Jane is my friend.
I am proud to know her.
She is a remarkable woman.
Each year, for Woolfest she has designed a pattern for my yarn - this is not why she is remarkable, by the way, but it does illustrate her generosity of spirit.
It's the sort of pattern which becomes a classic.
Last year she gave us the Pick'n'Mix sock pattern.
With a pretty picot edge, and a selection of other variations in cuffs, heels, toes and colourwork.
And the year before she designed the Spiral Sock pattern.
This year, I thought it was about time she had her own yarn.
I can't wait to see what she does with them.
PS There may also be a laceweight yarn to join the p j collection, in the same colourway. In fact there may be a whole range of Summer Collection laceweights soon.
