Let's sit and read and knit!
Who doesn't love browsing through a beautiful book or magazine? Teaming up with publishers, working with their team and contributing a design to a carefully curated collection is one of my favourite parts of my work. Being featured along with other amazing, talented designers is such a great honour, and almost nothing beats the feeling of opening a copy of a publication I contributed to for the first time.
If you're into knitting & lifestyle publications as much as I am, I hope you'll enjoy the ones I worked with!
Hygge Sweater | Laine Magazine Issue 3
Jonna and Sini from Laine Magazine have created and extraordinarily beautiful magazine, perfectly capturing the inviting, Scandinavian lifestyle. I'm beyond thrilled to contibute my Hygge Sweater design to their third issue, and eagerly await its release. By the way: it's now available for pre-order! Hygge is knit out of Brooklyn Tweed's popular Shelter, and with a first design for it under my belt, I completely understand the fascination with this yarn. It's the perfect mix of rustic and soft, showcasing the geometric hem and cuffs details beautifully. Find the Ravelry page here.
Black Forest Cardigan | Making Stories WOODS
You'll find this cosy, warm cardigan in Making Stories's very first book WOODS, and I couldn't be more excited about this one. It's designed for De Rerum Natura's Cyrano, a gorgeous, soft French Merino yarn.
