I’ve had a secret.
And I don’t have to keep it any longer!
I’ve joined the Brooklyn Tweed Design Team!
Buckle up, because this post is going to be much longer than usual.
It’s hard to find the right words to express what the last few months have meant to me.
For the past year I have hemmed and hawed over whether to officially stop my freelance work as an art director and pursue knit design full time. I knew in my heart I wanted to, but there’s always that little bit of doubt.
Enter Jared Flood.
First, the shock when he asked me if I might be interested.
Uhhh… hang on a minute while I get back on my chair and check my pulse.
The chance to work with Jared and Michele and Leila (although she’s now behind the scenes… and missed for sure) is an opportunity any designer would die for. Of course I “thought” about it for a few days, but my answer was already YES!!!
Then the extra excitement when I heard who else was joining the team. The master, Véronik.
And before I knew it, we were all diving head first into our initial collaboration together.
(All while my life was quite literally turning inside out moving from Anchorage to Saint Louis!)
Let’s just say, I am one lucky woman and yes, I know it.
So now, I am honored and I am humbled and I am excited beyond words to finally be able to share this with a wider audience than just my family and closest friends. (All of whom deserve an award for patiently putting up with having such a knitting nerd in their life!)
If you haven’t already done so, go immediately to see the Fall 2012 Look Book for our first of many collections to come. And while you’re trying to decide which 4 or 5 or 6 are your favorite and which one you will knit first, I will work on putting together another post giving you a behind the scenes scoop of my individual pieces.
Fall is here. And you know what that means. Let the knitting begin!
