Winged Knits Volume 1: The beginning…

I have decided to self publish a book. It is altogether super exciting and scary!

Here are some of the yarns that I am starting with, 3 are not in the photo because they have not arrived or are with sample knitters:)

Design Theme:  simple, wearable designs with interesting shapes/ details.

Color Theme: the colors of seaglass (with a bit of leeway)

Photo/Styling Theme: Neutral styling and background colors. The pieces will be shot indoors with interesting architecture and some playful props and a theme of “home”.

I will continue posting about the steps in this crazy journey and looking for some feedback as I get further into it!

Thank you for visiting,
