Back to School

Several snippets of news today – and well there should be, after so many months of silence…

Some time ago, I began to reconsider having a yarn line; for a variety of reasons, it was decided that it was time to let it go. So, as of today, the process of liquidating the yarn in stock has begun. Everything but the magazines, patterns and Briggs & Little yarn is 30% off the original price – the magazines are 50% off. Please note that all orders will ship from Canada, that supplies are limited and that sale prices cannot be applied retroactively. So, stock up!

In other news, I should add that the title of this post is not an analogy and that I am indeed back in school full time. Earlier this year, I enrolled in beauty school with the goal of becoming a hairdresser. Everything is working out great on that front, and I have been immersed in the world of hair for a little over 3 months. It’s about to get even more exciting later this month as we begin to learn the craft of hair colour…

With these announcements, some of you may wonder what lies next for me within the knitting world – I’ve wondered about this myself. However, a friend (pictured above – recognize him?) asked if I would be interested in joining his in house knitwear design team. Our first collection is finally unveiled this morning, which means I no longer have to keep it a secret. You can see the look book here

    Congratulations on all fronts!

    I’m sorry to hear that the yarn is being discontinued. I’m finally knitting up Agathe with the St. Denis I bought several years ago after seeing it at trunk show. The patterns in BT are fabulous, though, so I’m glad to hear you will continued to design.

    I echo what Jocelyn said. I’ve always been a big fan of your designs, so I’m glad to hear that you will still be found in BT, alongside a brand that I’ve come to love as well.

    Good luck with your new adventure!

    I am so happy you’ve found a wonderful place to keep designing — the industry can’t afford to lose talented folks like you. I am very sad to see the yarns go; I shall miss them dreadfully. They are so fun to knit with and so versatile! (sniffle) xoxoxoxo

    I’m sorry to see your yarn go; it had such a wonderful woolyness. I love your designs and hope you continue for many years.

    I so enjoyed your class last fall at KnitEast, and I adore your contributions to BT, especially with their Quebec connection. Hope you carry on your inspiring work in the knitting area. Best wishes.

    I’m very (very!) sad we are losing your fantastic yarn, but I wish you all the best in your new endeavours with BT. Your designs are always so talented and inspiring.

    Veronik,

    When I saw in the BT lookbook that you had done the hair and makeup in the photos and read that you had joined the design team there (your sweaters are gorgeous as usual!), I had an inkling that big changes were happening for you. I also wondered if maybe, as a result, St-Denis Yarns would be no more and was sad to learn on Ravelry that that was true. Your colours are fantastic and the quality of the yarn is wonderful. I will miss your beautiful yarn and have placed an order for old time’s sake and will enjoy every stitch.

    Good luck in your new adventures!
