As I woke up today and groggily attempted to clear sleep off my eyes, my inbox on ravelry was bursting with comments, my twitter feed had tons of replies and I had emails in my inbox. What about?
My collection with Juniper Moon Farm!
I met the JMF team at TNNA in June, and we discussed the possibility of me doing a collection for one of their newly developed yarns, Moonshine.
Moonshine is a single wool/silk blend with a beautiful shine and a versatility I have not seen on many singles.
Wheels got turning and I designed a 14 piece collection with rock+purl touches and a feminine flair taken to a countryside location. The work was developed between August and October, and you will believe me if I say that waiting THIS long to share photos with you and being able to say this was going ahead was very very tough! I got previews in early January!! I can’t wait that long for anything!
Here are some small teasers of the collection details, with the pattern names below. You can get queueing and favoriting on Ravelry now – here is the book source page: Moonshine Collection.
I had SO much fun designing this collection and it also gave me a good dose of reality on what it’s like to manage a big workload on a small amount of time.
In the coming weeks I will discuss more on the garments and accessories and I will have giveaways for copies of the books!
For now, I’d like to know – which one will you knit first?
