Jane Richmond designs are beautifully simple, elegant and classic. This new book, with five gorgeous new patterns from her, looks like something to cherish. I love the slow pace of the video which I think is meant to reflect on the steady, slow life-style of islanders. It's hard not to slow down when your surrounded by beautiful forests and the vast ocean. I do really miss these things. When I visited from Montreal in August I didn't go into the forest until the last week of being there, and my husband took the words right out of my mouth, "why didn't we do this sooner?"
So, loving the looks of this book. Loving that it's new Jane, loving that it features lovely naturific photos between the design photos.
Jane offered a limited amount of copies at Knit City. Did any of you get your hands on one? Sadly I wasn't in Vancouver that weekend. Fail.
Hi, I'm Janna. I'm the owner and natural dyer at Everlea Yarn. I am also a tapestry weaver, longtime knitter and 2013 graduate of Concordia University's Fibres and Material Practices program.
I founded Vancouver Yarn in 2008. In 2010 I moved away from BC and was (a bit) absent here until I returned in 2016. Here on the VY blog I mostly share about local events and other local artists and crafters.
