Cassie who said “Pretty hat! I am working on a honey cowl, so that I can then make a hat, so that I can make a baby blanket 🙂 I don’t have enough time to knit all that, but that’s alright. This looks like it would have some lovely things to add to my never ending list!”
Thanks everyone for entering and a huge thanks to Jane and Shannon!

I’m super pumped to be included on the ISLAND blog tour today!! Thanks so much to Jane and Shannon for having me! I can’t believe that I finally learned how to knit and I can even follow a pattern (so far so good). I was beyond thrilled to get a copy of the book ISLAND by Jane Richmond and designed by Shannon.
It’s a truly stunning book. I’ve been drooling over Nikolos Kupiak‘s photography everyday since I got this little gem. The layout of the book is perfection, I love how the projects are beautifully showcased in the front of the book and the hardworking instructions are at the back. It’s a book I’ll be proudly leaving on my coffee table to show off. Yes, it’s that cool!
Beyond that I’m just so impressed with this lovely collection of projects. There are even projects that a newbie like me can complete and feel really proud about! Someday I really hope to work my way up to cardigan status, but I’m having such a blast now with the hat I made so far!
ISLAND is a collection of handknits designed by Jane Richmond and inspired by life on Vancouver Island. This book was a special artistic journey to bring Jane’s patterns to life with photography by Nicholas Kupiak, modeling by Kylee Shaw, and graphic design/layout & conception by Shannon Cook & Jane Richmond.
WHERE TO BUY?
ISLAND is available now through Amazon.com, Amazon.ca, and Amazon.co.uk. The e-book is available through the ISLAND Ravelry shop.
