For the past several months I have been busy working on the development of a new yarn company, Quince & Co. Owners Pam Allen and Bob Rice (from Spurwink Cordage) have joined forces in creating a debut line of yarn spun mostly from American wool. To kick things off we have 4 different weights, each come in a beautiful range of 37 colors. Truly amazing, right?
Well, this past weekend was the photo shoot for our first collection. I'm still recovering from all the sun, fun, and hard work. Pam, Bob, Cecily, our beautiful model Lydia, and myself all trekked out to Crescent Beach for some delicious Maine coast and woods. You can't dream up a more lovely location! I was a little nervous being the photographer—no wait—scratch that. I was insanely nervous being the photographer for this shoot, but as soon as the first shutter of my camera released, the anxiety melted away. I wish I could post some photos, but I don't want to spoil our website launch. We're working away on pattern writing, yarn photography, and all the tiny logistics of operating an online business. Oh yeah, we'll be mostly online to start. However, if you're lucky enough to live in (or visit) the Portland area, KnitWit will also carry the full line.
