Have you heard about Beatrice Perron Dahlen's kickstarter campaign? She's is asking for support for her book project, Maine Knits.
When I moved to Maine I found my home in more ways than one. A Navy brat through and through, I bought a house and put down roots. And discovered the inspiring and thriving fiber community of Maine. I've often thought about how wonderful it would be to see a collaboration between all the hand knitwear designers, yarn makers, dyers and wool-loving folk of Maine. A chance to honor the creative work each is doing, joining talents to make something extraordinary to offer up to the rest of the hand knitting community. A book that comes straight from the bottom of my heart.
MAINE Knits includes knitting designs by Carrie Bostick Hoge, Alicia Plummer, Bristol Ivy, Cecily Glowik Mcdonald, Mary Jane Mucklestone, Elizabeth Smith, Leah B. Thibault, Kristen TenDyke, Leila Raabe and Beatrice Perron Dahlen. And a foreward written by Pam Allen of Quince & Co.
