Photos in Maine!

This weekend, I'll be joining some good friends in Maine, Carrie Bostick Hoge and Cecily Glowik MacDonald. We'll be working together to photograph the first 6 Caterpillar Knits designs!

Carrie has recently photographed the garments for Quince and Co. The photography is beautiful and simple, and the yarns are to die for. Absolutely great wool yarns that I'll be talking more in-depthly about in the future.

The last few months it has brought me a lot of joy to design, knit and crochet these garments. I really wasn't sure I'd be able to complete them all before the photo shoot, but I've surprised myself. When I set lofty goals, it's really a great feeling to see them through to the end. The first goal was to get all the garments created for the shoot. Next, is to get the patterns edited and laid out, then to finish the website! The most time-consuming part is behind me, and I can see the light at the end of the tunnel.

The first season is well on its way, and I'm very excited that I'll soon be able to share all the garments with you in their complete-ness.

Hold onto your hats folks—these are going to blow you away! (or if you don't have a hat, sit tight… a great pattern is on its way)
