that's right ladies! it's a book!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! weeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!!!!! a very special and dear to us collection. ISLAND is a collection of handknits designed by jane richmond and inspired by life on vancouver island. this book was a special artistic journey to bring jane's patterns to life with photography by nicholas kupiak, modeling by kylee shaw, and graphic design/layout by myself & jane. you will also find an introduction written by jane and a foreword by me as well. so exciting! i even have a few pics in the book too...but more on all of that later :)
i'll be back with more info on the whole book, the patterns, the process, when it's for sale and lots more fun deets next week. for now though i've put together a special video for you all to join us....and escape to the ISLAND. enjoy <3
