Hope everyone had a fantastic end of the summer! I'm sad it's all over but starting to get excited about wearing sweaters and cozy accessories again! Last week I worked on finally putting together inspiration boards for our two collections of yarn that are full of trims, Gypsy Garden and Rolling Stone. Take a peek below...
The Gypsy Garden yarns are the first collection of yarn that I designed and spun. The idea behind these yarns was probably mulling inside my mind for a long time before I actually sat down to spin them. The main idea I hoped to infuse them with was a feeling of happy dreamlike freedom. The image of the dancing girl and embellished bicycles show here embody that essence.
I’ve always loved flower chains and they were a natural inspiration for me as well as wrists
stacked high with bright friendship bracelets.
Below are the images and materials that inspired the Rolling Stone yarns...
Our Rolling Stone yarn is inspired by all things India, mainly the collection of trims and
materials that I brought back after countless trips while starting Knit Collage there.
When I first began traveling to India I instantly fell in love. Just being there and
watching life around you unfold is amazing.
A few of my favorite things from India are the insanely gorgeous flower markets, the
intricately painted elephants and the trucks that their male drivers fill with colorful
plastic chandeliers to decorate them. The collection of colors, fabrics and sparkles
present everywhere here are the main inspiration. This collection of yarn features
recycled sari silk, trims from local markets like rhinestone paisleys and metallic
flowers as well as hand-printed fabrics from Jaipur. This is just a small glimpse
into what inspires us but hope you enjoy it! Our big shipment of yarn arrives soon and
we're super busy prepping for that...but we will have a few new free patterns
coming soon, so stay tuned!
