Knit Local!

Knit Local is finally out and after only a few weeks is going to its second printing!

I worked on this book for 1.5 years and after all the designing, knitting, emailing, researching and work put into it, it’s wonderful to hold it in my hands and be able to page through it.

I worked with so many incredible designers and yarn companies. Farmers are truly rockstars and they somehow manage to do it all. I have nothing but the highest respect for them.

It is my hope that this book brings awareness to knitters (and all crafters!) about buying local to the United States the benefits it has to our country and local communities. By working together we can make a huge difference.

  1. I was happy to find a book featuring small local farms and their yarns. However I was disappointed when I read the feature on Swan’s Island to find that some of the photos that accompanied the piece had nothing to do with Swan’s Island’s yarn. The island sheep and the wool photos are from Nash Island (those are my hands in the photo). These sheep are not merino and Nash Island Wool does not sell any of their wool to Swan’s Island. I am sure it was not your intent to mislead your readers and I felt that you might want to know this.
