A side note: We are thrilled that Aimée of La Bien Aimee has decided to kick off her European book tour at Loop! Aimée will visit us, with all of the samples, and do a meet + greet in the shop the weekend of April 28th + 29th! She'll be joined by Jonna of Laine publishing, and if it is anything like our last book launch for Aimée's book, 'Worsted' that we had here last April, it will be fabulous!
More details will come soon, but pencil in that weekend to visit us and meet Aimée and Jonna, have your books signed, see the samples up close, and have Aimée help you with lots of yarny ideas!
Neons & Neutrals: A Knitwear Collection Curated by Aimée Gille of La Bien Aimée is a sequel to Aimée’s first book, the best-selling Worsted. This collection, if possible, is even better and includes 16 patterns from 16 talented designers. It is an eclectic collection of patterns that invites crafters to combine yarn in new and unexpected ways across brands and bases. The designs showcase modern knitting at its best, using a variety of techniques and unique and unexpected color combinations. Most of the patterns are photographed in two different samples – worked in different colors and yarns, giving you ample inspiration for your own versions.
The collection celebrates solidarity and cooperation: to showcase the many talented people in the knitting community, Aimée has put together a collection of not only patterns from designers around the world, but yarns from a variety of producers and dyers. All of them work beautifully together and different sizes and price points have also been taken into account.
The book features designs by the following designers: Inese Sang, Maaike van Geijn, Karen Cronje, Anna Husemann, Layla Yang, Caitlyn Turowski, Cecelia Campochiaro, Valerie Ng, Maysa Tomikawa, Florence Spurling, Lotta H Löthgren, Brandi Cheyenne Harper, Marie Régnier, Susan Chin, Brienne Moody and Julia Wilkens.
