Kim Hargreaves

WHY oh WHY must you do THIS to me....

Do you know how much I love your designs?? Really I DO. Rowan has pretty much withered in my estimation since you left. (We all KNOW there is no way in HELL you would have let a Magazine go out styled like Rowan 39- and we all know I was joking about that wearing kilts and crazy shit on your head being anything BUT a fashion FAUX PAS) I am also starting to get this much closer to well... buying one of the hated kits. I call them hated as I really would rather just have the pattern and use a different yarn. But no. You sell kits and ONLY kits. Kits I might mention that could use more in terms of colour or yarn choice and can carry a hefty price.

Even worse... I have a line up to get through people. . I HAVE to finish the itsy bitsies. Then and only then can I start to think of the Spring line up, which already is pretty full... Being that I have put Somewhat Cowl in as the first hitter, followed by close tie between Cutaway (which is kind of in the lead) and Lara... after which I can't decide if I should add this divine sweater or this one? Or just well impale myself on my needles.

It is evident I do not live in reality. It has only taken me 4 months to get close to finishing a CHUNKY knit sweater. Yet for the spring runway season (which with the Ides of March being in oh... 20 days- 20 days that are mostly commited to the bitsies (and not so bitsy- being Salina) that starts what??? NOW... here I am listing 5 sweaters I want to knit (I guess I am not mentioning finish or wear so that might help 1. take off some the pressure and 2. notch up the insanity.)

Sweet Jesus... like I need more things to make. I really should just stop looking but well, who doesn't like to watch a trainwreck when it is dressed so prettily?? So in short. Thanks... Now please for the love of all good yarns- sell your patterns or make a pattern book. THAT I will fork out money for with out thinking twice. 55 quid for a sweater... that makes me balk a bit- especially when I am under constraints on my choices. Unless of course you will finish the sweater for me and then I will give you my plastic for that price in a heartbeat!

Holy Cow, I can't believe you just did that to me! I want to make ALL of those sweaters!

I SO agree with you - Rowan has deteriorated since Kim left. And I saw her new line last week, and want to knit them all.......

The thing is.... I want them to actually look good on me. Is that too much to ask?
