The latest book from Laine Publishing is here – let’s look at Neons & Neutrals: a Knitwear Collection Curated by Aimée Gille of La Bien Aimée!
Aimée Gille is the dyer behind La Bien Aimée, and for this eclectic collection, she reached out to designers with a wide range of aesthetics, whose work differs from one another and speaks to all kinds of knitters. Her first book, Worsted, had a particular yarn as its theme, but this new book is all about color, and illustrates that theme with yarn of all kinds.
As its title suggests, Neons & Neutrals features unexpected, eye-catching color combinations and textures. Most garments and accessories are shown in two different colorways, showcasing yarn from a variety of producers and dyers.
Some of these designers are well known, and the others are worth getting to know – 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.
While we may not have every yarn shown in Neons & Neutrals, we have so many lovely substitutes throughout the shop – we’re happy to help you find the perfect yarn for your project!
Neons & Neutrals: a Knitwear Collection Curated by Aimée Gille of La Bien Aimée is $43, and available here at the shop – we’re still taking online orders for local pickup or shipping, as well. We also have a few copies of Worsted ($40), and many other beautiful books from Laine Publishing!
