For living in the woods, it amazes me how many folks “from away” we get to see, how many make the trip up to Maine. This past weekend we were lucky to have talented Gudrun Johnston visit Purl Diva in Brunswick, for a book signing. My friends and I made a day of it. We lunched overlooking the river, hit the farmer’s market for pie and the flea market for enchanting vintage finds. The cherry on top – tea and cookies with Gudrun, our hostess Ellen, and many old friends and new, including designers Carrie Bostick Hoge and Cecily Glowik MacDonald. Fun Fun Fun.
Gudrun’s new collection of patterns, The Shetland Trader, Book One – Ten designs inspired by the Shetland Islands is gorgeous! I was lucky to be the photostylist. A dream-job what with such exquisite designs, extraordinary location and talented crew. The book is a perfect gift for the knitter in your life…who might just be you!
