Q&A with Jaknit

Krissmas asked:
Absolutely fabulous! I am sooooo impressed. Can't wait to start mine. Question: Why did you select Harrisville yarn?
Jaknit answered:
Honestly, it was because they had it in stock and in lots of colours so I went for it.... Friends told me it was great wool and I wanted to start switching right away. No regrets though I'm really pleased with it.
Sara-Zoë Furgason asked:
Love your colors..did you keep track of what there were?
Jaknit answered:
Yes... I taped small strands on the list of colours provided to keep track... Thanks!
