I recognise the model on the front cover from a Purelife pattern book I have. Windswept's photography and styling are up to Rowan's always high standard. Believe me, you'll look at the patterns and want to knit everything. EVERYTHING. From my favourite, the cover jumper Dill, which has a pretty crochet neck trim, to the adorable fairisle sweater dress Sage, all the patterns have a timeless and slightly Scottish feel. They make me long for nippy days to throw on a wrap and beret, not the burgeoning Spring sunshine we have at the moment. Well almost anyway...

As I already have a long 'to knit' list, complete with patterns and yarns, Windswept is a book I'll add lovingly to my collection and pick up in a year or so when I'm looking for a new challenge. Here's hoping by then I'll be confident enough to knit Sage. Meanwhile in July Marie is publishing Lakeland, her second collection.
