Thank you to Brutally Beautiful Photography and Arlin ffrench for taking photos for this project.

All of the yarns used in this collection are from Shibui Yarns- and they knit up like a dream- I have fallen so deeply in love with their yarns.

All notions are made by my dear friend Kristan MacIntyre of Knitter’s Jewellery- she makes amazing magic!

Thank you to my tech editors and test knitters. A project like this couldn’t happen without the help of so many amazing folks.
