A male and a female model sitting next to each other on large river rocks in the forest.

Journey into deep and fragrant forests to celebrate the turning of the year in the cherished company of those you hold closest. Breathe in the crisp air and linger a moment by the campfire, cozy in your new sweater, as you finish off a hat or two to pop atop a dear little head or to tuck into a coat pocket as a welcome gift.

Designer Bios

Susanna grew up in Northern Finland and currently lives just outside of Melbourne in Australia. She is a hobby sheep farmer who loves designing — buildings, graphic design, and, most recently, knitwear. She learned to knit from her grandmother at the age of five. After intermittently knitting through her teens, she rediscovered it in 2006 and has been an avid knitter ever since. Drawing design inspiration from architecture, nature, other crafts, and fashion, Susanna loves discovering and learning old and new techniques and coming up with interesting and innovative ways to use them.

Originally from Orenburg, Maria lives in the beautiful Russian city of Kaluga, the birthplace of cosmonautics. She learned to knit as a child, watching her grandmother who dyed goat down and sheep wool to be hand spun as fine thread and knitted into weightless Orenburg shawls. These days, Maria is pleased to dye yarn for bright and unusual projects as she tries to come up with innovative new designs.

Isabelle Ryan

Baltimore, Maryland

Isabelle is a high school History and English teacher who loves to weave stories both past and present into her knits. She most adores simple, utilitarian knits that are beautiful in their structure and perfect for everyday life as well as grand adventures. Knitting allows her to hearken back to past and tradition through the lens of the present and all we have learned about both knitting techniques and life.

Shelby Brakken

"I am Shelby and I am a storyteller and observer and a documenter. I have been photographing wedding and families for over a decade and I still feel lucky that I get to capture so many moments: the big and small and everything in between. I tell honest stories and believe that there is beauty in the breakdown."
