For this global recording, Joji and Veera join us from Argentina and Finland to tell us more about Interpretations Volume 8! The pair have been working together for years on this collaborative project where they each create a design from a selection of words, resulting in a collection of 12 beautiful patterns. Joji and Veera chat about working long distance and what that is like during a pandemic, their stunning photoshoots, and the secret of how they keep each other motivated.

Interpretations Volume 8 launches on 7th December, when you’ll also be able to see all the beautiful patterns in full. We’ve included some sneak peeks here (there are more on the product page too!), and you might like to know that the Ladybird Wrap above was Veera’s top pick of Joji’s designs, and the Baroque Shawl (below) was Joji’s fav of Veera's! 


As mentioned, you can now pre-order your copy of Volume 8! We also chat about the giftable offerings that are currently available on our website here, including book bundles, subscriptions and gift cards. So whether you’re looking to share the knitty love with your nearest and dearest or find a treat for yourself, there is something for everyone!
