In Bloom

In Bloom is our newest (gorgeous) spring collection, and I'm so thrilled that I get to talk a little more about it! There are fifteen light-weight projects ranging from the pretty little Flora Headscarf in Palette Bluebell to the super detailed lace weight Juliet Cardigan. There's something for everyone in this collection and it will definitely be my go-to as I prep for warmer weather and clearer skies.

The Making of a Cover

November is almost here! And that means that there's a new catalog in the works. In the spirit of cooler weather and cozier knits, the next cover is a tiny fiber village! I spent the past two winters in a tiny town in rural Vermont enjoying deep snow, icy ponds and farm houses blanketed with snow so this season I couldn't resist recreating some of those memories with soft, cozy fiber.
