ISLAND // Pre-Release

I have designed a line of patterns that flow together, all of them inspired by life on this gorgeous island. My idea was to create a manageable number of designs to take you through the season. One of each of all of the essentials: a cowl, scarf, hat, fingerless mitts, and cardigan. The collection was created with the intention of having photographer Nicholas Kupiak and his lovely muse Kylee Shaw take you on a journey through a day in the life on our Island. With the incredibly talented Shannon Cook on board, we were able to transform this photographic journal and collection of patterns into a beautiful book. I have always wanted to display my patterns in such a visually rich format, this project is that dream come to life, and I am so thrilled to finally share it with you.

But before I give too much away, Shannon has put together a preview of the book, so turn up the volume and come on a journey with us while we walk you through the pages of this soon-to-be-released collection...




Pre-Release
A limited number of copies will be available exclusively at Knit City this Saturday and Sunday so come by and get your advance copy!

Full details on the book and its patterns will be made available after the pre-release at Knit City.
