my pattern (don't ask) and they sent me another by return of post. I was so touched by this.
The quality of wool and the kit is top notch. I love the softness of the wool and how beautifully it is knitting up.
I think i will be using tbis wonderful company again, for many years to come, for sure.


We love you, thank you so so much for a beautiful generous review. It has been a pleasure to deal with you throughout, and I am so glad you got the second pattern so quickly. The next news we want to hear is that your operation went well, and that you are back to 100% soon after, and ... after that ... a photof the finished sampler sweater!
