People! The lovely Elizabeth from the Whitknits blog contacted me a while ago about an interview. So here it is Remember to enter the contest, you could win a free copy of my class on Craftsy! (the photo has nothing to do with the interview… other than being of your’s truly. It’s taken in my favorite store in Amsterdam, SPRMRKT!
Oh my word! The first patterns in the Westy’s Besties collection have just been released as knitalongs. The collection is 12 garments designed by Stephen West in Jared Flood’s Brooklyn Tweed yarn. My heart is racing and goosbumps are crawling down my spine (in the nicest way) because the awesome photos (by Jared Flood) bring back fond memories from our photo shoot in Iceland last summer. Beautiful models, awesome styling of Cirilia Rose, striking nature of North Iceland and the garments are not that bad either. From left to right: Ella (model), Diddi (model), Stephen (designer prodigy), me (producer), Jared (photographer) and Cirilia (stylist). We’re all wearing pieces from the collection!
Yay! My first pattern published by Knitty. I’m superduperhappy Love the photos Stephen West took of me in Amsterdam. I totally look nothing like a grandma of two… plus my beautiful sister Maren is stunning on the pictures I took of her by the ocean in Reykjavík. Here is a link to the pattern, enjoy!
Guys… I just HAD to make a top down version of Óðinn. I love this design and I LOVE knitting sweaters from the top. The new pattern includes both versions, top down and bottom up, new and revised pattern charts and a really cool table with all the numerical data for the top down version. You can buy it through my Ravelry store. While I was at it I thought it was highly appropriate to shoot some new and awesome photos. The model is the insanely popular and masculine (and as it turns out quite the model) Icelandic crime novel author Stefán Máni. Enjoy!
So this is me talking about knitting… Filmed at the fabulous Craftsy studio in Denver, CO, October 2012.
