Sometimes the best feedback we receive is when it comes from people we truly admire.
This happened a couple of months ago when Mel invited me to be a creative part of 6 Bits Storybooks. I've long admired the positive energy that Mel puts out into the world and I've shared a few of her designs here with you all before. She has a mindfulness that I find really inspiring and have been trying to include into my own daily routine. When she asked if I would be a regular story teller, I was nervous and unsure. With a little hand holding though I have stepped forward and now the words are pouring out thick and fast.
I can't wait to share them with you.
6 Bits is an exciting innovation in knitting publications from the journey of story tellers: knitters, photographers, writers, designers, friends and nature. 6 Bits is a digital quarterly for knitters who love to immerse themselves deeply in their knitting experience, inviting both readers and contributors to make new discoveries and meaningful connections with yarn providers, designers, writers and the creative community around them, paying close attention to the origin of all the elements that are integral parts.
If you visit 6 Bits Storybooks today, you will be able to read a little insight into how my love for storytelling first began. I'm so honoured to be a part of this gathering of women who want to open up and share their individual knit journeys with you.
I hope you will join us. Subscriptions are already available and the first issue, Unearth, is released on 15th October 2015.
