    Thank you for reblogging this – I have a bit of a girl-crush on Kate, and I think this story needs to be broadcast far and wide!

  2. OH my Bob! She is my hero!

    Thanks for the alert! I’m sure glad I’m on your integrity team. Now I have to buy it since I’d downloaded it for free. Keep ’em honest!

    Maybe she can get the British media interested in the story. Especially as her sweater looks so much better than the Debenham’s version. Theirs looks like it was pieced together out of yarns that really aren’t that appealing for apparel — more like something I’d expect to be used for a bathroom rug.

    I’m definitely going to keep an eye on her blog for either a.) a garment or accessory styled for men or b.) an afghan or throw that lends itself to machine-washable yarns. (Yes, I know natural wool can make a beautiful throw. However, I don’t have the desire to hand-wash one nor the room to block one!)

  5. Hi, I’ve read your blog for quite a while now, and wanted to tell you that Debenhams has agreed to give L5000 to the charity of Kate’s pick, due in large part to several hundred complaints lodged by us outraged knitters. I’d read her blog, and upon reading your repost of her post, I decided to email those boogers, too. I love how sassy us knitters have been lately, what with the Olympics, the knitter at Wimbledon, and our collective b*tch slapping of a thieving retailer. Go us!
