Whoa, friends. We're living in a whirlwind right now - a whirlwind of emotions, of love, support, and work. We launched the crowdfunding campaign for WOODS on Feb 9, and it's been non-stop ever since.
Keeping with the spirit of our first blog post, we'd love to share a little "behind the scenes" of what's happened in the making stories HQ in February!
The crowdfunding starts!! Mark your calendars, friends - February 9 it is and we need you all to help us spread the love!
More branding goodness - we’re going to have our final logo ready in February and probably a few more design elements we can share!
Tech editing - numbers, numbers, numbers. Feb 1 to 15 we are going to spend in front of all the patterns, making sure that the math works out, that they are readable and ready to share with the test knitters.
Test knitting!! Feb 15 is the start of our test knitting - follow us on Instagram and look through the hashtags #woodsmakingstories and #makingstories to discover sneak peeks of the designs to be included in the book.
And oh boy, has February delivered. Let's dive into the details!
Seriously, there are no words for how awesome this knitting community of ours is. None of us has experienced such an outpouring of love and support and sharing ever before - THANK YOU. To every one of you who has backed us, has talked about us, has posted about us - THANK YOU.
Head over to Indiegogo today to check out our crowdfunding video and back the campaign!
First up - our making stories brand analysis, style guide, and logo!
Isn't this the most gorgeous logo of all times??
And if that wasn't enough, Vivian also designed a few very fun illustrations to be used for our swag stickers!
AHHH! We're over the moon with them, and we can't wait to show you more of her work.
Numbers, numbers, numbers!! After having received all the alpha versions of the patterns at the end of January, it was time to crunch some numbers and review patterns so that they could go into test knitting.
We have to say - our designers did an amazing job! We're so thankful to be working with so many talented, professional, hard-working women - wow.
Last, but very, very certainly not least, test knitting started!! We have a pool of close to 200 test knitters who are doing a kick-ass job to help us make the patterns as good as they can possibly be.
We are so, so happy to have all of them in our making stories community and team. Make sure you check out their projects under the #woodstestknitting hashtag - and the pattern hashtags as well!
Here's a glimpse of some of our current favourites:
