Advance praise for Bargello Knits:
When Patty first showed me a sample sweater in her new technique, bargello knitting, I was immediately impressed, commenting that “I love how the colors resolve themselves.” I saw a deep connection to my own explorations in hand-dyed yarn, and felt a kinship to someone who had spent a great deal of time developing and following a specific thought. — Laura Bryant, Prism Arts, Inc.
There is a moment when someone walks into your life and you just know that it is meant to be…. It is incredible to see Patty’s vision come to life not just for her but for everyone who will now share in her gift to the knitting world. — Barry Klein, Trendsetter Yarns
