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).
Welcome to the Vancouver Yarn blog! This space exists to celebrate all new local patterns, events, products and businesses. Please help me keep on top of all the local talent by submitting new content.
You can help by submitting the details of an event or new locally designed knitting/crochet pattern, or other newsworthy item and I'll write a blog post about it here on the blog. Thank you! ~Janna Vallee
Hi, I'm Janna. I'm the owner and natural dyer at Everlea Yarn and the tapestry instructor at The School of SweetGeorgia. I am a tapestry weaver, longtime knitter and 2013 graduate of Concordia University's Fibres and Material Practices program.
I created Vancouver Yarn in 2008 as a single space to hold as much of the textile awesomeness that I could find in and around Vancouver. Here on the VY blog I mostly share about local events, pattern releases as well as Community Highlights.
