Knit Local with These Islands

March 16, 2015 by Evin

I’m delighted to tell you about a project I’ve been working on for the last year that finally launches this week! These Islands is a book focused on ethically-reared sheep, locally-milled wool, and fair-trade knitting wool. For a while I wondered if we are so focused on local and fair-trade ingredients for our foods, what about for our craft projects and this book grew from a conversation about it with local dyer and local wool advocate Sara Breitenfeldt and talented designer Suzanne McEndoo.

You can read more about or order the book on the publishing company shop page and if you pre-order your copy of the 62-page paperback this week, you receive the ebook FREE, gifted to you via Ravelry.
