Last week it felt like Summer left us but today, a Monday of all days, the sun is out and I feel like it's going to be a great week; summer is coming back!
If you follow me on Instagram or Facebook you will know that I am working on what I have been calling a "mini collection." This "mini collection" is my premier knitwear collection; for the first time I am sitting on a lot of designs, waiting to release them all at once.
I have been working on this collection since last fall. It is a collection inspired by yarn, color and textures. For this collection, my first collection, it was important to knit with local Vancouver, BC Canadian yarn. Our knit/fiber/yarn community here in Vancouver has exceptional designers, yarn dyers and dedicated, loyal crafters; our community is big and still growing! This collection is designed exclusively using the beautiful SweetGeorgia Yarns.
I have a little history with SweetGeorgia Yarns that goes back about 7 years ago when I first started my adventure with yarn and knit design. It seemed like a natural choice to pick SweetGeorgia Yarns as my inspiration for my initial mini collection.
The yarn can be bright, colorful, vibrant, and it can also be calm, sophisticated and neutral. The qualities of yarn from merino, to mohair, to silk to thick to thin to chunky inspire texture!
This mini collection will be out this Summer 2016 as single PDF's, an e book and print copy. I will keep you all posted on dates and links...don't worry!
Let's hope this sun keep shining over the week to come......
