ORI AMI KNITS. CHAPTER 1

Most of you know by or have read earlier that me and amazing photographer and graphic designer Vanessa Yap-Einbund/coloursknits with a contribution from Kirsten Johnstone have been working for the past and this year on a publication. Which is a book, a digital and printed one. After obscene amount of work that we shared I must admit, producing a book is not an easy job at all. It is very demanding and very meticulous. Hours and hours of discussing the details, then actually arranging them, making them, producing, writing, editing, marketing and a million of other things to go with it. I would like to confess that I have learnt so much from this experience thus far. Sometimes it came at the cost of spending less time with loved ones and friends, but they all turned out being very understanding and helpful, for which I am deeply appreciative and thankful.

Last week we have started sending out the first installment of the digital book. We have named our first chapter - Practical geometry. Here is a short preview of the garments. There is much more to follow, that reminds me that I need to go back to work right now and leave you with these to ponder. Please let us know your thoughts.
