Twist Collective Fall 2011 is out!!

Twist Collective is such a fun browse. Beautiful photography and so many juicy patterns.  Each edition has mini "stories" with imaginative visual themes.

The Fall 2011 Edition includes Spirited Away, City by the Bay (shot in San Francsico), Ma Belle Guitare. You get to live vicariously through the photography. I feel really honoured to have a pattern in such cool company.

Ma Belle Guitare features the Corrina Rose Band from Montreal (you can listen to them here, lovely!), who model the knits. Ma Belle Guitare photography by award-winning Jane Heller (she also has an Etsy shop where you can buy archival reprints of her work, which is gorgeous).

Canadian music, Canadian photographer, Canadian wool, it all warms my Canadian heart.

Dylan is a simple, trench coat, double breasted, worked in a nice fat gauge. Yes, I know, it's a whole jacket, which can seem like a lot. But it really isn't at that gauge, and the editor of Twist (Kate Gilbert who is also a talented designer) tweaked my original sketch to simplify the finishing.

It's probably the same number of stitches as a pair of finely knit socks (okay, okay, that's exaggeration, but you get the idea).
