ISLAND Pre-Order Book Release!!!


A collection of hand knits designed by Jane Richmond and inspired by life on Vancouver Island. This book was a special artistic journey to bring Jane's patterns to life with photography by Nicholas Kupiak, modeling by Kylee Shaw, and graphic design/layout  & conception by Shannon Cook & Jane Richmond.

More than just a knitting book, ISLAND is a visual and creative experience showcasing the majestic beauty of Vancouver Island. Filled with designs & fibers that are true to Jane's classic and modern aesthetic, ISLAND not only makes you want to knit, it also inspires you to lose yourself in an adventure of your own.

Be inspired, get lost in the journey, set your imagination free, and ESCAPE to the ISLAND.

  3. I live in Victoria, and want to pre-order. Some of by Bitchy Bees knitting group buddies are even in your knitting group, and could presumably pick up the book for me. Is there a way for me to order without paying shipping? My email is LindsayHill@nekkidsheep.com
