Ballerinas in Pink–Coming Wednesday June 19th!

I have a brand new collection that will be available through Knit Picks on June 19th, 2013! It’s been so hard to keep this one secret.

Here is a peek at my sketches and original concept. I was heavily influenced by Degas and French Fashion, specifically the color pallete in one of Degas’ ballerina paintings. Something really special was coming together at that time with french fashion and I tailored the pieces around what I thought Ballerinas of that time period would have worn after a hard practice session.

This book simply would not have been possible without the support from the Knit Picks team. Thank you Stacey, Kim, Kerin, and to all the test knitters and tech editors who made this happen. I’d like to specifically and publicly thank Pat, the most amazing sample knitter on the planet and one of my favorite all time people.  Thank you to my family for allowing me to work entirely too much, putting up with too much take out and a messy house while creating this book. Thank you.
