Belle indeed. Oh how I love Sivia's designs. This version of Belle Nuit is knit up in Sweetgeorgia's Silk Crush in Cayenne. Tres Belle.
I love it when local designers use locally made yarn for their patterns. Remember when Jane Richmond did this last August? Love it. Anyone know of any other locally designed patterns where they've used locally made yarn? I bet if I went through Sivia's archive of patterns I'd find things knit up in Indigo Moon and/or Sweet Fiber Yarns (formerly known as Yarn Candy, Sweet Fibre).
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 as a single space to hold all the textile awesomeness Vancouver (and beyond) offers. 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.
Do you have an event, KAL, yarn or pattern release, launch or other thing you want us to post? Just send your press release to us at
