Oh the irony of posting a review of a knitting book for hats and scarves etc on what is forcast to be the hottest day of the year, but then there is nothing like being prepared for the forthcoming seasons and planning your accessories for the autumn/winter to come.
A Good Yarn is by Katherine Poulton, model and knitter. Alongside her friend (and also top model) Lily Cole, they have founded The North Circular which aims to change the way that ethical knitting is seen. Between them, they have produced A Good Yarn, a book with 30 patterns for hats, scarves, socks and gloves, knitted, in dare I say it, gorgeous (but pricey) wool.
