Elements is here!
A little about how the book began:
Last Fall while having coffee with friends Bristol & Jerusha, I rambled a lot about ideas for 2014 and one was a small, limited edition book featuring 5 designs inspired by the Chinese Elements: Fire, Earth, Metal, Water, and Wood. Each designer would have the freedom to pick the yarn of their chose to create a sweater design inspired by their given element. They both gave me encouragement to see the idea through and within a week or two all the designers were chosen, yarns were picked, and the project was underway. I'm so happy to see this come together!
