If you’re an avid knitter, you’ve probably come across the beautiful designs of Jane Richmond. What you might not know is that she lives in and works on Vancouver Island – the same beautiful corner of the world where I was born and raised.
While developing the Nostalgia Club, and imagining designs which would work well with my yarns and story, and Jane’s book Island immediately came to mind. Island really speaks to me; both for the clever and elegant designs, and for the superlative photography and styling. For me, browsing through this collection was like taking a trip home to visit the most beautiful places on Vancouver Island. It made me miss home!
win a copy of ISLAND … and some beautiful yarn too!
Jane has kindly agreed to sponsor a giveaway of her ebook Island, and I’ve chosen 3 beautiful skeins of Rainbow Heirloom yarn which would pair perfectly with these designs. To enter, simply comment on this post, and let me know which design you would knit first. For extra chances to win, enter on Instagram and Facebook too! The lucky winner will be drawn on Sunday, July 26th at 8pm BST.
Which yarns have I picked for our lucky winner?
What have I been knitting lately? I’m working on the Strathcona scarf from Island in Rainbow Heirloom Twinkle light in ‘driftwood’ – this is July’s Nostalgia Club yarn, and it is only available till the end of the month, so order now if you want some!
I’ve also recently finished a tiny Stovetop hat in Rainbow Heirloom Sweater in ‘driftwood’, this month’s Nostalgia club colour. Each month has a featured base, but for a limited time you can order the club colourway on our most popular base, Sweater, too!
