I asked the lovely (and now famous – check out her pretty flower brooch pattern in the Spring supplement of Simply Crochet Issue 16!) Rachel to knit a little something with Vinni’s Colours Nikkim and tell us about her experience. I really, really, really like her knitted washcloths! So much that I think I may just knit up a couple of yarn swatches for each of the yarn shades. Yes. I said it. Knit. And yes, I do own a pair of knitting needles and I can knit. Now you know my Deep Dark Secret.

At the bottom of Rachel’s review is a 10% discount code to use in my Etsy shop. You know you want to…

Thanks again Rachel for your great review and giving us your honest opinion and congratulations again on the great achievement of being a Published Crochet Pattern Writer.
