Tall Trees, Hazy Skies & Happy Memories
Hello friends! Today I’m super excited to share with you all about our latest collaboration. I've mentioned multiple times before about how excited I was when Leen from Picot en Tricot designed her Happy Memories Shawl using Origin. I had no idea she was going to do this and it was such a lovely surprise to have our yarn featured in such a heartfelt design.
I love what Leen has to say about this design and her inspiration behind it: Knitting this shawl brought back some happy memories from my childhood, it features abstract wheat ears and a wide border of garter stitch representing a waving wheat field. My friend and I used to jump the rows of straw and play in the surrounding fields while the adults where hard at work pressing and collecting straw bales.
When I got back to Germany in the Fall and started thinking about the collaborations I wanted to pursue in the following months, I knew I wanted to work with Leen. I also knew that there would be knitters out there who would want their own version of this delightfully cozy shawl. I'm so excited to share with you our Happy Memories Shawl Kits coming to the shop on Tuesday, October 16th. Each kit will include 3 skeins of Origin as well as the pattern PDF for you to download. I so hope you're going to love them!
Now for a few more shots from this gorgeous shoot:
