It is APRIL, how did THAT happen?! We are firmly entrenched in 2012, and I am excited about the travel filled summer ahead of me. This month I’ll be visiting Atlanta for Stitches West, then San Francisco for the very first time. I don’t have much of an agenda there besides eating and seeing yarny friends.

June of course means TNNA, a sort of summer camp for professional knitters. I look forward to copious ice cream, the best in the world, and the affordable, unique boutiques, especially Substance

July is when a lifelong dream comes true and I head to ICELAND for Body, Mind & Lopi. There will be shopping, sight-seeing and all sorts of Icelandic treats, but there will be work as well! Stephen, Ragga and I will all teach. Stephen and I have also been working on a collection that we plan to shoot in Iceland. I’ve been calling it Miðgarðr, or Midgard, and it will feature Skacel yarns! We share a love for neutrals with BOLD colors, and a desire for dramatic scale, something that Icelandic landscapes certainly offer. 

Here is a peek at some of my favorite images from our collaborative mood board. It has been so interesting to work across an ocean, and I can’t wait to see what emerges…
